"Always close up and yet infinitely distant" that’s how I would depict the challenging adventure of photography.

I have been working as a freelance photographer with a lot of passion since 2007, so I have had a great many opportunities to bring in valuable experience from my work with the press and with advertising agencies.

I specialize in photography for the upscale event sector, covering people, architecture, national and international conferences as well as sports events – all the way from preliminary rounds to the finals, as it were.

My clients include national and international newspapers, weekly and monthly magazines, as well as prestigious PR and advertising agencies.

Tailored to my customers’ desires, it is my continuous endeavour to render technically flawless pics, without ever forgoing the artistic accent. It takes both my own creative input and high flexibility to meet the highest standards and to deliver top quality.

What is more, photography is fun, indeed. Along the lines of ’You can only be a dab hand at something if you really like doing it’, I will never lose the fun and joy of shooting pics.

"To take a photograph is to align the head, the eye and the heart. It is a way of life"
(Henry Cartier-Bresson, French photographer, 1908 – 2004)


I look forward to your requests and to our joint projects.

Sincerely yours

Leo Hagen
