Discover the Essence of Yourself.
Welcome to my world, where your story becomes my canvas.
Whether you're a musician, artist, adventurer, or a parent looking to capture the magic of your loved ones – I transcend the boundaries of traditional photography to illuminate you or your loved ones in the right light!
For me, photography means more than just capturing a moment – it's about preserving your true essence in images. Through my lens, your portrait becomes a portal, inviting you and your loved ones to step into your world and experience your expressions whenever you wish. It reflects your emotions and tells the stories that make you or your loved ones unique.
Each of my shots reaches its perfection in a unique blend of contemporary aesthetics, timeless elegance, and avant-garde creativity. My goal is to delve deep into your character, mirror it, and capture the emotions that make you and your loved ones who you truly are.
Our photo session is much more than just an appointment; it's a journey of self-discovery. Together, we celebrate vulnerability and authenticity as we create a visual representation of who you are or the love you share. We craft timeless memories that immortalize your beauty and expressions for eternity.

"Since our mother is already in her nineties, it was important to us to have a series of photos taken of her. We wanted to see her as she was later, when she was no longer with us. We wanted them not only in our hearts, but also in front of our eyes. What we wanted wasn't just a "nice photo" of her. What we wanted was to see her captured for who she really is - thoughtful, happy, questioning or radiating warmth! The pictures should arouse emotions in us.
In the search for a suitable photographer, we came across Erik Bont. In a conversation we explained our ideas to Erik. Erik showed us some of his work and we got the impression that he understood what we were talking about. At the agreed photo session, Erik not only showed his professionalism with the camera, but also his uncomplicated handling of his model. We were completely satisfied with the photo series created and we are happy to recommend him."

A GOOD PARTNERSHIP IS LIKE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP: TRUSTFULLY!
Just as in any successful relationship, trust is the foundation upon which great things are built. I understand that trust is earned, and that's why I prioritize open and transparent communication with my valued partners like you. Building trust is a journey, and I am ready to embark on it together!
Whether you have a specific inquiry or simply want to explore potential partnership opportunities, my contact form is the doorway to a world of possibilities. So get in touch, and let's start our journey!
To whom is the offer addressed?This offer is designed for individuals who want to capture their unique story, including musicians, artists, adventurers, or anyone looking to encapsulate moments that define themselves and their loved ones.
What are the differences between my Pureness and Premium Portrait Sessions?My Pureness portrait session is designed to capture the authentic emotions of the person I photograph. It includes 1 hour of photography time, with an additional 30 minutes for getting to know each other, ensuring a comfortable and relaxed environment. You'll receive 5 high-quality edited photos (with more available upon request), and the session allows 1 make-up & hairstyling as also multiple outfit changes. We'll shoot at a location of your choice to best represent your genuine self. On the other hand, my Premium portrait session offers a highly personalized and artistic approach. You have the flexibility to choose an individual set of high-quality edited photos, select your preferred timeframe, and explore various outfits and stylings. Multiple locations are also an option, and the most exciting part is the collaborative concept creation. Whether online or in person, we'll work together to design artistic, one-of-a-kind images. While the Pureness session focuses on showcasing your emotions, the Premium session is about crafting unique artworks, which is why prices for the premium session are tailored to the specific photosettings and stylings. Both sessions aim to provide you with outstanding portraits, but they offer distinct experiences, so you can choose the one that best suits your preferences and creative vision.
How can I book a portrait session with you?You can book a portrait session by reaching out to me through the contact form on my website or via email. We'll discuss your needs, preferences, and schedule to find a suitable date and location for the shoot.
Where does the photoshoot take place, and what options are available if I don't have a location in mind?PORTRAIT SESSION: The location of the photoshoot is entirely up to you. I believe that the surroundings should reflect your personality and style. Whether it's your favorite outdoor spot, a cozy corner in your home, a meaningful urban backdrop, or any other place of significance - the choice is yours. You know best where you feel most comfortable and where your essence truly shines. You are responsible for organizing the location that speaks to you, and I'm here to capture your unique aura in that environment. PREMIUM SESSION: We understand that sometimes it can be overwhelming to find the perfect location or handle all the logistical details. That's why we offer a premium experience where we take care of every detail. From conceptualization to scouting the ideal location - we've got it all covered. Your only task is to show up and be yourself while we create stunning visuals that capture your essence. PHOTO STUDIO (OPTIONAL): Can't find a location, or do you prefer a photo studio? We have a solution for that as well: we can arrange a photo studio in your area! The costs for this are discussed individually based on the location, duration, and requirements. We are flexible and adapt to your needs to ensure the success of your photoshoot. Whether you opt for an outdoor location, an indoor setting, or a photo studio, we are here to assist you in finding the perfect place for your shots.
What do I have to bring with me?For the photoshoot, you only need to bring your clothing options for styling. Once the location is set, and makeup arrangements are made, just pack your clothing choices, and we'll handle the rest. If you booked a premium session you will get clear informations what we need to get the job done.
Can I get professional make-up and hairstyling for the photos?Absolutely! I collaborate with a skilled team of professionals, including dedicated makeup artists and hair stylists. You have the option to book their services on top. The prices for these services may vary based on your needs and how frequently you desire new stylings. To provide you with a personalized and professional offer, I'll need to understand your specific requirements, so prices are available upon request. This ensures that you'll have expert assistance in enhancing your appearance and bringing out your best features, allowing you to step in front of the camera feeling confident and ready to shine.
Can I bring someone to the photoshoot?Absolutely, the choice is entirely yours. While we've found that individuals often feel more open and at ease when attending alone, we understand that having someone there for support can be important. If you feel more comfortable or simply desire some added reassurance, you're more than welcome to bring someone along to your photoshoot. Our aim is to create an environment where you feel relaxed and free to express yourself, and we'll accommodate whatever arrangement aligns best with your needs and preferences.
Can I purchase more photos from the session than initially agreed upon?Absolutely! If you find that you'd like more photos than the agreed number, you can purchase additional images separately. Each additional image costs EUR 25.00 retouched.
How long does it take to receive the final photos?You will receive your final digital photos within 2 weeks after the photoshoot if you don't give me another deadline. During this time, I will carefully select, edit, and refine the best shots to ensure that each image truly captures your personality and essence. Please note that the timeline may be longer for printed versions. Details regarding prints, including framing and sizes, can be discussed once your preferences are determined. Your satisfaction is my priority, and I strive to provide you with the highest quality results.
What are the detailed payment terms and why are there no premium prices?Regarding the absence of specific prices for the premium session, the cost varies depending on your individual needs and the scope of the project. I believe in offering tailored solutions to match your requirements precisely. By understanding your specific needs and expectations, I can provide you with a custom quote that reflects the value you will receive. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your project, and I'll provide you with a quote that aligns with your goals and budget. One week before the scheduled date, you'll receive an invoice for 50% of the session fee. The remaining 50% is to be paid 10 days after you receive the final images.
What if the deadline cannot be met by either party and is there a right of withdrawal?In the event that a deadline cannot be met, we prioritize flexibility and understanding. If a delay arises, we work together to establish a new feasible deadline that accommodates both parties. Should a situation arise where I need to cancel the scheduled date (and not you), and a new suitable deadline cannot be arranged that works for you, you will receive a full refund of your payment. If I've already began planning the photoshoot, and you decide to cancel during the planning process, a 20% commission fee will be retained to cover the hours invested in preparation and planning. If I did not began with planning you will have no costs at all. At the core of our approach is mutual respect and transparency, ensuring that both parties are treated fairly in unforeseen circumstances that may affect the agreed-upon timeline.
How are travel expenses handled?If the desired location is situated farther away from Feldkirch/Austria, travel costs will be applicable beyond a 30 km distance. If travel by car is feasible, the rate is EUR 0.50 per kilometer driven, starting from 30 km away from Feldkirch/Vorarlberg, Austria. In cases where travel by car is not viable, adjusted travel expenses will be discussed and agreed upon with you. My aim is to find the optimal solution for each photoshoot and ensure that reaching the chosen location is as convenient and reasonable as possible. Your satisfaction and a seamless experience are of utmost importance to me.
What if the weather conditions are unfavorable on the day of the photoshoot?If the weather isn't suitable for the outdoor photoshoot on the scheduled date, we'll reschedule the session at no extra charge. Your comfort and the quality of the photos are our top priority.
Can I also get my photos printed?Absolutely, you can have your photos printed according to your preferences. The printing fee will vary based on the type of prints you'd like (because of different size and framing options). To provide you with a tailored offer that aligns with your desires, we would need more information about your specific wishes. Feel free to share your requirements, and we'll be more than happy to create a personalized quote that suits your needs. Your satisfaction with both the digital and physical versions of your photographs is our top priority.
Will the photos be published automatically?Of course not! If I choose to share the pictures, I will always seek your agreement beforehand and ask for a "collaboration-post" or how we handle the situation. While I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the work, I also deeply respect your wishes of privacy.
