Thank you very much for your interest and for stopping by my site. My name is Philipp and I am the photographer at FOOTive from Magdeburg. I was born in September 1989 in Quedlinburg, however, I currently live in Magdeburg since 2011 and work in a state authority. I am currently solely responsible for all secondary tasks, such as the model search and responsible for the social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram and co.
I developed an interest in photography from 2010, but at that time I was mainly involved in landscape photography. In 2013 I switched for the first time to portrait photography and just a few months later I put the focus in my photography on the feet and everything that goes with it - So FOOTive Magdeburg was born. Currently, starting in 2013, I count exactly 175 shoots with 133 people from Saxony-Anhalt and other cities such as Hamburg and Hamm(Westf.).
Exceptional photographs require equally exceptional people in front of the camera. Standard would be me as well as most of my photographed people too "standard", I need the "difference", there are enough normal portrait photographers. The people I had in front of the camera are not "standard", they support me to work against the social opinion. This is what distinguishes my models, this self-confidence and self-assurance to be photographed against the "norms" - Just not to be standard or follower of society.
Portrait photography in composition with foot photography is not abnormal. After all, the feet are a symbol of stability, security and locomotion. Our feet sometimes do heavy work and yet they do not receive appropriate attention. The foot is one of the most important parts of the human body. I would like to give him the necessary attention with my photography and specifically set myself apart from other photographers with my shots. Portrait photography makes and can almost anyone, so why not photograph something different?
All persons shown here were at least 16 years old during the photo shoots. Persons between the ages of 16 and 18 have written permission and thus the consent of their legal guardians or they were personally present at the shoots.
This group is about any kind of shots of the feet and socks (Including shoes). Also related pictures can be shared here. Please note that no pictures for payment and pictures exclusively for watchers are accepted.
Who has some interest in my private things, may watch me with pleasure also on my private account. From time to time I will share some "normal" photographs there, but I will not be as often active as I am here.
