After graduating from high school, Julia Marie Werner first went abroad. In France she discovered her love for photography. After her apprenticeship as a photographer in the René Staud Sudios in Leonberg, she worked as a freelance photo assistant from 2007 to 2012. Before she settled down as a photo designer in Hamburg, she lived in Cape Town for a few months.
Her commercial portfolio includes large, well-known clients such as VW and Lufthansa, NGOs. But also smaller magazines and others such as „Zeit“ or „Impulse“.
Although originating from automotive photography, she is vastly interested in documenting - if it's people or animals in their surroundings and setting them in scene.
