Florian Büttner was born in Bielefeld, Germany. He studied Photography at the University of Applied Science in Bielefeld with a focus on photo journalism and graduated in 2007. His graduate thesis documents the exploitation of foreign laborers in Dubai. His life and choice of profession has always been fuelled by his wish to travel and to see and document the different sides of the world. Since 2008, Florian has been a freelance photographer. He has worked for several domestic and international magazines and newspapers, specializing in portrait, people and reportage photography.
In 2014 and 2015, he took up advertising photography and combined it with his reportage style to meet client requirements, creating photos aimed at telling an authentic story while transporting the client’s message. Florian’s strong suit is his versatile style paired with celerity and flexibility in fulfilling the various tasks of a production. This has helped him to gain a lot of experience in complementary photography during major TVC shoots. Florian is based in Berlin, where he lives with his family and shares office space with other creatives. GoSee : solarundfotografen.com
