Eva-Marlene Etzel, born in Munich 1989, successfully gained her Master of Arts ‘photographic studies’ degree in 2016 at the University of Applied Sciences Dortmund, Germany.

At a young age, Marlene was greatly influenced by her creative family members, and thus, has always been encouraged to express her artistic passions. Ever since she received her first analog camera in 2004, photography gradually became a big part of her life and eventually manifested into her professional calling.

Over the years, she has been living and working in Munich, Cologne, Dortmund, Hamburg and New York City, USA. She worked in the photography department of QVEST Magazine and NIDO Magazine. Since 2016, she is based in Munich as a freelance photographer, focusing on conceptual fashion and portraiture photography.
