We met Tanja through the power of the internet: We used Twitter to look for a translator and Tanja found us! And we found someone who has been supporting us with any kind of translation related tasks and issues for many years now.
The most important criterion for the selection of our contributors: Passion! Here we want to introduce all the passionate journalists, photographers, videographers, illustrators, bloggers etc., who work with us.
Mathilda has been supporting the layout team since #sisterMAG19 and managers to enchant us with her new creations every single time.
Our first collaboration with Beth was her wonderful table of contents for #sisterMAG17 which was all about “keys”. She has been filling white pages of sisterMAG, Lebenlang and Dearsouvenir magazines with her beautiful creations ever since.
We met Lena at the “Love Circus Bash“ wedding fair in 2013 (which we attended because some of Ashley’s pictures were being shown there). We were still right at the beginning of the sisterMAG adventure and desperately looking for stylists so we decided to just approach Luna. She has been another regular ever since and makes sure the looks of the models in front of our cameras are just perfect.
We met Claus through a contributor who has been with sisterMAG from the very beginning: Victoria Kau who has written for „CVmag“ as well as sisterMAG and worked with Claus at an agency, Gretchen. We have collaborated with Claus on many successful video projects, like the DIY book binding video. Several of the videos on our YouTube channel are part of his portfolio.
Patricia first worked for us at the very first Lebenlang breakfast – where she was also spontaneously roped in to shoot the cover for #Lebenlang02. This engagement started a successful collaboration which soon extended to sisterMAG. Patricia is now a regular contributing photographer and time and again manages to capture the perfect moment.
Looking for expat blogs, Toni discovered Ashley and her blog Chasing Heartbeats, in which she writes about her live as an American in the Black Forrest, in Paris and in Offenburg, in 2011. In 2012 Ashley came to Berlin and gave herself and Toni the perfect opportunity to finally meet in person. She, however, sent her sister Thea for the very first cup of coffee which has developed into years of friendship and a fruitful collaboration with Ashley as a photographer.
At first Helena tried to get in touch with us via email and (#shameonus) unfortunately must have been buried under the flood of emails that reaches us daily. Until Elisaveta from FernwehO Mag kindly reminded us of Helena and we’ll be grateful forever. Helena now works with us on every issue and even came to Berlin for a month to support us. Thanks to her #sisterMAG22 is filled with beautiful photos.
Alexander’s writer portfolio shows a definite penchant for football. So it is a mystery (to anyone but him – we hope?!) how he came to work for us but we are thankful he did! It all started with an email in August 2014 and since then he has been part of the team as an author, translator and editor.
Hürriyet is second to absolutely nobody when it comes to floristry and event design! We met her through our good friend and photographer Ashley who raved about Hürriyet’s work. Ever since our first cooperation, the flower arranging party in the summer of 2013, we simply cannot imagine an event without her bouquets.
Elisabeth Weber has been part of the sisterMAG network since late 2012, i.e. right from the start. Not only does she make every sisterMAG issue that much prettier and more colourful with her illustrations, she also contributes many DIY ideas.
In March 2013 we received an email with the subject line “photographer wanting to help”. So Thea decided to give her a try and sent Claudia the upcoming issues topics. Her reply knocked us off our feet: Only a short while later we received a full series of photographs with fantastic pictures for our Italy feature. She has become a core contributor as well as our resident food expert.
Blogger and author Liv Hambrett came from Australia to Germany in 2010 and currently resides in the city of Kiel. She has been a regular contributor since #sisterMAG18.
We at sisterMAG barely can do without Cristopher Santos. In 2012 the fashion and lifestyle-photographer moved from Winnipeg/CA to Berlin and as a freelancer works on projects that include static as well as moving pictures. What we love about him? He’s always in a good mood, highly professional and always delivers – and he’s always there when we need him.
Marco fand uns im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes “on location”, als er uns während eines Shootings eine Visitenkarte abluchste. Gemeinsam mit seiner Frau Trine hat er für das sisterMAG schon einige Projekte umgesetzt, z.B. Cover #sisterMAG17, Beauty Editorial mit Schmetterlingen oder die Roman Holiday Story. In Rom geboren, studierte Marco an der Kunstschule Liceo Artistica, Via Di Repetta.
Eine nette Bewerbungsmail erreichte uns letztes Jahr von der Studentin Elisa von Hof. Einen gemeinsamen Kaffee später war uns klar: Wir müssen zusammenarbeiten! Seither findet ihr in fast jeder Ausgabe einen ihrer Artikel, sei es die kurze Kulturgeschichte der Karikatur oder Tipps für 48 h in Madrid.
