Håggard Photography

Since 2007 I have been intensively involved in professional travel, architecture and landscape photography, which led me to found my project "Håggard Photography" in 2010. Since then, I have mainly focused on photographing hotels, restaurants and event venues in the field of architecture, serving various print and online media and dedicating my assignments to documentary photography in the industrial and construction sectors as well as at events, trade fairs and company meetings.

Achievements
In addition to the photo assignments, I try to work on my freelance photo series and spend as much time as possible in different countries. Selected series from Scandinavia, the United Arab Emirates, Spain, Japan and Venice have already been presented in renowned national and international photo magazines. My work has been honored with the Sony World Photography Award, Landscape category, the International Photography Award, the Monochrome Award and the German Photography Award as Photographer of the Year. In addition to being shortlisted for the Felix Schoeller Photo Award, I was a finalist and contender for the European Professional Photographer of the Year Award and was nominated for the B&W Spider Awards and the International Color Awards, among others.

Photo tours, workshops and seminars
Over the past 10 years, I have been able to share my way of photography with photo enthusiasts, beginners, advanced hobby photographers and even professional photographers during my photo workshops and 1:1 trainings. It is especially the numerous, detailed experiences and the accumulated knowledge in the field of photography that I would like to share with curious, motivated photo fans. Every year I run around 30 - 35 fully booked photography courses in different parts of the world, for example in my home town of Berlin, on our rugged coasts on the islands of Sylt and Rügen, or in remote Japan, to mention just a small selection of destinations. To ensure a varied course program, I try to add a new photo workshop to the existing offer every year.
The focus of my photo workshops is primarily on my personal path from developing a fleeting image idea and an effective image composition, to the necessary photographic equipment and technical details that are optimally tailored to personal requirements, to the perfect photo for the wall that will captivate and inspire future viewers. My task is to provide individual support to all participants at eye level and to encourage them through easy-to-understand explanations and processes in order to continuously expand their photographic knowledge in the areas of minimalist architecture and landscape photography with all its creative niches.

Other projects
As part of my professional journey, I have established myself not only as a photographer and course instructor, but also as the author of two photography reference books in which I share my expertise and passion for photography. The books, now in their third edition, not only reflect my enthusiasm for art and photography, but also offer practical insights, guidance and tips for aspiring and advanced photographers.
Out of conviction, I have also been under contract as a co-photographer and brand ambassador for the renowned filter manufacturer Haida since 2019 and expanded the Samyang community as a brand ambassador between 2020 / 2021.
