What you'll do

Want to be a secret service agent on a wicked mission in Berlin's underground? A mad scientist in Frankenstein's laboratories? I will take you into the heart of Berlin to hidden places. Together we create an awesome personal portrait of you. You get to be the star of your own cinematic one-frame-blockbuster and we will create a thrilling, unforgettable memory of your stay in Berlin.

We will have a welcome drink, where I get to know you and your dreams and passions! Then we will plan our "movie poster portrait" action and head off to a secret place that fits with your ideas. These are:
+ underground bars (alien props/ victorian furniture)
+ lost places (old buildings filled with mechanical instruments)
+ a museum looking like Frankensteins laboratory
+ historic buildings from 1850-1900
+ a monster laboratory
+ parks with hidden art gems
+ many more! Hit me up with your photo idea first!

We'll go via public transport to the location and shoot 1-2 hours in a special place to create one amazing portrait.
I will guide you through the process and you'll get a retouched image afterwards.

We'll have fun and create a Berlin-ish portrait you can brag about. Be your own movie star! ;-)

I am Christina, a world traveller, photography artist and wild at heart! Since I became a photographer and movie set designer five years ago, I've been exploring cities, weird and hidden places and cinematic stories. It became my inevitable passion to stage and create stories around people and visualize them in detailed images. Living for 5 years in Berlin gave me the chance to explore many hidden gems: old buildings, laboratories, underground bars, weird private collections that become now settings for awesome cinematic portraits!

It was such a transformational experience with Christina to discover myself through photography. In just one session, we tried out four characters which I found out to display four different facets of myself: Curious, cheerful, powerful and feminine. Through this Airbnb experience, it exceeded my expectation for my trip in Berlin very much! Christina is absolutely talented and she is an ideal creative director to collaborate with.

I really enjoyed my photo experience with Christina. She was very pleasant, patient and easy to work with. She has brilliant ideas and found the best locations for the theme we were aiming for. She was very prompt in answering questions and communicated well prior to the shoot. If you're looking for something a little different Christina is the one.

It was so much fun with Christina! I’ve got this shoot recommended by a friend and it is totally worth it!! I am a huge fan of SciFi and we decided to give this shoot an overall Sci-Fi theme. Since I dyed my hair orange recently, we wanted to feature that: so we decided I become the Character Leeloo from the movie „the Fifth Element“ :D She even had a bodysuit that fit me well. We went to an abandoned parking lot and a playground (and used the slide there), a lot of metal and the flashes that Christina brought make the light really cool! Usually I am a bit shy in front of the camera but Christina made me feel really good and we had a lot of fun. She gave me directions very well and the result really looks like from a movie… I am so happy!! Thanks Christina! :D

„I heard from Christina through a friend and just had to try it! It was so much fun! She brought in her own ideas to help me out and we did an „The fifth Element“ inspired shoot, because I dyed my hair recently orange. :D I brought a cheap ebay metal-body suit and we went to a parking lot and a playground and used the metal parts there. The flashes make it for sure look like from a sci-fi movie and I’m super happy with the results. She makes one feel super comfortable in front of the camera and we had quite a laugh :)“
