Bert Spangemacher, Photographer & Editor-in-Chief
Bert is a professional photographer and an entrepreneur. Born in Germany, Bert studied
photography in Hamburg before venturing to
New York City in 1998 where he first began
to work as a photo assistant and later started
his professional career.
Since 2001 Bert has led an independent photography studio, producing focused
visuals for commercial and editorial
clients as well as authentic portraits
of many prominent figures.
From an early age Bert was fascinated by the visual world and especially the many
ways that light affects images. Based on his affinity for imaginative image
production he developed this natural talent into the sought-after professional
photography you see today.
By adapting to every situation and making expert use of unique studio and outdoor
locations, Bert’s photographs take advantage of his years of experience experimenting
with and manipulating light to capture his subjects in that precise, perfect manner.
In 2014 Bert launched 4SEE Magazin, a magazine showcasing the latest global trends in
eyewear and fashion and which has become the ultimate consumer resource for eyewear
in Europe with a circulation of 19,000 and growing.
Bert also devotes himself to raising awareness about a rare form of blood cancer,
collaborating with various non-profit organizations in his spare time. He lives
and works in Berlin with his wife and beloved Husky Cooper.
