Mareike was born in Germany and raised on an apple farm in Ireland.
She became interested in photography when she was a fashion designer in Dublin as she had many opportunities to help out during fashion shoots.
It wasn't until her children arrived that she really started to work on her photography skills while documenting every moment of their lives.
Mareike is mostly self-taught but has taken instruction with the Italian Photographer Sara Lando and American street photographer Zack Arias.
She works as a freelance photographer in Hong Kong specialising in family and portrait photography. She also likes to capture images of the city, the streets and it's people.
She's an animal lover and particularly drawn to horses. She has travelled to the Camargue region of France to photograph the white horses there in their natural habitat.
