Who I am

Born in Berlin in 1988, I developed an interest in photography at an early age, which developed into a career after graduating from Lette Verein in 2015. In 2022 I aquired a Bachelor's degree in business communication. I'm very interested in people and technology. Dealing with interpersonal connections and getting to know different realities of life fascinates me. I'm also enthusiastic about new technological developments as well as the achievements of past decades. The medium of film, whether in photography or moving images, has an influence on my creative work and is occasionally used in current projects alongside new digital technology. This synergy between different media of old and new inspires my creative nature and helps me tell exciting visual stories.

Artist Portraits

High-quality portraits convey professionalism and dedication to craft. They present the artist or person as a serious and committed professional, influencing how they are being perceived by industry peers, collaborators, and the general public.

A memorable portrait increases the chances of being remembered. It becomes an iconic image that can be associated with a person's work and overall career.

For people who appreciate the visual arts alongside their main craft, a portrait offers a canvas for artistic expression - it provides a way to collaborate and create images that reflect your own creativity and vision.

Business Portraits / Employee Portraits

The versatility of these portraits extends to their use across various platforms, seamlessly promoting a unified and professional company culture. A coordinated look, tailored to align with brand guidelines and preferences, adds a personalized touch to each portrait, yet reinforcing a cohesive visual identity.

In essence, investing in professional employee portraits goes beyond mere imagery - it contributes significantly to fostering a positive workplace image and fortifying your company's overall visual identity.

Professional architecture photography excels in highlighting intricate details, craftsmanship, and design elements, effectively communicating a sense of quality and precision.

This form of visual storytelling offers a comprehensive view of the building or structure, providing insights into its surroundings and context. This contextual understanding can contribute to a heightened appreciation of the object's location and environment, thereby influencing its perceived status.

A skillfully crafted architectural photograph goes beyond the visual, tapping into the realm of emotions and that resonates with viewers. This emotional connection fosters a positive association with the object, leaving a lasting impression and increasing its memorability and perceived value in the eyes of stakeholders or potential buyers.

High-quality visuals play a crucial role in creating a positive first impression, instantly grabbing the attention of potential buyers and cultivating a sense of desirability for the property. In today's digital age, where the majority of homebuyers initiate their search online, professional real estate photography becomes paramount in enhancing a property's virtual presence. Through well-lit and expertly composed photographs, the unique features of the property are showcased in the best possible light, fostering an emotional connection with prospective buyers.

This professional approach extends beyond aesthetics, contributing to the perceived value of the property. Eye-catching images not only generate heightened interest but also encourage prolonged engagement with the listing, increasing the likelihood that potential buyers seriously consider the property.

In a competitive market, properties featuring professional photography often stand out, drawing more attention and interest compared to listings with generic or lower-quality visuals. The impact of high-quality images can evoke emotions that help potential buyers envision the lifestyle associated with the property. This emotional connection, in turn, can drive a willingness to pay a higher price.

Moreover, the benefits extend to the efficiency of the sales process. Properties showcased with professional photography tend to sell faster, resulting in a quicker turnaround time.

Architecture Stocktaking / Construction Progress Documentation

Construction documentation can serve as a visual record for project managers to track and manage the progress of various construction phases. It helps ensure that the project stays on schedule and within budget. Visual documentation also provides a clear and concise means of communication among project stakeholders, including architects, engineers, contractors, and clients. It facilitates effective communication of project milestones, challenges, and achievements.

A documentation also creates a historical record of a project's evolution. It can be valuable for future reference, maintenance, renovations, or for showcasing the construction process in marketing materials. Regularly sharing documented progress with clients keeps them informed about the status of their investment. Visual updates help clients understand a project's development and can contribute to feeling more engaged in the construction process.

Aerial Photography

Advancements in technology, particularly the widespread use of unmanned aerial systems, commenly referred to as drones have made aerial photography more accessible and affordable than ever before. Drones equipped with high-resolution cameras allow for flexible and precise aerial imaging in various applications.

Quoting a price as a creative professional without knowing specific details about a project can be challenging for several reasons:

Project Scope:
The scope of a project greatly influences the amount of work required. Without details on the size, complexity, and specific needs of the project, it's difficult to estimate the time and resources that will be invested.

Technical Requirements: The equipment and technical expertise needed for a project can vary. High-end cameras, specialized lighting, and post-production resources all impact costs. Knowing the technical specifications required is crucial for an accurate quote.

Location and Logistics:
The shooting location, travel requirements, and logistical considerations contribute to the overall effort and cost. Understanding these factors helps in providing a realistic estimate.

Post-Production Needs:
Editing, color grading, sound design, and other post-production aspects are integral to the final product. The complexity of these tasks depends on the project's requirements.

The turnaround time for a project can affect pricing. Rushed projects may require additional resources or adjustments to the creative process, influencing the overall cost.

Revisions and Changes:
The number of revisions and changes anticipated by the client can impact the pricing structure. A clearer understanding of potential revisions helps in establishing a fair quote.

Licensing and Usage: Determining how the final product will be used and whether there are any licensing considerations is crucial. Usage rights, distribution, and intended audience can all influence pricing.

Given the diverse nature of creative projects, obtaining a comprehensive understanding of these factors allows a creative professional to tailor their services and provide a more accurate and fair quote. This collaborative approach helps align client expectations with the creative vision and ensures a successful and satisfactory outcome for both parties.
