photo editing / lectures:
as a lecturer for photo editing at the University of Applied Sciences, Dortmund (2017 - 2021), photo editor for Praise Mag (2016 - 2020), replacement photo editor for Musikexpress, Rolling Stone and vogue.de (2019), photo editor and an art director for Intro magazine and Festivalguide (2012 - 2018) and as an assistant photo editor for Neon magazine (2012).
Frederike has been using her camera as a tool of empowerment since her teens. She identifies herself as a female photographer with a queer gaze and diverse approach driven by a vision of a more colorful world. Her photography is saturated, empathetic and bold. She often challenges the boundaries of the loud and the subtle, between documentary and fiction.
Graduating from design school and working as a lecturer, photo editor and art director in music and pop culture for years Frederike has a strong conceptual background. Her personal and commercial work always stays spontaneous though thanks to her sincere curiosity and enthusiasm.
She is always positive and full of energy non-stop creating an on-going stream of work. She loves to experiment with different photographic styles and methods but the result is always true to her notable signature style.
