Hi! I’m Cristina, a commercial photographer based in Berlin

My creative talent resides in using the eye and mind

I have been working in the photography industry for over two decades, within a variety of roles ranging from photo editor to art director. Today I balance commercial assignments with my creative work and art prints to continue refining and developing my vision while ever evolving both technically and creatively.

While I recognize technical expertise is essential in photography, I believe the aesthetics must convey an emotion or feeling that stirs something within the viewer and resonates in the soul.

Yes, I travel for shoots

I can travel for projects and do so quite frequently. I have a travel fee outside Berlin's Mitte. Hotel travel and airfare will be charged for shoots beyond a 100-km radius from the German capital.
