About Cro + Kow


Cro + Kow is the joint creative space of photographers Sylwia Kowalczyk and Simon Crofts. We are based in central Edinburgh, Scotland.

Sylwia studied photography at the Krakow Academy of Fine Art and Edinburgh College of Art, and Simon studied at Oxford University. We have a wide range of editorial, commercial and publishing clients, and we are also working constantly on our personal photo projects. More of Sylwia's personal work is at www.sylwiakowalczyk.com, and Simon's is at www.simoncroftsphoto.com.

We are available for photography assignments, whether in Scotland or abroad. Outside Scotland, we have a particular speciality of assignments to Ukraine, Russia, Poland and other Eastern European and former Soviet countries. Apart from English we speak fluent Polish and Russian and reasonable French!
