While I served as Executive Design Director at GLAMGLOW, I had the pleasure of working directly with fashion/beauty photographer, Dorit Thies, for 18 months.

We worked on high-caliber branding campaigns targeting our end-use consumers and Sephora stores worldwide. Dorit has a keen, amazing eye for glamour, beauty and all related details. She works quickly and is extremely creative. A great collaborator and easygoing and alert on set, Dorit manages a professional and reliable team during the whole production process.

She created results far beyond our expectations. I highly recommend Dorit for any brand that’s looking for a talented, experienced photographer because she is a strong team player and geared towards our business success.

I've worked with Dorit on numerous campaign shoot's with Estee' Lauder's Beauty brand, GlamGlow and have always enjoyed and appreciated the collaboration. Dorit is incredibly creative and it shows in the results of the shoots, the images are always beautiful as she thinks of all aspects of the image. She is professional and has been an absolute pleasure to work with. I look forward to doing more in the future!

I have worked with Dorit Thies on several photography projects in the recent past, including cover and layout shoots for Nail It! Magazine, a fashion layout for Kurv. Magazine and several lifestyle and e-commerce shoots for BedHead Pajamas. I believe that her strong vision including her lighting skills is what makes her stand out. Her lighting has a special quality to it. She is a strong creative force who develops high-level beauty, fashion concepts and stories. She is kind, generous and very professional on set. Because of all the qualities she is a dream to work with. She shares her set and has a lot of respect for others who add value to the concept. She is collaborative and a team player.

Dorit understood our brand message immediately and transformed it into images that perfectly visualize our completely new approach to skincare. Not only did she create a natural, glowing look with her highly professional team, she delivered on time and through her resources was able to find the perfect model for us.

“When we launched VictorySuccessSystem.com, we recognized that strong visuals would be a key element to our branding. Both Phil Dyer and I agreed to hire photographer Dorit Thies because she understood the look we wanted to achieve, and she delivered exactly that. Time is of the essence for two busy CEOs and we appreciate her being timely, fast and on budget. Dorit delivered as promised and we are using her images everywhere, including in a news segment that ran over 21 times on national television about Victory Success System. We recommend Dorit to any professional leader who wants a timely, environmental portrait that is lit exceptionally. She is perfect for anyone wanting more than the usual corporate headshot."
