Andrea was born in the Lower Rhine Area in Germany.
During her studies of Social Sciences in Wuppertal she discovered her passion for photography.
As she was quickly known in the scene, she was offered an apprenticementship in a well known advertising agency in Wuppertal.
The following years she assisted prominent photographers in the US and Europe.
In 1997 she commenced her career as freelance photographer based in Hamburg.
Since then she has been working very successfully in various genres such as advertising, arts, documentary and editorials.
Her emphasis lies in capturing authenticity and emotions. Logging staged scenes by camera are no contradiction to this.
During a lot of shootings in the last years Andrea developed a warm significant empathy for seniors. Combined with her ability to motivate and stage them the results were astonishing.
„I just love what I do“ says Andrea „ to roam all these different spheres meeting all these fascinating varieties of people makes me grateful“
„My aim is to combine my passion with the striving for ultimate perfection resulting in the creation of pictures telling comprehensive stories“
