It makes no difference to us in how you identify. Whether you are cisgender, nonbinary, transgender, agender, gender fluid, or prefer another gender? Please let us know, and we will always ask you for the pronouns you are most comfortable with.
The most important thing is that you feel safe and at ease when you are being photographed by us. As an LGBT+ photographer I want everyone to be photographed the way they feel most comfortable. This way you will get photos in which you fully recognize yourself.
As a LGBT+ photographer I can of course make beautiful portrait photos of you. You can then use them on your social media, website or maybe you would like to print them to hang or to give as a gift to someone.
Another option is to tell us your own story. We use this as a starting point to create a unique piece of art which we then print on professional material for your wall. Although this approach takes a lot more time and work and results in 1 special image, you do get a unique and authentic work of art.
Safe Space with an LHBT+ photographer
Because everyone at Spannenburg.Art is part of the rainbow community, we know better than anyone how important it is to build a safe space together during the photo shoot. Only when you feel at ease, we can make images that really show you.
Why do you write LGBT+
In recent years, the letters LHBT+ have been supplemented by many other letters. The most comprehensive abbreviation I currently know is LGBTTQQIAAP (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, ally, pansexual).
Of course, we understand that the letter someone identifies with is most important to them. Unfortunately, however, these kinds of long abbreviations often do not promote the readability of an article. Hence, we decided to stick to the abbreviation LGBT+ or use the term rainbow community in writing.
Fun and typical LGBT+ photo shoots can be made in all sorts of themes. Think of "being fabulous", "Coming out" in which you show who you are or how you want to be seen.
