this is me
Hi! I’m Cornelia Vinzens, photographer and videographer.
In 2017 I decided to expand my knowledge as an interior designer and scenographer and moved from Basel to Barcelona to immerse myself professionally in the world of photography and videography.

Photography has been a steady companion to me since early days. During my working career, I have been documenting countless architecture and interior design projects and exhibitions in museums. When studying photography in Barcelona, my attention was immediately drawn to the genre of portraiture photography. I deepened my knowledge about studio illumination, the direction of models and storyboard creation for video portraits.
While working with professionals and entrepreneurs, I realized that there was a big necessity of having an elaborated personal or brand image, which properly reflects their activity. There’s a clear lack of knowledge about how much you can achieve with a sophisticated and authentic portrait. Most corporate portraits are conventional and nice studio photos, but they are lacking context and fail to communicate anything. I realized that my experience gained in my former profession in scenography and my acquired skills in portrait photography and video complemented each other in a very powerful and effective way.
For over 10 years I had been creating visual concepts for museums all over Europe and it was during this time that I had developed a sensitivity for spaces, for creating atmospheres and for narrating stories.
This awareness inspired me to redirect my career not towards corporate portraits, but towards transforming a conventional image into a real personal or brand identity. Today all my knowledge and experience serve as a sound base for creating strong and personalized concepts with a coherent storyline and visualize them with the use of photography and video.
Over the last years, I’ve helped professionals and companies throughout Europe to promote their brand, products and services.
Today, I am proud to have recurring clients such as Groenlandbasel Architecture and Exhibitions and the Swiss National Science Foundation.
