It's our curiosity
that leads the way
Over the past five years, Munich-based cinematographer and photographer Elias Maria has achieved great success with his high-end video productions. Born in 2003, the artist followed his passion from a remarkably young age – quickly realising that moving images were his expressive medium of choice.
Most of Elias’ work has been centred around advertising projects for well-known brands, involving large teams and high-end professional equipment. He is also set to release a feature film. With a keen interest in cutting-edge technology, Elias is always happy to try out the latest innovations.
Instead of limiting himself to a specific style, Elias Maria adapts to the challenges of each situation. For his film about the Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez regatta, he worked with a small, flexible team.
Elias owns several Leica cameras, and often opts for his analogue models. The quality and reliability of a Leica – be in still photo or video – is something he greatly appreciates.
