Georg Banek

Born in 1969, Georg has been photographing since 1984. His style is characterized by approaching his subjects closely, playing with sharpness and blur, and designing loudly and colorfully with off-kilter perspectives. His attention to detail is common across his interests in portrait, lifestyle, erotic, nude, travel, and detail photography. He sees subjects in everyday scenes that others tend to miss and he excels at capturing these details with a spontaneous and instinctive shooting style, though he prefers to thoroughly prepare portrait shoots conceptually.

His contract work as a photographer centers on lifestyle images, everyday scenes, and employee and company profiles. For the past five years, he and Cora have written for photography textbooks and magazines. Georg studied economics and social education, and as a management consultant he pairs his photographic expertise with extensive experience in project management and sales to help corporate clients with their visual representation and professional image design needs.

Georg has devised and independently built three structured courses of study for photography, including the photography department at the college in Rhein-Main, the photography school at the university in Lueneburg, and Artepictura Academy (artepictura-akademie.de). He is currently earning a teaching degree in Media Management in Wiesbaden.
