I am a fashion and portrait photographer with a preference for natural light.

Born in East Germany, I grew up behind the iron curtain before moving to France, Canada, and London where I spent considerable time working in tour management and assisting various fashion photographers. I  now live between Berlin and London and am travelling frequently for assignments whilst chasing the perfect light.

I am drawn as much to the natural beauty of my models as capturing the perfect moment. In my work, I am trying to portray real intimacy and emotion. Images that speak to and touch the viewer. 

The girls I love to capture, are sophisticated and strong, yet sensual and vulnerable. I prefer working with a model’s given personality rather than trying to transform her into a specific idea.

In my work, nothing is overly conceptualized. Instead of forcing it, I let go of an idea of what a specific moment should look like. It is my goal to stay authentic and real so the image is alive, personal and provides a narrative. I seek out the perfect Imperfection.
