Klaus Mellenthin Photographer

About

 

I am a freelance photographer based in Berlin. My main focus is portraiture.

Mostly, I take pictures of prominent members of the business community and contemporary personalities, CEOs, entrepreneurs, workers, models, politicians, musicians, celebrities, employees, actors, as well as landscapes.

When it comes to promotional campaigns and reports I can act as a visual storyteller at both local and world-wide level.

For several years I have been involved in charity projects, such as the “St. Moses Children Care Center” in Uganda. I travelled to Burkina Faso, Brazil and Vietnam for the aid organization MISEREOR.

Since 2018 I have been a member of the board of the BFF (Independent Photographers and Film-Makers Association), of which I have been a member since 2010. In 2012 I became a full member of the UK-based Association of Photographers (AOP). 

Photography means to me much more than the mere documentation of reality and is, without doubt, more challenging than the fast and ephemeral world of Instagram. For me meeting different types of people and discovering unknown places has always been exciting. What thrills me is the great variety of options I experience in my job, be it in projects, personalities, attitudes and backgrounds.
