About me

About me

About me, Stefan Simonsen

I'm a Hannover (Germany) based photo journalist and allrounder recovering over 20 years of experience in photography, working for media and business clients across the country.

Six years of working as a freelance photographer for a major german press agency, one year as a staff photographer for a main newspaper and many years in the media business as a news-cameraman, local journalist (photographing / writing) and a radio reporter let me react quickly and solve problems pragmatically with a sense of humor now.

These experiences allowing me to provide my clients with own ideas, an eye for detail and reliable delivery too.

I love my job! Holding a camera in my hands makes me braver, more adventurous and drives me to strive for perfection.

This enthusiasm for photography is infectious to those in front of my lens and even helps people to shine who may be unexperienced and shy.

My deep love of life is reflected by the many volunteer projects I've done or worked for over the last decade (Medic, First Aid Instructor, Youth Leader).

Therefore NGOs and relief organizations with a small budget are extremely welcome to enquire!
