Yotam Shwartz is a 25-year-old Hamburg based photographer. Born to Israeli parents, it seems as though he was born with a natural talent for photography since both of his parents studied this subject at University.
Yotam moved with 21 years to Milan and he discovered his love and passion for photography as he started to take amazing pictures of his model friends, which the agencies liked so much that they decided to use these images for their model set cards. During his time in Milan he trained himself as a photographer and spent most of his time behind the lens and on sets to learn as much as he can.
After buying his first camera he continued by taking pictures of his friends and family, developing his authentic style – capturing real moments.He tries to achieve these authentic moments by having a good connection with the people he shoots and by letting them be as natural as possible.
When Yotam moved to Germany he met Ralph Baiker, a leading advertising photographer who he assisted for one and a half years. After his time with Ralph, he took some time out to travel, explore, create and shoot a lot of personal work. His portfolio focuses on people, lifestyle, sports and street photography.
