Philipp Rathmer About
Philipp Rathmer was born in Düsseldorf in 1968. This is also where he honed his photographic craftsmanship. Philipp lived in New York from 1993 through 1995, where he worked as Hannes Schmid’s assistant, among other things. Since then he resides in Hamburg, from where he ventures out on international assignments.
Besides advertising and editorial work, he has photographed a long list of celebrities (Like Lady Gaga, Christoph Walz, Jogi Löw, Luciano Pavarotti, Tim Mälzer, Daniel Brühl, Vanessa Mae, Jay-Z, Michael and Ralf Schumacher…).
In all of his work he always attempts to place the emphasis on the natural ways and peculiarities of his photographic subjects in his own special way.
His charity work has included involvement in many aid projects for Hear the World Foundation, Dunkelziffer or the Epic Escape campaign.
