Finding the perfect look for a story, no matter much effort it requires – that’s what Heide Christiansen is all about. The daughter of a Canadian photojournalist, she was introduced to the profession at an early age. But it took a detour of a law degree and a few lucky breaks before she finally set off in her father’s footsteps. Heide has worked as a freelance photo editor for many important German publishing houses and has won international awards for her films for the production company Stolz & Friends – München. She made her mark at Condé Nast, researching fashion and beauty images for GQ, GQ Style, Glamour, myself and Douglas Magazin, and headed the graphics and picture research team for Condé Nast Digital.
For many years, Heide is a freelance art buyer in the premium segment and photo- and video producer. She mostly shoots beauty and fashion, but also people, reportage and food for print and digital media.
