Savannah van der Niet (Savvy Creative) is a photographer, graphic designer and writer from Ausralia, based in Berlin, Germany.

Her work, shot predominantly on 35mm film, displays a certain awareness of the subjects she photographs. It celebrates the simplicity of life and human connection through it's observational nature. Her images are sometimes empty, sometimes full of life.


Her client list is a versatile mix of publications and companies such as The Guardian, Adidas, Frankie Magazine, Broadsheet, i-D Magazine, Peppermint Magazine, Tedx, Disney, The Thousands, The Collective Hub and Acclaim Magazine. With a specific focus to the music industry, Savannah has worked directly for Jagjaguwar, Splendour in the Grass, BigSound, Paradise and Laneway, and directly for artists such as Chet Faker and Client Liaison.

Please note: If you are representing a not-for-profit organisation, or are in a vulnerable position and in need of photography or design services (e.g. unemployed and need headshots to further your chances of employment) please email me explaining your situation and we can negotiate something that works for you. My photography service should be a service to my community.
