We make your vision come to life

Holger Obenaus is an award winning, nationally published, Hi-Impact Commercial and Editorial Photographer.

Early in his career Holger recognized the importance of technology in his approach. To achieve his signature look of Understated Elegance, Holger developed a unique approach to combine the unmatched beauty of traditional Large Format Film Photography with the versatility and convenience of state-of-the-art Digital Technology. His meticulous workflow incorporates the artistic use of natural and artificial light. Holger’s never-ending quest for perfection led to close relationships with the best innovators in the industry: Phase One, Broncolor and Linhof. Although he is a master in post-production, Holger strongly believes in “Getting it right in the camera.”

The Result: Timeless Iconic images of stunning beauty, masterfully crafted one at a time.

Holger Obenaus specializes in Interior Design Photography, Architectural Photography, Food Photography and Product Photography.

we’re bonafide.
