Stephan Ziehen photography

We have been retouching all Stephan’s work since we started Touch Digital back in 1999. In fact I used to assist him even before then. He is still producing amazing creative beauty and fashion images from his studio in Hamburg. We still see him in London for major campaigns. Check out more here.
