Ulrich Beinert Photography

You don’t take a photograph.
You make it. (Ansel Adams)



Fine Art & Documentary

Since receiving my first point-and-shoot camera at age 10, I have been involved in photography. My current focus is on nature photography, specifically astrophotography. What used to be just a hobby has evolved into a flourishing business. My photographs of the universe have received widespread acclaim and have been published in many astronomy magazines and on NASA websites.


Aside from selling fine-art prints, I am available for assignment photography. Small to medium size projects are my mainstay, most prominently the complete photo art for The Alex Hotel in Freiburg. If you’re a business and need product photography or decoration, or if you’re an individual in search of a pet or home photographer, I am here for your needs.

… and more!

When I am not taking pictures, I fly for German airline Lufthansa as first officer on the A320 fleet. At home, I enjoy cooking and entertaining. Growing up in a home where meals were always prepared from scratch, I developed a love for cooking and have even worked in a Michelin starred restaurant as an intern. I enjoy preparing meals of all difficulty levels and for all occasions.

What my customers say...

We hired Ulrich as commercial photographer during the reconstruction and rebranding of our hotel in Freiburg, Germany. His assignment was to produce decorative images of the city and its environment, displaying a mix of authentic local color and classical modernism. He completely understood the brief and added in his own artistic flair. The results were stunning. Ulrich took a phenomenal number of striking shots so that we decided to display his photos in all guest rooms and the public areas. The hotel guests are full of compliments.

Ulrich is a gifted professional and a pleasure to work with. He is reliable, flexible and understands the demands of the client. He is passionate about creating technically superb images with strength and impact. Ulrich truly masters the art of observation, helping the viewer to see the extraordinary in the ordinary.

The sophisticated photos by Ulrich Beinert are of high technical quality and often exceptional or extraordinary in topic. What counts even more importantly for me as a journalist, is his professional and reliable work and the down-to-earth and friendly communication. This immensely simplifies everyday work and brings joy to working together.

Die anspruchsvollen Aufnahmen von Ulrich Beinert sind technisch hoch qualitativ und oft außer- oder ungewöhnlich im Thema. Was aber für mich als Journalistin noch wesentlich mehr zählt, ist seine professionelle und zuverlässige Arbeitsweise und die unkomplizierte und freundliche Kommunikation. Das erleichtert den Arbeitsalltag ungemein und macht Freude bei der Zusammenarbeit.
