Frederik Buettgen

Born in 1981, Frederik Buettgen began his career with a two-year stint assisting photographer Clemens Kerkhoff in Duesseldorf, primarily shooting people and portraits. 

After this assistantship Frederik went on to study communication design and photography at the Muthesius School of Arts in Kiel under Dirk Reinartz, before returning to Duesseldorf where he trained as an assistant and digital operator for six years. 

Since 2009 Frederik has worked independently as a photographer in Duesseldorf, shooting both editorial and commercial campaigns. Frederik has a keen eye for composition and a real skill for retouching his own work.
