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.

Julia relaxes in the bathtub, her naked body immersed in the hot water and bubbles. As she closes her eyes, she envisions a world where she is completely alone and can do whatever she desires.

As the music swells, Alice’s movements become more fluid and ethereal. The intricate patterns and images on her naked skin seem to come alive, dancing in perfect synchrony with her body.
