Ivo von Renner lives in Hamburg, though the world has become his extended home. He had hoped to become an actor, went on to study art and graphic design, and then began shooting scenarios with people for magazines. A few years later Ivo was approached by an art director to shoot his Volkswagen Golf in the same manner as he had captured images of women for his personal series.
People and cars became a big success. As of 1990 he began to shoot worldwide for international clients like Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, General Motors, Toyota, Volvo, Samsung, IBM, Shell and Sony - to name just a few. Ivo has won more than 200 international awards. A few years ago he expanded his portfolio to include short films and video clips. Ivo is renowned and highly respected worldwide for his work. He now shares his expertise in his workshops.
