Lara at Botanischer Garten | Hamburg

That was awesome! But let’s get started right at the beginning…

Alice at MS Artville | Hamburg

Once a year, there’s a small but growing festival in the outskirts of Hamburg: The MS Dockville festival. Located outside of Wilhelmsburg using a wide area of wild space it’s not only a music festival for one weekend, […]

Sofie at Falkensteiner Ufer | Hamburg

Asja at Hetlinger Schanze | Hamburg

We survived!

That may describe our shooting best. It all started that it took us double the time to get to the location, thanks to some traffic jam. Two hours later a ship came in that fast that its wave flooded […]

Merle at Stiftung Hamburg Maritim | Hamburg
