As trailblazers of their industry both Berlin based photographers invite you to experience their virtual gallery with works for BMW, MTV Networks or Mont Blanc. Ken Schluchtmann and Dirk Dähmlow, both born 1970, have specialized in architectural and design photography since 2001. Perfection and sensitivity are traits characterizing diephotodesigner.de’s approach to work. Moreover they are also “soft at heart” as they are honorary committed to the charitable organization Sage Hospital e.V., whose event series is stewarded by Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit.

Ten years of work and three months development time are behind the new, free app from diephotodesigner.de. Called Programm, it is an app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch that invites you to explore the world of architecture, design, and landscape photography. As a whimsical add-on, a link to Google Maps offers the possibility of navigating the world map.
The Photographer’s Portfolio With a Difference. Celebrating ten years of existence, diephotodesigner.de present their work for such clients as BMW, MTV Networks, or Mont Blanc. The gallery and databank consisting of more than 8,000 photos demonstrates the commitment of both photographers to the highest professional standards. As such, Dirk Dähmlow and Ken Schluchtmann count among the trailblazers of their industry – which is entertainingly presented in their portfolio using the most up-to-date communications technology.
For both photographers the app is more than just an electronic business card: “We show that we can meet our clients’ demand for our work on and offline,” says Schluchtmann. And Dähmlow adds: “We had to familiarize ourselves with the new technology, but now we’re a leap ahead of our industry.” In addition to the website, the blog, and the Facebook profile, the app as “virtual art gallery” is another building block in their medial presence on the occasion of their ten year anniversary.
The diephotodesigner.de app was programmed in collaboration with Branko May. It’s an alliance that has proven its worth over the years: since 2003 May has been responsible for the website of the charitable organization Sage Hospital e.V., whose event series is stewarded by Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit. The photo agency diephotodesigner.de provides consultation to the organization on conceptual and organizational questions and handles the distribution and updating of the entire presentation and press material as well as communications planning.
+ About diephotodesigner.de
Perfection and sensitivity are traits characterizing diephotodesigner.de’s approach to work. Ken Schluchtmann and Dirk Dähmlow (both born 1970) have specialized in architectural and design photography since 2001. They don’t reproduce things, they penetrate their subject matter. Employing both analog and digital means they emphasize light and color in their compositions, lending their images an uncommon sculptural depth. Some say they stage design like others shoot fashion. Architects and clients with international reach such as dan pearlman, Art & Com, Plasmastudio, VW, Puma, or Samsung have appreciated this quality for years. Their work has appeared throughout the spectrum of international blogs, design and lifestyle publishers. In the last several years their photo spreads have been featured in magazines like Wallpaper, AD, Vogue, Frame and many others.
