He was twice (2010 and 2013) granted a scholarship of the Minister of Culture and he teaches at Academy of Photography, in Warsaw (2012-2013).

Roginski made a name for himself with his UFO project, a series of staged shots developed from 2005-07 which used artificial lighting to conjure up night scenes of extraterrestrial landings.
