Consulting for Styling & Digital Operator

I’ve worked in all aspects of the fashion industry: as a model, a stylist, make-up artist, art director, producer and consultant for a variety of studios and brands in Germany and France. My passion for fashion has taken me to each continent professionally. I want to incorporate my experience and the various cultural influences I have encountered in my work into my activities as YAKEU. I’m constantly on the lookout for inspiration and new challenges together with my team.

Consulting und Controlling

Fashion is more than an art form for me. It’s inspiring and, at the same time, it’s also commercial. I learned that from my roots, since I come from a family of artists and studied economics. I brought my love for light and clarity with me to Hamburg from my home in Reykjavík. That’s evident in our open, light-flooded studio. Quality and simplicity are important to me. I keep the workflow at YAKEU as simple and transparent as possible.

Studio & Marketing Manager

I studied Marketing in Hamburg. After I completed my Bachelor’s degree, I started working in e-commerce, where I managed a lot of web shops. As the Studio Manager at YAKEU, I manage the entire process chain. I’m always looking for ways to make the processes even faster and more efficient.

“For me, service means always offering more than is expected.”

As an international photo studio with French-African and Icelandic backgrounds, we have offices in Marseilles and Reykjavík in addition to our headquarters in Hamburg. We provide services for our customers in France and Scandinavia in particular from these two port cities.
That allows us to be on site for you quickly when needed and helps us manage out international network. The team at YAKEU is made up of consultants, photographers, stylists, hair make‐up artists, model bookers, photo editors and texters.
We hold our work and ourselves to high standards. With plenty of creativity and more than 15 years of experience in the industry, we aim to bring art more closely into fashion photography once more.
