German born Beauty and Fashion Photographer Sebastian Kriete lives and works in Sydney, Australia.

Accepted into a selective arts school in Germany, Sebastian studied visual arts and photography from a young age. After graduation he was accepted into FH Hannover to study Fine Art, but instead opted for practical experience. He began his professional career as a photographic assistant and working at studios in Germany where he worked on the international campaigns for the likes of Ferrari and Maserati.

By 2002, Sebastian had moved to New York where he was fortunate to fall under the tutelage of Albert Watson and Henry Leutwyler, whom he assisted until making the decision to move to Australia in 2006.

After being a highly sought after assistant in Australia that took him around the world, often flying to and from London with a two day turnaround, Sebastian settled in to Sydney life and launched his own career as a Fashion and Beauty photographer, and has established himself as ‘one-to-watch’. In 2010, Sebastian was shortlisted as one of Australia’s Emerging Photographers.

His clients include breakthrough and much blogged about Australian Swimwear label We Are Handsome, as well as L'Oreal and iconic Australian fashion label CUE.
