Being an outstanding photographer with a superlative skill-set is a given at the top levels of today’s competitive world of image-makers. But to make a campaign truly shine from concept to completion—and do it authentically from a female POV—is another point of distinction that sets Dorit Thies apart.

Her latest cover for Elle magazine featuring Maye Musk is a perfect example, where she created a compelling visual narrative with intimate close-ups and energetic and architecturally futuristic imagery that is equal parts tribute and memorable storytelling of a fashion icon. For her Amazing magazine cover story image of Kate Mara, Dorit captured the actress in Japanese haute couture, zoomed-in on a black and white studio wall.

These are but a few examples from Dorit’s extensive client list that includes global fashion and beauty brands, including Estée Lauder, Elle, Glamglow, Sephora, New Beauty Magazine and Glamour Magazine among others.

Her photos have also been displayed in galleries across the globe. Whether it’s a quiet studio space or on a futuristic location, Dorit prides herself on elevating people and brands with an empowering vision, inspiring her subjects to shine with confidence and exceeding clients’ expectations.
