Headshots: Jane Chirwa.

Ich fotografiere ja sehr viele Menschen, und in den allermeisten Fällen bin ich zumindest kurzzeitig ein bisschen verliebt in sie, da ich sie in so kurzer Zeit so intensiv kennenlerne. Daraus sind schon viele enge Freundschaften entstanden und ich bin immer wieder geflasht und glücklich wenn ich von einem Porträtshooting komme. Ich hasse es, am Computer Bilder auszuwählen und zu bearbeiten, aber ich liebe es, unterwegs zu sein und diese Bilder entstehen zu lassen.   Vor ein paar Wochen, an einem der ersten sonnigen Tage des Jahres, habe ich die ganz zauberhafte Schauspielerin >>Jane Chirwa<< auf dem Tempelhofer Feld in …

The Geekettes.

In February I met up with Jess Erickson and Denise Philipp – the fabulous founders of the amazing >>Geekettes<< movement to connect women in tech – to take their >>portrait<<. They have been super successful in Berlin and Germany and are now >>expanding<< the Geekettes all over the world. Cheers girls, and congratulations!   Photo: Carolin Weinkopf

Max Mauff.

I met >>Max Mauff<< at the film set of “In der Überzahl” (for which he won the Max Ophüls film prize for up and coming actor this spring) along with the wonderful >>Ulrich Thomsen<< and a great team in Brandenburg in winter 2011/12.   A few weeks ago Max and I met up and went on a walk through Kreuzberg’s backyards and I snapped a few pictures. His odd beauty is remarkable and I think it was caught very well in these particular two photographs.   Photos: Carolin Weinkopf

Bea Brocks.

A few months ago when I was heavily pregnant with mini-me (seems like years ago, actually…), I took photos of my friend and stunning actress >>Bea Brocks<< for her portfolio. Never got to show these until now, so here they are.   All photos: Carolin Weinkopf

Elisabeth Rank.

Lisa and I went to university together (and this was years ago, oh my…). She’s always been one of those promising girls from journalism classes, with a >>saucy writing<< and the right portion of self-confidence to >>move mountains<<. Almost two years ago, Lisa wrote her >>debut novel for Suhrkamp<<, now she’s in the final throes of her new book for Berlin Verlag and a senior creative at one of Berlin’s cool media agencies as well.   I shot Lisa’s official author portrait a few weeks ago while drinking purple lemonade, spilling coffee on the table and having great conversations. Such …

Sina Martens.

After shouting for the last chance of portraits before my maternity leave, a bunch of people contacted me for photos. >>This lovely young lady<< was one of my favourites, so kind, so unpretentious and sure so pretty. I’m still pumped of how much Sina Martens loved the shoot and the outcome and can’t wait to shoot portraits again with mini-me out here in the world.   All photos: Carolin Weinkopf

Kat.

Taking photos of friends when they do not pay attention has always been my favourite thing to do. I’m so lucky I’ve got such beautiful friends. This is Kat.   Photo: Carolin Weinkopf

Klara Manzel.

Before leaving for my New York City Trip I spent a whole rainy afternoon with this lovely young lady. The tomato girl is still my favourite picture of actress Klara Manzel, but not the only one I fell in love with.   All photos: Carolin Weinkopf

Alice Dwyer.

A couple of days ago I met actress Alice Dwyer to go on a photographic walk through Kreuzberg. Unfortunately, it was so f*§%/&)”ing cold, we couldn’t really stay outside for more than a few minutes. Meeting this impressive young lady is always a pleasure, and I hope we can do this again when it’s a bit more comfortable outside. Bewitched by blue eyes!   All photos: Carolin Weinkopf
