After completing his photographic training and subsequently working as a photographer's assistant in Düsseldorf, London and Los Angeles, Frank Schemmann has been working as a freelance photographer since 1995 in Berlin, Düsseldorf and Hamburg for numerous renowned advertising agencies, direct clients and wellknown editorial offices.
Frank Schemmann understands how to use light with extraordinary sensitivity to stage a person directly and clearly. He has the right"eye" for authenticity and naturalness. Schemmann's photographic and cinematic portraits are authentic and contemporary. He succeeds in creating an atmosphere in the shooting/filming situation in whichthe personality, competence and profile of a person can be worked out and the profile of a person can be made visible: This is not least due to Schemmann's ability to take a step back when necessary. This characteristic and the flexibility explain why Schemmann is very often called upon for shootings, moving images or complex film situations as a photographer and/or filmmaker...
Schemmann attaches great importance to excellent casting as well as precise project preparation and planning. On set he creates the situation easilyand respectful for his clients, with a positive mood and a professional and good-humoured team.
In addition to his commercial work, Frank Schemmann supports a variety of charity, art and music projects. This is shown, among other things, by his work for the international (jazz) music scene: Schemmann photographs and films with passion.
