What Nils Schwarz is good is, is with his people. Whether already in the limelight or on their way there, Nils captures them authentically and, perhaps, in ways they haven’t been depicted before.
His secret sauce? Treating people like people. “A shooting with me and my team shouldn’t feel like work. But the result really works for them.” Nils has portrayed a bunch of well-known people. The former Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel, sport legends like Usain Bolt, Mats Hummels and Timo Boll, some prominent faces from the music industry like Katy Perry, Katja Krasavice, Trettman and Gzuz187. And of course many actors and actresses like Andi MacDowell, Veronica Ferres, Oliver Masucci, Wotan Wilke Möhring and Kai Wiesinger, just to mention the well-established peeps.
If someone is deemed tough in front of the camera, that just makes the challenge more attractive. And the shooting will probably end up with both of them rolling around on the floor. Nils currently lives in Munich with his wife, 2 daughters and his Dackel Paul. He spends a lot of time working in Berlin and around the globe.
“It wasn’t always easy but I`ve made it somewhere. And I`m far from done.”
Nils has been shooting since the age of 18, worked as an assistant on major-league international sets for 6 years and has been freelancing since 2012. Today he’s a sought-out portrait, lifestyle and people photographer.
His dream? Collaborating with more creative agencies, brands and boundary-pushing publishing houses; doing some international documentary pieces. And capturing Leonardo DiCaprio, of course.
