Best family photographer
What an incredible news, I still can't believe it! I am just speechless, super grateful and incredibly proud. I am the PHOTOGRAPHER & STORYTELLER OF THE YEAR 2021 of This is Reportage Family and therefore awarded as their best family photographer of the year.
This is Reportage Family is an organization of documentary family photographers that already includes over 300 photographers from around the world.
It really leaves me speechless when I look at all my colleagues who show such great work and inspire me to take even better photos.
Somehow it feels strange for me to write about such awards. But I participated for a very specific reason: as you may have noticed, I NEVER show the children's faces, neither on social media nor anywhere else on the internet to protect the children and their privacy rights. Here you can read more about it...
With my participation I wanted to show that it is not necessary to show the faces of the children to be successful as a family and children photographer and even to be awarded as the best family photographer worldwide. I wanted to raise awareness and inspire as many other photographers as possible to take more faceless photos. If you need help with this, feel free to contact me for a One-on-One mentoring.
I would also like to take this opportunity all my colleagues a big congratulations, it's so nice to see how much documentary family photography has grown in the last year.
21 of my photos won a Reportage Award in 2021 and 13 of my photo series won a Family Story Award:
