Photographer Saskia Koerner started pursuing her passion for design and creativity as a fashion designer when she launched her clothing label 'Misfit' at the age of 18. Her creative spirit and business acumen resulted in her opening stores in South Africa as well as across Europe and Indonesia.
After several years of being on set for her fashion shoots Saskia chose to pursue her lifelong passion for photography and quickly started taking her own photographs.
Furthering her dream, Saskia graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Art in Photography from Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, California in 2014, and moved to New York where she worked with legends Mary Ellen Mark, Nan Goldin and Kenneth Willard, in her free time exploring the concrete jungle.
Realising real jungles are her true environment and surfing is her ultimate passion Saskia recently moved to Bali where she was able to focus on fine art portraiture throughout the Indonesian archipelago, while still maintaining her keen eye for fashion and products and shooting internationally.
More recently Saskia has been working on a fine art Palm Tree series for a New York exhibit as well as her portrait series of single fin female surfers around the world, already having successfully exhibited in both Indonesia and Australia.
