Main focus: Photo reportage and portrait photography

Everybody has one’s passions. That is why Hanna Witte specialized on the subjects photo reportage and portrait photography with her photographic work. Here her main focus is on company portraits, people photography, social issues and yoga. Her pictures stand for emotion and humanity. No matter wether it is a large corporation or a family business: Hanna Witte captures with her photo reportage the atmosphere of a company, the unique selling point of a product or the uniqueness of a person and images the special aspect. It is important to her that the jointly created pictures are not replaceable or staged but natural and close.

This is how I work

Preliminary

During a detailed preliminary I get to know you and your ideas for your business photos. Then I visit the location and develop a concept – if desired shooting schedules, too. For each portrait photo series or photo reportage it is important to define a consistent imagery, which we develop together.

Imagery

Individually coordinated light and colour composition goes without saying. In general my photographic style stands for a human, emotional and close imagery. My pictures are soft, warm and light. Effect photography is completely beyond me.

Photo Shooting

Next I come to your business to take the pictures for the photo reportage. During the last ten years of my job as a photographer in the field of business photography I gained a lot of experience working with people. People, who mostly do not have a professional experience in front of the camera. It is about featuring employees and people the way they are. In their own beauty, with their own personality. I take away their shyness in front of the camera and take the pictures so that they are happy with the result.

I look forward to meeting you

I look forward to your first contact! You are not a company? I also like to take photos of individuals: I already offer small portrait shootings from 450,00 Euro up.

Customer comments

DJ Markus Rosenbaum:

„Vor meinem Fotoshooting mit Hanna war ich ganz schön aufgeregt, ist ja als Normalo eine ungewohnte Situation. Hanna hatte die Situation aber als echter Profi von Minute eins an im Griff. Persönlich, menschlich und professionell – genau so wie man es sich als Kunde wünscht. Zusätzlich kannte sie Spots für die Aufnahmen, auf die ich im Leben nicht gekommen wäre. Ein rundum tolles Erlebnis und die Ergebnisse haben mich absolut begeistert. Vielen Dank, liebe Hanna “

Alexandra Harfield, Yoga Lehrerin, Creative Showdirection & Choreography:

“Even though I have been working in the event industry for most of my life, I have never really been a huge fan of Photoshoots. It is always a blessing for me to work with a Photographer who has the ability to make you feel comfortable and at ease, so that the right moments can be captured. Hanna is definitely one of them. She has a great eye and a wonderful way to bring across what she needs from you. We had a fabulous session with so many great shots, it was hard to choose. 🙂 Thank you so much Hanna – immer wieder gern mit Dir!”

Stephanie Beivers, Inhaberin Leo-Kinderevents:

“Hanna hat die neuen Imagefotos für unsere Kinder-Eventagentur geschossen. Hierfür musste sie sieben Kids bändigen, die ihr alle mit viel Spaß den ganzen Tag durch das Shooting gefolgt sind. Die Ergebnisse sind super schön, sehr natürlich und begeistern uns und unsere Kunden sehr. Vielen Dank hierfür liebe Hanna.”

Nadine Villmann, Villmann I Kommunikation:

“Hanna Witte realized photo shootings for a number of my clients. Wether business photography, portrait photography or photo reportage: The aspirations and requirements could not be more different and every time she managed to capture exactly what we wanted to express. Her calm, uncomplicated nature and her professional foresight are a real bonus at the shootings. At the same time she always has exactly the clients‘ requirements in mind. In the end the pictures not only precisely tell the story, the client wanted to convey, but they also tell it in a way, that the viewer of the photos is thrilled by it.”

Elisa Büchner, Gastgeberin Stappen Düsseldorf-Oberkassel:

„Bilder sagen mehr als 1000 Worte. Jedes Einzelne von Hanna ist eine Geschichte. Viele gemeinsame Projekte, immer beste Ausführungen, wir freuen uns auf alles Weitere in der Zukunft“.

Anna Ullrich-Cattien, Inhaberin THE BLOKE:

“Wenn Hanna fotografiert, tritt die Kamera in den Hintergrund. In dieser entspannten Atmosphäre schafft sie Bilder, auf denen sie mich und meine Arbeit perfekt einfängt.”

Dr. Pirkko Schuppan:

“Wir haben Hanna zufällig kennengelernt – das war vor fast 10 Jahren! Seitdem begleitet sie mich sowohl privat als auch beruflich. Dabei schafft sie es irgendwie immer, besondere Stimmungen & Momente einzufangen. Beruflich treffen wir uns regelmäßig und ich bin immer wieder überrascht, wie viel Hanna sieht und wie es ihr gelingt, wirklich besondere Bilder sehr professionell & unkompliziert zu erzeugen. Wir sind alle sehr sehr große Fans und können Hanna, die jedem Bild ihre besondere Note gibt, nur weiterempfehlen!”

Carmen Stappen, Gastgeberin Gasthaus Stappen:

“Seit einigen Jahren werden wir durch Hanna Witte photographisch begleitet – Portraits, Food-Fotografie, Stimmungsbilder aus den Restaurants und Hotels – Hanna begleitet uns in allen Lebenslagen. Seriös und witzig, darstellend und Atmosphäre vermittelnd – ihre Fotos sind großartig!”

Dr. Anna Weber, BabyOne:

“Hanna accompanies our important family moments for a few years now. She took our wedding pictures as well as the birth photos of our children. When we were looking for a photographer for our corporate portrait, it immediately became clear to me, that Hanna was the right one. Hanna dipped into our company completely unagitatedly, with a lot of empathy and patience and made authentic, clear and emotional photos, which greatly represent our family business. With a lot of her own ideas for composition and image design and a consistent imagery Hanna not only takes pictures  but tells a story with them. Everyone of us is absolutely excited and looks forward to the next projects.”
