Ava was born in the eighties in Starnberg into an artist family and was growing up with art & creativity. Her passion for photography started with her love for horses. When Ava started out with photography, then still in analog photography, she specialised in images of horses. After her first big campaign job for Rolex, Ava started adding fashion and portraits to her portfolio. Today her work is focused on fashion, beauty and portrait.
Ava received a degree in graphic design and photo design and then spend a few years working as the creative director of an internationally printed fashion & lifestyle magazine in USA. After returning to Berlin, she took the art direction position at a agency for beauty-products. After doing this for several years, combining being an Creative Director, mother of eight years old twins and freelancing as a photographer, she decided that now is the time, to fully focus only on photography.
