Bettina Buschbeck is a German portray-/ documentary photographer and photojournalist, based in Bavaria, Germany, and Athens, Greece. She works for magazines, enterprises and private clients. She also contributes to a regular column in the German magazine „Naturapotheke“ (see editorials). „Mountains and Music“ are her passion. She spends a lot of time outdoor, portraying and writing about nature and the people connected to it. On a long-term project she collects musical stories on big stages and in small clubs.

„Insatiable curiosity, deep interest in human nature, and responsibility for each person and project I capture, are the sources of my motivation as a photographer. I want to tell true stories. Therefore, it’s all about focussing on the fine nuances behind the obvious. To discover the uniqueness of each and make it visible …

Being an adventurous person, I travel a lot in Europe, Africa and SouthEast Asia (since 2020 mostly in the balkans for research and reportage). I can’t get enough of it, of my eternal love for Greece and my old VW van.

I work in German and English, with advanced Greek and basic Italian and French 

Thank you for Your time – 
I am looking forward to working together with you!
