Hello there! I’m Maike, a director, videographer, and photographer based in Cologne, Germany, working worldwide. I love to tell stories through my films and photos and connect people through emotions. I specialize in the documentary field. With a background in conceptual design, I not only aim to produce emotional content but also ensure that it reaches the right audience. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me!
