Our mission is to empower our community by offering them a platform to get discovered, while giving brands access to the most powerful creative imagery worldwide.
KATE PHELLINI – EyeEm’s newest Photographer of The Year, Kate uses visual language to communicate and tell stories, her main tools are photography, graphic design and blues dancing. She works mainly as a portrait or art photographer, often finding herself in the fashion sphere.
Having left her hometown of Odesa, Ukraine with promising career as a diplomat, Kate dedicated her time to photography and continues to work with major brands and publications including Vogue, Schwarzkopf & Vodafone. Aside from working with global brands, she is also part of the core team of La Boussole, the first aesthetic printed magazine in Ukraine and was recently titled EyeEm Ambassador as part of The 2019 EyeEm Awards at Berlin Photo Week after.
KONRAD LANGER – With a background in social sciences and journalism Konrad prefers to think of himself not as a photographer but rather as a city explorer who happens to use photography.
Not only does he run his very successful @konaction account, but also curated and managed the accounts of @visit_berlin and @samsungmobile_de. His unique visual style has led him to work with numerous global brands.
He is in a never-ending search to capture distinctive locations in cities all over the world, his own visual style consists in urban minimalistic images with bold colours and contrasts, often combining architectural perspectives with human elements.
LUCIA PETSCHNIG – Lucia prefers to define what she does as “storytelling” rather than simply photography. She uses her skills as a storyteller to visualize words, images and videos that are inspired by personal stories to create and promote a special selection of brands or projects.
Not only was she a finalist at the International Adobe Design Achievement Awards in 2016, but also the first African ever presented the title.
She was also awarded the Young Ones Portfolio Award finalist for a project titled “Pin-up Girls in the 21st Century” for creative
excellence with her fashion and commercial photography portfolio by the One Club for Creativity in New-York.
MARCEL WIEST & JACK SOUNDARARAJAN –
Marcel uses photography to show the world to others through his eyes. He bought his first camera 3 years ago during a backpack trip which lasted for 7 months. That’s when he discovered his love for photography and started shooting on a daily basis. On his return, Marcel started working as a photographer for different brands and studios to improve his skills. He went from buying his first camera to being sponsored by Canon, Samsung and working with multiple global brands in less than 3 years and developing an outstanding portfolio that focuses on Architecture, Cities, Landscapes and Portraits.
Jack grew up in India, sleeping on a terrace watching the stars at night. He likes to use his photography to remind everyone about to appreciate the sunrise, sunset and all the simple, yet beautiful, moments that pass us by in the everyday chaos of work and stressful city life. He started getting into photography because of his love for birds, but soon started focusing more on Architecture and Urban Landscapes. What started as a hobby has now growninto a big family of over 20’000 people through his Instagram account and got him sponsored by Canon. He has been growing on social media at an incredible speed and working with enormous brands while still working as a full-time mechanical design engineer.
