Guenther Achleitner EIKONAS Photography

Guenther Achleitner EIKONAS Photography: I am an enthusiastic and passionate freelance photographer from Austria/Europe.

I used to shoot (landscape) pictures in the 1980’s with an old and tiny analog Minolta X700 but took a two decades long break from photography to pursue politics. I have been Vice-Mayor of my home city Puchenau but walked out of politics in 2012 to intensify my efforts in people/female beauty photography. Since then I am living my dream through my pictures.

The brand-name of my enterprise EIKONAS is (ancient) greek and means “(longing) for pictures”.

My portrayal of (female) beauty is full of respect and appreciation for my models. Beauty cannot be discovered by simply exhibiting objects but by connecting with the subject, with the partner on the other side of the lens. Therefore my models are always shown as proud and naturally beautiful individuals. My understanding of beauty is based upon my appreciation for genuineness and simplicity, of immediacy and truthfulness of the simple being as an aesthetic and self-confident individual.

Can my photographic style be defined? Well, I LOVE colors!!! Overall, my style can be defined as sensual, soft and natural. I at all prefer to photograph with the available light, love to play with a shallow depth of field and with lights and shadows as well. Most important to me is staying free in my creative process.

I am trainer in photography and retouching (LR, PS) and am providing my knowledge through various masterclasses, workshops, trainings, lessons, coachings and online coaching.

Early on in her career, Angely Grace approached me to do a photoshoot in my natural light studio loft. We captured some stunning shots. The “Window To The World” series is the first of these sets to be featured in Purest Magazine.

I can still recall the day when Kiki and I stumbled upon an old, abandoned factory in the heart of Mallorca.

A Day With Alice

A Day With Alice

For this short film, we conducted an interesting experiment: I asked beautiful Alice to leave everything behind and come with me …

Waterline

Alice wasn’t pretending or posing for the camera; she was fully immersed in her own natural beauty and confidence as she stood before my camera in nothing but her marvellous bare skin.

Tailored Passion

Tailored Passion

Today, Olivia and I quickly did a photoshoot for Purest Magazine in the recently rented additional rooms of the “Studioloft Bildermanufaktur” – which are still in their empty and unaltered states.

Olive Garden

Olive Garden

As the last rays of the setting sun disappeared behind the horizon, the garden was cast in a soft, ethereal light. Kiki stood amidst the olive trees, her silhouette a work of art against the backdrop of nature.

Lingering

Julia lay there, in her skin, her body sprawled across the soft sheets of her bed. As she closed her eyes, she imagined herself alone in the world, free to indulge in whatever came to mind.

Bathtubette

Bathtubette

Angely Grace entered the studio, carrying a book in her hand. She undressed, walked over to the small bathtub in the middle of the room and settled herself in.
