Meet Nina

Hey, nice to have you here! I’m Nina, born in Stuttgart and currently still living in the South of Germany. I’m a sucker for nice sunsets and -rises and forever the one that gets excited when the sky is in pretty colours and tells everyone how beautiful that light is. Adventure lover, obsessed with food and good vibes – give me some good tunes, a big bonfire & great people and I’m overly happy!

How it all started..

When I was a child I was an absolute nature child and was always roaming through nature. Especially horses always fascinated me and my biggest dream was always to own a farm in the middle of nowhere.
This is also how my photography started. I saw heaps of nice horse pictures and told myself “I wanna be able to do that”. Well, my beginnings weren’t that successful but without all those blurry flower pictures I wouldn’t be where I am today. Now it’s not all about horse pictures but also more about people – friends, couples or single. There are very few things that make me as happy as I am after a successful photo session!

What else?

Another thing that really inspired me were the travel photos of my mum – taken on an old film camera. So during high school I attended a high school in South Africa for some time which turned out to be a blessing and a curse at the same time. Since then I met the greatest friends at the other side of the world and travelling became some kind of addiction. Whenever I come back from a trip I’m already thinking about where to go next.
When I’m not taking or editing pictures, you will probably find me sipping a coffee (honestly, two per day aren’t enough!), doing some kind of sports or eating some good food. After I moved out for university I don’t get the chance to ride that often but whenever possible you’ll find me on a horseback, making the horse girl in me very happy!

Wanna know more about me?

01
Mountain Love

The mountains are my happy place and the most wonderful mountain experience I had was in Lesotho. Although I’d never say no to the beach either – love swimming in the ocean!

02
Equipment

Team Canon – although my favourite lens is Sigma. Except for horses my 35mm f1.4 ART is always on my camera.

03
Sports

Somehow addicted to sports & being active and to the feeling of having a huge breakfast after morning training. Doesn’t really matter which kind of sports though.

04
Laughing

I laugh super fast about the most stupid things and am not really good at stopping. You may also experience me laughing about something that happened hours ago. Most of the times I also have to cry because I laugh so hard.

05
Songs

Addicted to music and always having a song stuck in my mind. One of my number one songs is “Without Me” by Eminem and I basically remember people with songs, all of the important persons in my life have a song I link with them.

06
Work

Apart from photography I’m studying economics & work in a big IT company.

07
Coffee & Gin Tonic

In love with Coffee & Gin Tonic – at any time in any variation. Can you imagine how happy I was when I got a drink with coffee AND Gin Tonic?!

08
South Africa

Fell in love with South Africa – went to school there for some time and now it feels like coming home every time.

When we are saying this cannot be accomplished, this cannot be done, then we are short-changing ourselves. My brain, it cannot process failure. It will not process failure. Because if I have to sit here and face myself and tell myself ‘you are a failure’, I think this is a worse, that is almost worse than death.
