Guenther Achleitner is a enthusiastic self-tought artist. Guenther used to shoot pictures in the 1980’s but took a long break from photography to pursue politics. Guenther has been Vice-Mayor of his home city Puchenau – Austria. He walked out of politics in 2012 to develop his career as a photographer. Since then he is living his dream through his pictures. His portrayal of nudes is full of respect and appre-ciation for his models. Beauty cannot be discovered by simply exhibiting objects without clothes but by connecting with the subject, with the partner on the other side of his lens. Therefore Guenthers models are always shown as proud and beautiful individuals. Guenthers understanding of beauty is based upon his appreciation for genuineness and simplicity, of immediacy and truthfulness of the simple being as an aesthetic and self-confident individual. The beauty and eroticism of his models emerges in the magic of sensual, often excited and soul-revealing moments. His photographic style can be defined as sensual, soft and natural. He loves to play with the available light, with a narrow focus and with lights and sha-dows as well. Most important to him is staying free in his creative process, he is always learning and trying to develop his skills in order to create captivating moments of the essence of female beauty.
