About & Contact


Christine was born 1984 in Jena.

After an internship at a local TV-Station and at a camera rental in Berlin, Christine spent some years on many filmsets as a 2nd and 1st Assistant Camera.
In 2017 she finished her cinematography studies at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg.
Besides many great projects within the studies, there was a big influence of a scholarship at La Fémis in Paris where she could join the great lightning lessons of Ricardo Aronowich.
Actually based in Hamburg she is looking for interesting projects of any genre: fiction, commercial, music video

“Telling stories with my pictures and putting them into the right light to hit the emotions of the audience – this is a goal I always reach for and what drives me to think about new ways of visual storytelling for every single project.”
