my name is Corinna Schmitz, but everyone calls me Coco and that’s the reason why I chose the name cocography in year 2009, to combine my personality with photography.
I was born in 1991 in Stolberg near Aachen, Germany. In my childhood I was fortunate enough to discover my interest in photography. I soon got the desire to see the world, create something with my own hands and look further. Because of working as a model, using the world wide web, social media and literature, I was able to dilate my knowledge and my inspirations.
2011 I started studying communication design with focus on photography at the Kölner Design Akademie in Cologne, Germany. Now I’m studying photography at Middlesex University in London. While I’m studying, I’m working as a photographer, specializing in fashion, beauty and portraits.
Affected by the past and the present I want to create stories with a profound, personal sense. I pay much attention to details, their gestures and the originalities they have. The whole world is a fountain of inspiration and you only have to know how to use it. I am deeply inspired by my childhood memories, old movies, classical music, legends, nature and the old masters of art and photography.
Untouched beauty lures me.
