Detlev Bock

I am a passionate amateur photographer and live in Baden-Württemberg, just a stone's throw from the French border.

I discovered my passion for photography in 2011 in Asia, where I lived for 5 years for professional reasons. I quickly realized that this time was a "once in a lifetime" event that I absolutely had to capture in pictures.

After initially focusing on travel photography, people photography quickly became my focus; more specifically, what I would call "soulful" people photography.

I've been lucky enough to work with some really great photographers over the years, from whom I've been able to learn a lot. Among other things, that people photography consists of far more than just the technical aspects and that striving for technically perfect images can nip the desired emotional effect in the bud.
It is therefore much more important to me to create a relaxed, informal atmosphere when photographing, in which my model feels comfortable and is thereby perhaps willing to reveal a little of herself.

If I can do that, there's a chance to get pictures that are special and that you'll want to look at again and again.
