Oana Szekely Frankfurt People and Advertising photographers

Oana Szekely is always looking forward to taking on new challenges. She shoots people for commercials such as Claire Fischer Cosmetics as well as celebrities. Her latest artist is Namika from Frankfurt, famous for her summer hit 'Lieblingsmensch'.

Oana loves to realise her own personal photo projects and enjoys the freedom of being creative in comparison to commissioned work, as there are no strict rules governing her images. Layouts and poses are not yet defined. "When I get inspired by something or somebody, the idea is exported out of my head and becomes real."

For Oana, test shoots are like doing homework and therefore very important - when she organises them she always tries to put together a completely new team to be fully open for creative input.

"The work is much more exciting when there is no pressure to create something. The results are amazing if you just let things happen!"
