Mayhem # 307977
'oova' is the English pronunciation of my German name.
I am a professional photographer with a professional studio in the western suburbs.
I am available for hire in fashion, portrait, and products.
The reason I am on Model Mayhem is to explore creative ideas together with models, make-up artist and stylist. I truly enjoy the process of collaborations with the people I photograph and work with. I am interested in creative minds.
Since November 2011 I have to deal with my health. I am now partially blind, but I see enough to photograph. All my images I create from 2012 until today are with this condition.
"You're a lovely person and I feel so fortunate
to have these opportunities to make art together."

"I think you are a professional and a perfectionist when it comes to capturing the photo that brings to life the image you have in your mind, and that is a result of years of experience and is no doubt the reason that you are so successful and highly regarded today. I think that it is amazing how you are able to fine tune all the subtle details in lighting and positioning and given your recent health scare, you have managed to overcome what many would consider a career ender into a beautiful story of overcoming obstacles no matter what, and come out with one of the most beautiful photos I have ever had shot of me! It was a pleasure and an honor getting to meet you, know you and work with you. I am so grateful for that opportunity!"
