Siarkowicz grew up in the hamlet of Bayport, a small seaside community on the south shore of Long Island, New York. With miles of shoreline and nearby Fire Island National Seashore as his playground, he established an early relationship with the outdoors and wildlife. His love for photography began when he was nine years old.
At 15 he joined an age-old local tradition by becoming a bayman when he obtained his commercial clamming license. In the afternoon, after selling his day’s catch, he would pilot his craft, with camera in hand, to explore the local rivers, estuaries, marshlands and Pine Barrens.
Siarkowicz’s photographic vision broadened and eventually led him to settle in Palm Coast, Florida. Here he has concentrated on capturing the essence of Flagler County and beyond. With six magazine covers to his credit, his photographic art is also on display in the offices of former President George W. Bush, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the Port Orange and St. Augustine offices of U.S. Congressman Ron DeSantis, the Palm Coast office of Florida Representative Travis Hutson, and the Flager Beach Historical Museum.
