Mjög ástríðufullur fyrir hefðbundinni ljósmyndatækni og blandar þeim saman við stafræn gögn. Einbeittir sér að sköpun á einföldum, oft svart-hvítum og mikilla andstæðra mynda.

Adam Dereszkiewicz – pasjonat i samouk fotograficzny, grafik. Organizator plenerów i warsztatów fotograficznych. Członek Gdańskiego Towarzystwa Fotograficznego. Od 2014 sprawujący funkcję Prezesa GTF.
W fotografii pasjonuje forma analogowa, tradycyjne techniki reprodukcji obrazu oraz mieszanie technik cyfrowych z tradycyjnymi. W kwestii stylistycznej stara się kreować obrazy proste, bardzo często czarno-białe i kontrastowe. Nie stroni od eksperymentów, jak na przykład zdjęcia obiektywem własnej konstrukcji, wiekowymi aparatami o wyjątkowo prostej budowie czy łączeniu technik fotograficznych z graficznymi. Realizuje się głównie w cyklach fotograficznych zestawiając proste obrazy w przekaz kompozycyjny a także, dość często, społeczny. Najlepiej czuje się w kategoriach portretu, abstrakcji fotograficznej oraz aktu.
Juror konkursów fotograficznych. Laureat paru konkursów. Uczestniczył w kilkudziesięciu wystawach zbiorowych oraz prezentował autorskie projekty fotograficzne, zbierając pochlebne recenzje swoich prac.
