LEICA MAGAZINE says it’s ‘Playtime’ ! NATALIA VERMEER c/o CLOSE UP AGENCY was in charge of hair & make-up in the editorial by Diane Betties (styling: Alton Hetariki).
The photographer received a BA in Global Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada, and a degree in International Management at Hof University of Applied Sciences, before dedicating herself to photography. She worked as production and tour management assistant for the production company Motion Music on tour productions for Moby, Frank Ocean, Christina Perri, and A$AP Rocky.

Natalia Vermeer moved from Croatia to Germany as a child and completed her hairdressing training in Düsseldorf in 2003. She has always been fascinated by drawing and painting which is why she trained as a make-up artist. “I like to create a flawless look that brings out the best features of the face. I love to see the skin of the person, not the make-up. Perfect skin, seamless blending and clean lines are the key elements of my make-up.” She has been represented by CLOSE UP since last summer.
