„Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.“

Steve Jobs

Fotografin Vivien Renziehausen

Originally from Germany, I now live in Mykonos, Greece. After more than 12 years living the corporate life as a manager in an international food company, I decided to follow my heart and live my passion and started my own business. My expertise lies in the photography of architecture and interior design for hotels and residential/commercial, yachting and also in water sports and drone photography.

In architecture and yacht photography, my focus is particularly on the harmonious interplay of nature and architecture and the combination of natural and artificial light sources. I love breathing life into buildings and showing them in the context of their surroundings. With my eye for symmetry and light, I find shapes, curves and lines that inspire me almost everywhere. Not only do I have a very good technical understanding, but also a good eye for details and unusual perspectives. Yacht photography in combination with underwater photos has numerous opportunities for truly unique and breathtaking shots that stay in people's heads.

While water sports photography from a technical point of view is in stark contrast to architectural photography, I also love playing with light, different perspectives and the interaction between people and nature. I am equally passionate about both types of photography and fully immerse myself in the different demands and approaches. My affinity for water sports is particularly helpful in yacht photography, because portraying yachts from the water is unique.

My superpower

I have been asked what is my superpower. I said "Well, I am German - that means precise, efficient and always on time."

My customers describe me as uncomplicated, always in a good mood, spontaneous and flexible - and the latter is necessary because short-term changes to plans due to weather or other surprises are not uncommon. 45 countries, a lot of time in the desert, in the (urban) jungle and other cultures have made me extremely adaptable and it is difficult for me to be disturbed or spoil my mood. “Nothing happens without a reason” is my motto.

As the CEO and founder of Viv’s Vision I share my knowledge and experience with aspiring photographers around the world and help them to start or grow their own photography business to have more time for themselves and their families and achieve financial freedom while doing what they love. I'm living proof that it's possible to turn your passion into a profitable business while living where others spend their holidays.

Seamlessly blending artistic vision with technical expertise to create images that evoke emotion, spark curiosity and leave a lasting impression is what drives me. I am constantly looking for new challenges and opportunities to further hone my craft and push the boundaries of what is possible in the field of photography.

The success and the money that you attract is a direct reflection of how much you are in alignment with what you do.
