Vivienne is a true Hamburg native and has been taking photographs for almost 5 years. Back then, she bought a camera just for fun and now specializes in portraits, brands and events.
Her pictures are characterized by a warm, natural look, which is particularly evident in outdoor shoots. The focus here is also on capturing emotions and a lot of movement.
“The best images are always created in motion, as it doesn’t look so rigid and placed.”
With her open manner, she creates a feel-good atmosphere during the shootings, which is not only noticeable in front of the camera, but also in the finished pictures. Vivienne shoots with Voigtländer either on her Sony A7IV, or on the Fujifilm X-T5.

Spending his childhood in the 90s, Vinzenz noticed his ever-growing love for photography. He began with his first attempts at street photography, continued with numerous weddings and is currently working in the field of lifestyle and portrait photography, mostly using natural light. .. His credo for shoots is: “Be fully interested in the person you’re shooting and listen. Only then should you start taking photos.”
He likes to drift through the streets of foreign cities and is currently writing his first novel. He was born in Berlin in 1989 and has lived there ever since. If you’re looking for good photo spots, you’ve come to the right place.
He really enjoys using the Voigtländer lenses on his Leica M10 – his favorite lens at the moment is the 35mm f/1.2 Nokton III: “With this focal length, I cover everything I want to photograph – it’s a fantastic all-rounder.”
“Life often forces us down on the floor, but you can decide for yourself whether to stay down or get up again!”
That’s how Marco got into photography. After a heavy blow of fate, the camera helped him to get back on his feet and find his passion. Today, he loves capturing people and their emotions. He is not restricted to a specific area. He simply lets his creativity run free and so, in addition to artists and portraits, he also photographs weddings and freelance projects that simply inspire him. Marco touches people with his unmistakable photos, his style, but above all with his person and his story. Because he captures moments with his camera that tell a story, that are “raw”, that touch. Moments that are not actually visible to the eye. For many, Marco is a role model because he has developed his talent from a very dark time and he believes this gives HOPE
