Berlin Portrait Photographer

About

Hi! I'm a free-lance portrait photographer born in Vienna, Austria, and currently based in Berlin, Germany. My background is in literature, theatre and film, so my photography is naturally informed by these interests.

I'm open for bookings, assignments and collaborations world-wide.
