"If we do a panorama, the picture is created by 3 panorama-heads."


Ina-Maria Meckies &  Hans DoehleFilm-making, social anthropology, journalism and webwork were the ingredients melting together when Ina-Maria and Hans started with panorama shooting many years ago. owning a small web-agency it was natural to provide a panoramic service to their clients and further on; collaborations with the Tourism Board of Bremen and the Tourism Authority of Thailand set the marks. travelling to the kingdom regularly allowed Ina-Maria and Hans to witness the ongoing changes in the country and those things which stay for ever. awesome landscapes, traditional buildings and ultra-modern architecture are found in the lens – snapshots of ceremonies, natural scenery and streetlife, working places of the people ...

‘We love doing panorama-shots at the shoemaker, in a dental-laboratory or during a wedding ceremony inside the church - we love to catch the moment of real life.’ Reporting with a picture is the idea, Ina-Maria and Hans try to include in every panorama they make. Following the rule that quality is a matter of manual work, they have published several projects like www.panorama-thailand.com and www.bremen-rundum.de.

Going back and forth between Bremen and Bangkok is a challenge for Ina-Maria and Hans, changing from cold to hot, from hanseatic coolness to thai relaxation, from here to there offers the chance to bring a fresh breeze to the tropical thai beach and add some warmth to a frozen winters marketplace. But crucial is the deep affection to the places, where pictures are taken. Thailand and Northern Germany are only relatively small areas on our globe and ‘we decided to show the beauty of these places we love.’ For this, Ina-Maria and Hans use 3 panorama-heads – hers, his and the one that holds the camera.
