Stephan Stadie is a portrait photographer from Essen, Germany, who took up photography again in 2018 after a 25-year break. His motto is a quote from Henri Cartier-Bresson: "It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera ... they are made with the eye, the heart and the head. The result is images full of emotion and passion.
As a photographer, Stephan is curious and likes to try new things. His goal is to create unique images that give the viewer a sense of magic. To achieve this, he thinks about alternative approaches to get an excellent result.
But it is not just about taking beautiful pictures, it is about the moment between the pictures. A sudden turn or a little laugh can make a moment so special and bring any photo to life. It's those moments that often create the best images of the shoot - and that's what he loves about photography!
Stephan's images can undoubtedly be described as sensual. Nevertheless, he takes the position: "Attractiveness without nudity - Why head cinema is more exciting". Sensuality does not always have to go hand in hand with bare skin. Stephan is of the opinion that women and men can be very attractive even when clothed. He sees great potential here, especially in photography.
He says: "I think it's much more exciting when you, as a viewer, can form your own picture in your head and not everything is obviously shown. Because the mental cinema is often much more intense than the bare facts. How do you see it?"
