Christian Thomas Berlin photographers

Christian Thomas is based in his hometown of Berlin, from where he has worked professionally for over 20 years. He regularly travels around the world, shooting in locations as diverse as Seville and Los Angeles.

He focuses mainly on portraiture, which he succinctly describes as "the attempt to capture people how they really are." Instead of generating a concept in advance, Christian feels most comfortable working in the moment, letting the small realities of life speak through his imagery as a shoot unfolds. Although he enjoys studio work he prefers shooting on location where he can create a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere on set.

When not working on portraits, Christian concentrates on people and car photography, producing work for agencies that furthers his natural, flexible and fresh approach.

Clients include AmExMagazin, AirBerlin, BVG, Citroën, IMG, MAN, Marriott, Peugeot, Steigenberger, Vattenfall and Visa, amongst others. Over the years he has curated several highly acclaimed exhibitions of his work and also won the Canon Professional Photo Award.
