Berlin is full of modern day ruins. Where many cities bull dozed old buildings to make way for the new, in some cases in Berlin that just didn’t happen. Namely because there was no money to knock down and start again. So now the city is an ecclectic mix of old, new and everything in […]

Brilliant pictures and an extremely inspiring place. My fav one: the one with an armchair. If I were to shoot a movie, it would be there.

Beth Jennings - July 26, 2012 - 1:45 pm

Totally, Sara it would make an amazing place for a movie for sure.

This week I was asked back by Sarah Wiener and her crew at Wiener Brot bäckerei to shoot some product images for them. A couple of weeks ago I captured the opening of their shopfront Wiener Brot and I also went to the off-site bakery to capture some of the action there.  They looked at […]

A visit to Cafe CK – what a great way to kick off a Monday morning here in Berlin. Co-owned by Cory Andreen, recent winner of the 2012 World Cup Tasters Championship, and Kerstin Winkelbauer, Cafe CK is a delight to walk into. A little retro hint here and there, lots of space and a […]

Thanks a lot Beth for this great pictures! We are all super happy about the results!
You’re right, the pictures show the “real me”, I love it!!
It was really great working with you (oh well, it didn’t feel like work actually)! :-)
See you soon!

Beth Jennings - July 5, 2012 - 5:42 pm

Awesome feedback – thanks Mandy – and I think you all did really well!

Kitchensurfing is the brainchild of a handfull of overachievers in the US and has come to Berlin. It’s a concept focused on bringing chefs and their culinary skills directly to the people.  So if you have a private function, like a dinner party, and you want it to be beautiufully cooked for by a chef, […]

If you’ve been in Berlin a while, before long you’ll see what I call the Bubble Man. The Bubble Man, otherwise known as Peter Pan Seifenblasenmann or Peter Pan the Soap Bubble Man is often seen around Berlin blowing bubbles. Not just any bubbles, these bubbles are massive, amazing bubbles that captivate everyone that passes […]

My daughter will watch the bubble makers for hours. Your shots are magical.

Beth Jennings - July 11, 2012 - 1:36 pm

Thank you Sylee – yes the bubbles are mesmerizing!

Today was spent all day at the Skoda Velothon with some members of my group Photography in Berlin. Not usually my caper, walking around a big city watching a cycling race. But actually, this was cool. There was something like 7000 cyclists, amateur and professional, riding the same circuit, although at different times, around the […]

[youtube]http://youtu.be/mOkA-4V5-ck[/youtube] How to explain the collaborative process? Ah…it’s a mysterious thing, arriving at the final destination. You would think, looking at this video, that the written content was complete and as you hear it now, before we shot the images. It didn’t quite roll out that way… Emma has been exploring various themes in her […]

Awwwww a beautiful, eloquent tight little story…love where you guys are heading with this…I can see these narrative stories being for anyone who just wants to record a time and space moment in their lives. Love it ! great work you two x

Beth Jennings - April 20, 2012 - 10:00 am

Yeah…thanks Haley it is very well written isn’t it. A great story and it’s come together really well in the presentation. We’re really excited by this one!

Emma - May 12, 2012 - 12:14 pm

It is so wonderful to work with a photographer like Beth, she has such an intricate eye for visual language. Her photos tell stories I could never write on my own and I love how she captures beauty in every frame. There’s always so much love in her work. I think that staying open is the only way to collaborate effectively – you never know exactly what will happen, you just have to be ready to recognise and capture it when it does. Something Beth does very well. Hurry up and come back from Berlin please, I’m ready for more! xx

Beth Jennings - May 18, 2012 - 11:03 pm

Oh you say it so well Emma, staying open is the key to the collaboration indeed. I think we are both very good at that – the flow of ideas goes back and forth until we massage the piece to a point of completion… I do love working with you my dear you are amazing!! See you in Spring time so we can continue the collaborative adventure xx

Where was I this week? I was at Greenhouse – an eco-friendly pop up restaurant installed by Joost and his amazing team.

Oh you totally should, if you get the chance!!

Rosie Lockhart is in her final year of actor training at the Victorian College of the Arts. She came here with a big voice – and a great opportunity to learn what to do with it through her education at VCA in theatre and performance. Holy wowsers – look out here comes Rosie. What you […]

Owwwwwwww Beth these are beautifully breathtaking! I love love love this post she is stunning and you ave captured her innocence and intrigue bang on!

Beth Jennings - March 12, 2012 - 3:46 pm

She is beautiful, isn’t she? This is a show reel – a piece that showcases the actor – and by default showcases my work and way of seeing too. The perfect blend! She is amazing, though, isn’t she?!

Who is Lisa O’Hara? Lisa is one courageous gal. In April 2011, aged 23, she was diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC).

Beth Jennings - February 14, 2012 - 3:14 pm

Yes Gary you are totally right! He did an awesome job – I know he didn’t end up in the photos I took bizarrely! He must have been flying around a lot and we didn’t cross paths. Not to worry! Brilliant day, by the looks over at facebook everybody is very pleased with everything all round. Best, B

Darryn Lee - February 14, 2012 - 3:55 pm

As the owner of the yellow/white car in the photos, I turned up on the day and, had never met Lisa in person..
By the end of the day, it fealt as she she was a life long friend..
Lisa is one hell of an inspirational, beautiful woman..
Lisa chose my car as the car, she most wished to take home, the trophy that was awarded to me will be cherished more than any other my car will ever be awarded…
I will always be there if there is to be other events organized in the future..
Luv ya Lisa

Beth Jennings - February 14, 2012 - 4:07 pm

Brilliant Darryn, very kind words from one kind soul (you) to another (Lisa). She is one lucky lady to have such awesome people behind her. Her video is amazing how she does it I will never know. B

Terrence C - February 14, 2012 - 9:50 pm

I’ve been building an excellent partnership with Mount Majura Vineyard – they are sponsoring my exhibition opening next week and in exchange I’ve done some photography on site for them.  These images might be used for various promotional material – on their newsletter, website, etc.  It has been absolutely delightful to deal with them.  Namely, Julia […]

Beth, was great to have you out at the vineyard. These photographs have turned out beautifully. You seem to have an amazing way of caturing, lines, light and life! We look forward to developing our partnership into the future and to your upcoming exhibition at the Front.

Beth Jennings - April 9, 2010 - 2:49 am

Oh Julia thanks so much, yes, the pictures have turned out well I think, they capture the movement and spirit of your winery. It’s the people that make the place, their personalities and energy so that’s what I wanted to reflect in the images – they all look great what’s online here is a sampler for you. Thanks again so much for our partnership and I’m so pleased to be associated with your beautiful vineyard.
