It just came in the Facebook feed of OMDS. Melanie Többe is an Ambassador. freelance photographer specializing in outdoor, lifestyle and adventure. She took a photography course in Australia during her studies in 2018 and loved it so much that she decided to become a photographer. If you want to see what she photographed in Australia, here is her flickr account. Most of the pictures were taken with a Canon 1100D, but you’ll be amazed to hear that there are also pictures taken with an E-450. (Hello Ms. Többe, you now work at the OMDS embassy, where can I submit a request for the FT stuff to be repaired…?)
She’s also present on Insta, of course, as an influencer you have to be, and three months ago she was still running around with a Canon and advertising cuddly blankets and LightRoom presets. Of course, she also has her own website (I informed her by email that the private tax number has no place in the legal notice and she reacted promptly and removed the number. If she had responded just as promptly and said thank you for the hint, then perhaps a wonderful friendship would have developed… and I would have explained to her that, in Germany, you also have to be a member of the HWK as an outdoor contract photographer)
In addition to influencing, she also does very solid things: Just advertising. She learned it, studied it and she’s pretty good at it. You can check it out here.
So, a tip to all #naturelover who want to influence: This is how it works. And of course the site has to be in English.
The cover picture? Not Melanie Többe, of course, but Monika. Fantastic model and now a great photographer for weddings and kids. With E-M1, E-M1II and a few FTs. Trained with several photographers and completed two or three professional training courses on the side (I’ve lost track) On this picture with the then (2017) brand new E-M10III in Corsica in the wilderness….
