I love to be in the background for the reportage style, to do justice to your passion and the handcrafting process of your business, infused with my aesthetic approach and style. When it comes to my love for your products or food or drink setting, I love to play and achieve the perfect styling perception, set the pillars with the right lighting gear and the perfect backdrop. To visually narrate the profound story of the product being photographed.
To discover other people’s talents and their incredible worlds is a treasured journey.
I love demonstrating your magic, the love you pour into your process and portray all of it in conjunction with your business purpose, aesthetic wishes and needs and making your customers crave for your craft.
It is all about unearthing what makes your heart tick, what sparks your vision, watching your work being created;
all of it is what inspires me to photograph your artistry.
When capturing your business portraits that will be either in classic style with a clean background, yet infused with my style, in your “natural” surroundings while you work at your workplace, with all of your authentic charm, featuring your tools or means of craft, or within a more creative and artistic approach - ideal for creative businesses - and lastly, the business portrayal can be portraits of your employees. We will continuously communicate, create a moodboard and break down your vision - how you want to be shown by building a concept and tailoring everything to match your business needs, marketing strategy and brand statement.
In the case of reportage, the process with communication and working on the concept is the same only the capturing is different. I will observe and capture the process and work ambience and how your products are made, how every detail is woven with diligence and love. For example, a chief who is cooking in the kitchen preparing secret spices, a goldsmith who is making jewelry, etc. I will visually tell the story of your Mastercraft, passion and skill. Because the details complete the story, I will always capture them besides the overall impression of how the product is made. To elevate the whole aesthetic I will furthermore seek out interesting light, reflections or framing to add another layer to your beautiful work.
This approach channels the product as the star of the portrayal, as the main focal point. That may be still life works like jewellery, food, products like wine, etc. It is all about portraying its final artistry and the statement as a branded piece. Naturally, besides the usual moodboard and working on the concept, if you desire I can also style, arrange and add all the details, different surfaces or backgrounds to create the best version of its essence. Of course, all of that will be done with close consideration of your marketing strategy and previously envisioned concept together.
"After releasing the new visuals we got a lot of positive feedback from various customers who all have been thrilled."
Simone has accompanied us since some years now and documents our work at different stages. She is always able to catch special moments while acting more in the background so that we often did not even notice being photographed. Her photographs are just wonderful and highly professional. After releasing the new visuals we got a lot of positive feedback from various customers who all have been thrilled. We even could see some direct sales coming from new customers, finding us because of her pictures. Working with her is very professional and she is always flexible regarding our wishes and needs without compromising on her specific style.
"Simone always manages to deliver great photographs. Focus on point, natural and aesthetic."
We are a small jewelry brand located in Nuremberg and already had a couple of shootings with Simone. Shooting jewelry is not an easy task. The pieces are relatively small, and the focus has to be exactly right, yet you also want to catch a little bit of the surroundings for example the expression of the model. Simone always manages to deliver great photographs. Focus on point, natural and aesthetic. Shooting days with her are fun and the communication before and during is always a pleasure. We truly hope that we can soon book her again because we need a ton of new photos.
