Mag.(FH) Sascha van der Werf

Born in a beautiful place south of Austria in Wolfsberg, I can be found wandering with a camera in hand, capturing quiet, touching moments and documenting life. Before exploring and capturing life I was a senior sales and marketing leader for well known major multinationals. As I shoot I also learn a lot about myself, what I value and love and how I see the world: 
See the beauty in every moment.

I can capture a moment that counts

Each individual, no matter their culture or background has a story to tell, and it is these stories that I aim to capture or portray throughout my photography. But I don’t see myself as a photographer - I feel more like a storyteller that uses the camera to tell the story with his captures: And the deeper I get, the more I realize all about what I love, what I care about, and what I want to say to the people who closely examine my work. It allows me to express myself, share my perspective and I can tell a story with my pictures.

I love to inspire

I want to encourage people to follow their dreams, no matter what they are, as you never know which one of those will be life altering in such a positive way like photography for me. In my workshops (street & boudoir) I use mainly the elements that are available that moment/place. I will show you new creative approaches to create an unique mood in your stories/captures.

Skydive & chocolate addicted

"Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return." 
-  Leonardo da Vinci - 

I fear a lot and that is ok (I’m human) - but my biggest fear is not to have enough chocolate around me - that drives me crazy.

Pure joy and no fear I experience during my free falls, with over 2000 jumps I still can’t get enough of this unique feeling of freedom. While I love to hang out with my friends in air and having a good time - I also enjoy hanging out with new people who want to experience this feeling - being a tandem instructor and teacher I can do so.
