I was born in Germany, where I grew up, graduated from school and worked until recently. Oh, how love can change your life sometimes! My, now husband was the reason for me to move to California in October 2013.
Since I was in my early teen years photography has been a big part of my life. I always have bright eyes for the, sometimes hidden, magical moments all around me. The greatest feeling as a photographer is when I am able to catch this very moment.
This is my challenge. A beautiful, fun challenge, which always arouses my curiosity and keeps me going.
I started out shooting on analog film and later I invested in my first DSLR-camera. I have been always fascinated about how you can transform a picture's mood and message by changing light, angle, speed, and the momentum itself.
The biggest part to learn for me, though, was not the technical aspects of photography. Which, of course, is fundamental for me to do my work; but it was, after all, more to learn the importance how to connect with people I work with. This is, at the end of the day, the biggest skill you have to have.
I am also an educated Film and Videoeditor, I've been working from 2007-2013 for various TV shows, commercials and documentaries. These years of experiences helped me a lot to achieve the feeling and ability to adjust to challenging situations and work with all different types of people.
For me, photography is not just the magic in capturing beautiful special moments. It is also the magic in creating a connection between people by perceiving and catching their uniqueness, and making them feel comfortable. This will then inspire confidence and trust to work with me as a team.
