Saskia Uppenkamp | Photographer
I am Saskia, born in ’81, happy in Berlin since 2004, except during the winter. Then I’m drawn to warm places around the world. Since my 18th birthday vegetarian by conviction, I love iced latte with oat milk and, of course, photography. I have not been taking pictures since I was in kindergarten. Moving images fascinated me at first. After graduating from high school, first stop movie industry, career choice camerawoman. 10 years as focus puller and operator, more than 50 German and international film and advertising productions.
At the age of 30 I knew I’ve had enough of the film camera for now, I needed a new challenge: I studied photography at the ‘Neue Schule für Fotografie’ in Berlin, graduating in 2014 under the guidance of Eva Bertram.
I was able to gain practical experience as assistant to the photographers Jan von Holleben and Benno Kraehahn.
Since 2014 I have been working as a freelance photographer in the fields of portrait & reportage. Always on the search for people with stories. I love to portray artists or photograph reports on sustainable topics, but I also serve the field of business & corporate photography or watch people with my camera at big events.
My pictures have been published in magazines like ‘The Wall Street Journal’ and ‘Lufthansa Magazin’.
