Who are we?

At Orange Foto, we photograph everything from narrative coverage to the gripping portrait, which will be published on internal or social media. We take press photos, stock photos and record documentation, but larger projects also find their way to our inbox. We are 10 photographers and two photo editors (with you, we will be three), who pour our heart and soul into producing the most creative and narrative photos.
