People photography portfolio

Portrait photography is a photograph of a person or group of people that captures the subject's personality using effective lighting, backdrops, and poses.

Portrait photography has to be done in a pleasant atmosphere in which the customer can feel comfortable in his own skin.

The lighting and room temperature need to be set correctly – it is just as important that when you choose to be your photographer that you make sure that you can trust my work and I, if we can communicate well and openly, you will feel all the more comfortable, at the same time we guarantee a smooth and fun photo shoot.

Ideally, we will hold a short preliminary talk about the course of the shoot so that you can prepare for it and loosen up the mood a little. Ideally, let me provide you with a glass of water or a cup of coffee for the first time, go to the toilet briefly and, for example, straighten your hairstyle again. We start as soon as you feel confident and ready to start.

The elements of successful portrait photography must be congruent, so your body language plays a major role here.

This means it's even more important that you feel relaxed and confident - so I won't just be recording you during your shoot, I'll be guiding you along the way and giving you good tips on how to work these elements with your posture and can represent it best with your facial expression. 

With this in mind, please do not hesitate to explain your wishes to me in advance as clearly as you can so that, in the first place, you will enable me to ensure the perfect result.

From classic to unconventional, the quality of portrait photography largely depends on the overall image design and composition

How would you like to see yourself? Elegant, charming, brave or sensitive? You can decide how you want to show yourself to the world through a successful portrait. Among other things, you can present your future employers with a well-considered appearance and provide information about your personality in order to create the best possible first impression.

Would you like to introduce your company?

Show your employees your best side or introduce your team to your customers by having them take high-quality, unique employee portraits and professional business portraits.

My goal is to create records that suit your personal expression and taste.

Portraits aren't just pictures of smiling people, the complete "package" has to match, like the hairstyle and the outfit for example.

The most important thing is that as an experienced portrait photographer, I can express the impression of your appearance that you want to convey with the photo to the outside, so that you are satisfied with the end result and achieve your goal.

It is therefore all the more important that you clearly communicate your ideas to me, e.g. E.g.: "I want to appear serious and reliable", or "I want to come across as likeable and unusual". This way I can get a clear picture of the desired result and guide you optimally during the shoot.

Extraordinary couple photos

Love captured in pictures

According to many proverbs, love is perhaps the most beautiful feeling in the world. Two people have put a lot of time and dedication into their partnership - but many of the moments together are wonderful, but difficult to capture in pictures. Couple shootings are the perfect opportunity to capture the intimate togetherness in unforgettable photographs and snapshots.

Projects in the field of portrait photography

Portraits are not just a snapshot of the present. For me they are more. Emotions and feelings are captured by them. The uniqueness of every person becomes visible through them.

In the course of my career I have realized that the relationship between model and photographer is very important. Together we can create an atmosphere in which emotional, expressive and unique images are created.
