My name is Verena, I am 26 and I come from Berlin, Germany.
My photography journey began in 2013 when I was working and traveling in New Zealand. I met so many people with cool cameras and by the end of my stay, friends just handed their cameras straight over to me - back then I didn't realize that this was the start of a path that I would walk on for a long time.
I rarely had humans in front of my lens until a friend got pregnant in 2017 and I was fascinated by the growing bump. By coincidence, lots of my friends ended up getting pregnant that year, so I got to practice my maternity shots a lot. Once the babies were born, I photographed them too! I loved it so much that it is now one of the standard services I offer.
In March 2019, I moved from Berlin to Scotland. The breath-taking landscapes played a big role in my decision but so did the kind, friendly people. I’m currently based in Newport-on-Tay, on the east coast of Scotland, which is a lovely, small town with a welcoming atmosphere.
If often get asked where my favourite place in Scotland is, and my answer is usually, something like: “Where the clouds touch the mountain tops“. I am lucky enough to see lots of amazing landscapes through my work but, even if do visit places more than once, the Scottish weather makes sure the view is never the same.
I don’t think there’s been a single day in the past 7 years where I haven’t touched my camera or my laptop for editing. Photography has been a wonderful way of meeting so many new people and adding great photo moments to my portfolio.
Thank you to everyone that has allowed me to share the photos I took of them throughout the years. Without you, I wouldn't be where I am now.
