Christian Brandes Hamburg - Munich Lifestyle and Fashion Photographers & DOPs

"Ever since my teenage years, I have wanted to become a photographer. After my apprenticeship, I moved to Hamburg to start assisting Bernd Opitz. During the next five years, I was not only fortunate enough to work in incredible places with talented and inspiring people, I also discovered my love for film making.

By 2015, the opportunity arose to start working as a freelance photographer and cinematographer. To me, photography is the perfect way of living my dream, creating my visions, and making my goals reality, all while using the coolest gadgets.

I would describe my imagery as natural, authentic, and detailed. Currently, I am based between Hamburg and Munich with my family, but missing Vancouver and the light of Los Angeles.
