Berlin  –  Germany

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 heart, 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 film industry, career choice camerawoman. 10 years as a clapper loader, focus puller and operator, more than 50 German and international movie 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. All my heart goes into artist portraiture or reportages on sustainable topics. Alternative concepts of living interest me in a special way. I also serve the field of business & corporate photography and watch people with my camera at big corporate events. My pictures have been published in magazines like ‘The Wall Street Journal’ and ‘Lufthansa Magazin’.
