Hi, I’m Ute!

Hello and welcome!

In my mind I’m sitting here with you while we drink coffee, and share our ideas about photography, life and love.

If you would meet me in person the first thing you would ask is how to pronounce my name. Easy answer: Oo-teh

You would also find out that I have a strong German accent. And maybe that’s something you can even see in my pictures.

I was born and raised in Germany before I left the country at the age of 24 to go out and explore. Traveling is a big passion of mine. I love to explore foreign cultures, landscapes and languages. For as long as I can remember there’s been this deep longing in my soul for adventure of any kind. I like to think that all those stories that I’ve experienced over the years in different countries and cultures influence the way I see the world: with a sense of wonder and excitement.

Photography became my way of expressing myself, telling stories and enjoying life.

Here I share my moments of happiness and beauty from California and all around the world.

Enjoy!
