BFF – ON POINT, aka short clips presented by BFF members which grant a brief insight into their lives as photographers. We present you the film by CHRISTOPH SIEGERT, son of a sculptor, people & lifestyle photographer and director from Hamburg. Following his training at the Hamburg Photography School, he first worked for several years with photographers in Germany, London and New York – among others for Annie Leibovitz who inspired him with her staged portraits. Since 1996, Christoph Siegert has been running his own photo studio in Hamburg.
In 2013, the BFF Association of Freelance Photo Designers became the BFF Professional Association of Freelance Photographers and Film Creators. In order to do justice to the requirements of a changed marketplace, the BFF opened its ranks to film creators and to new members from the field of professional photography. Since then, the membership structure of the BFF has been expanded (student, junior, member, and professional) and the BFF offers new services.

Christoph Siegert is presenting you his personal work on GoSee about the ubiquitous topic of social distancing : “The new normal in these times of Corona is here to stay. New rituals develop faster and more naturally in youth culture around the globe. In my series ‘Corona Cornern’, I visualized the new-old rituals in 2020. A distanced greeting as a symbol for a close emotional connection despite Covid-19.”
