Fotomarathon Berlin, Winner 2014
At last, that´s me, Lena, on a photo! As you might guess, I usually prefer to be behind the camera, more at ease with getting nervous subjects to relax in front of it or with chasing authentic moments.
Here are some more singularities you might want to know about me:
I recently finished my education as a Photo Designer at Chicocihan Photography Academy, Berlin, getting a professional and practical education in digital and analog studio and outdoor photography (portrait, fashion, beauty, retouch).
Currently, I publish my street photography in Berlin´s city magazine „Zitty“, do travel- food- and city life coverages on „Mit Vergnügen“, a Berlin City Blog, shoot fashion and product photos for a big online retailer on a regular basis.
Born in Siegburg (NRW, Germany), I moved to Berlin in the year of 2000. After obtaining my Master of Arts in Cultural Science in Frankfurt (Oder) I traveled the world doing work for theatres and music festivals.
The cityscape of big cities filled with genuine people and endless cultures is one of my favorite topics ever since. My passion is to discover and arrange ‘apparently’ random but poetic compositions, harmonies and details of people and their surroundings. That´s why I love outdoor portraits, fashion shoots and events on location and street photography, but I am of course not limited to it.
Coming from a huge expertise with theatre, I know how to visually put into life your ideas and concepts and how to tell your story in pictures. I´m delighted to hear your thoughts about what you have in mind and I’d be more than happy to write a corresponding text, upon request.
