Dorit Thies specializes in beauty, hair, fashion and celebrity photography, and is known for creating powerful imagery ranging from international magazine covers to compelling photos captured in exotic destinations around the world. Dorit brings an intuitive eye and unerring technique to her assignments, and counts major publications, websites, top advertising and talent agencies, and international corporations as her clients.
Dorit has developed an immediately identifiable style during a career spanning 18 years that has brought her international exposure and recognition in Europe and the US.

Born near Hamburg, Dorit relocated from Germany to Los Angeles in the late 80's. She had previously established herself as a hair and makeup artist, working in Europe, Canada and the U.S. The techniques and sensibilities she developed during this time now enable her to create strikingly detailed and conceptual compositions, particularly with her beauty clients which have also led to high-profile assignment shoots for varied projects, among them destination spas and such brand recognized companies as
REVLON, Ardell Lashes, Urban Decay Cosmetics, LORAC Cosmetics, Wet n Wild Cosmetics, Merle Norman Cosmetics and OYA Beauty and ALOXXI. Publications that have featured her work include Marie Claire, L'Officiel IND, ELLE IND, Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Health, Fitness, Kurv, Zink and Nail it! Magazine. In her free time Dorit is a bon vivant, and loves gardening, visiting art shows, hiking and going on road trips.
