BONJOUR, YOU

As a photographer, my subjects of choice are dreamy elopements, epic engagements, artsy portraits, dramatic landscapes, scrumptious food and light-flooded interiors. I know, that’s a lot of different subjects! But I’m excited about too many things in this life to just settle for one thing behind my lens. Oh and yes, french is my heart language, but I’m totally fluent in English and German so, don’t you worry, we will find a way to communicate.

 

BEHIND THE LENS

You’re reading this because finding and creating beauty became my survival strategy a few years ago. I find beauty in rugged landscapes, in the alchemy between two people who are madly in love, in the fabric of a dress and in the texture of the skin on somebody’s hand, in the insecurity and vulnerability I sense when I photograph someone and they’re not quite sure how to be themselves in front of my lens but still trying. That, people, what unfolds right then, is really beautiful.

Because it’s NOT about being photogenic, it’s not about knowing how to pose or even about posing at all in the first place. It’s a moment we create together, a quest for harmony slightly beyond the comfort zone.

What I love most is photographing outdoors, in the middle of nowhere or in the middle of some epic landscapes. That’s what thrills me. So if that’s you, too, say hi and tell me all about your vision. I mean, please also get in touch if you’ve got a cosy home or a light-flooded atelier where you’d like us to photograph.

ABOUT BEAUTY

 

“Beauty is a dynamic event that occurs between you and something else. Beauty can spontaneously occur at any moment given the proper circumstances, context, or point of view. Beauty is thus an altered state of consciousness, an extraordinary moment of poetry and grace.” I’m quoting Leonard Koren, who put it more perfectly than I ever could in his book Wabi-Sabi for artists, designers, poets and philosophers

 

A FEW FACTS ABOUT ME

 

I’m rather quiet but my laughter can be really loud. Ask my housemates.

I applied for a master’s degree in photography before I knew anything about the manual setting on a DSLR camera. Then I learned.

I really enjoy being with people, but I need a LOT of time for myself.

Mediterranean and Eastern vegetarian food is my favorite.

I can’t start the day without a proper breakfast. No really. It’s impossible.

When I need to get stuff done, my last resort is old school hip-hop. That helps nearly every time.

If you want to make me happy come with me outdoors, somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Or let’s go pick wild blueberries.
