  • Talents at HOPPECKE - Wednesday, 10.07.2019

I am Kristin and since September 2018 I am training as an industrial clerk at HOPPECKE Batterien.
But today I would like to tell you something different about me:
I have been photographing for a long time. As a child I always had my mum and dad's camera around my neck. My favourite motifs were mountains and my friends. On the occasion of my brother's communion, a photographer, a friend of my mother's, was engaged for the family photos. Her work fascinated me completely. One year later, at the age of 14, I had saved up my first used SLR camera.
For five years I have owned an amateur camera, which I bought myself by waitering in school. I taught myself how to take pictures, I have never attended a photo seminar before.
I took my first photos for HOPPECKE in 2018 at InnoTrans, the international trade fair for transport technology in Berlin.  
When Jan, my trainer in the HR department, recently told me that we needed new employee photos for a social media profile, I suggested that he do the shooting. And he gave me the chance.
I fully supported and helped to shape the project: from the selection of motifs and extras to the planning and organisation of the photo shoot to the selection of images and maintenance of our online profile.  
This is what I particularly appreciate about HOPPECKE. I am perceived as a person and can contribute my strengths to the company.
