Kristian Schmidt was born in 1970 in Goettingen, Germany. Schmidt has been a Freelance photographer since 2000, is father of two children, and lives with his family in Stuttgart, Germany.
Kristian Schmidt loves the wild, feels okay in the presence of a charging lion, and shoots equally captivating amazing wildlife and fashion photography. His highly popular Whale Shark Series captured a concept that has never been seen before - beautiful models swimming next to the world's largest fish - and brought together a team focused on raising awareness for the at-risk species.
During a discussion about this project Schmidt recently stated, "In my opinion, seeing wildlife by itself is a different world that is hard to wrap your head around since most of us live in cities, but as soon as you introduce a human into the scene you can immediately relate and see the awesomeness of these incredible beings. It's more touching and gives a stronger impact."
Throughout his career Kristian Schmidt has won more than 100 awards at ADC Berlin, ADC New York, AI-AP New York, AOP London, BFF Germany, Commarts USA, Graphis USA, Lürzers Archive & Lürzers 200 best Ad Photographers, PDN Photoannual and more.
Schmidt's corporate clients have included, but aren't limited to, ABN Amro, Allianz, American Express, Audi, Bitburger, Canon, Credit Suisse, Chrysler, Deutsche Telekom, DPD, EADS, FAZ and Finlandia Vodka.
