Cabo Verde, Landscapes, Nature, People 2018, Dirk Heurich

I am a german photographer based in Hamburg. I like to shoot portraits most. As a lot of people seem to like my landscapes and my special view on people and places, I decided to go public with my work.

I see a lot of beauty in life. People, nature, landscapes – even trash can be beautiful. And I find it beautiful the way it is. I do not need to overexaggerate. Today a lot of people tend to think, that what is there, is not enough. Everything is pimped up. More colour, more shine, more perfection.

I do not follow that path. I try to show the world the way I am seeing it. Full of beauty, sometimes poetic, often ironic
– and always unique.


I travel a lot and have my camera with me all the time. I do not care about sand, dust, sun, water, weird people … That gives me the opportunity to shoot very special moments.


Sometimes I see things differently. First it is just an idea and then suddenly a photo becomes a work of art because it is more than a picture.
It transports an idea.


You like my photos? Cool! Buy selected pictures as high-quality framed art prints. In case you do not find your favourite picture in the shop, tell me!


You want a personal portrait? Someone who accompanies you and documents an event? You can book me on an hourly or daily basis.

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place …

I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

Elliott Erwitt
