The Photographer

Hartmut Toepler

 25 years of passionate and enthusiastic photography

When Hartmut founded his photography business in 2010 – only a few months after he had moved from Hamburg to Sydney – he fulfilled his childhood dream to become a professional photographer. Completely self-taught and with more than 25 years’ experience, he has turned his passion for photography into a profession. In April 2015, Hartmut became an accredited professional photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) which is the leading industry body in Australia that ensures their members achieve and maintain an expected level of craftsmanship and professionalism.

Besides the commercial work in product, fashion, project and advertising photography, Hartmut loves to capture the most amazing places on our planet with panoramic landscape photography. Four of his landscape photographs have been voted into the ‘100 best views in Australia’ by a panel of world-renowned photographers, such as Peter Lik and Ken Duncan in April 2012.
