About us

Two humans. Two points of view. One Love

We are Steffen and Franka, a couple in love for more than a decade. And one thing unites us from the beginning - our passion for creating amazing images, whether as still or motion pictures. We both met at the university, while studying media communications including videography and photography. The second passion we share is travelling. And both were easy to combine. Therefore we often packed our bags, discovered beautiful places, amazing people and different cultures and captured them in images. You can have a look at our blog "Worldwatchers", to see some of our adventures around the globe.

Together we combine photographic and cinematic creativity with learned craftsmanship. Stylish. Emotionally. Timeless. With the eye for the beauty.

Originally from Germany, we fell in love with Australia - its nature and people are just amazing. After a long journey through your fantastic country we finally settled in the hinterland of Byron Bay and feel lucky to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. For us taking photos and videos is not just a job. It's a passion we love.

So lets meet for a relaxed cup of coffee and have a chat. Than you can decide if you want Balvin Productions as your trusted partner on your side.

You want to know, who is behind the camera?

My name is Steffen and I am a passionate photographer and videographer. I studied media communications and always loved to capture photos with my camera. At the beginning it started as a hobby, became a passion and finally a profession. With the increasing video capabilities of today’s DSLR-cameras, my passion for photography has naturally extended to videography. I love to let my pictures do the talking in my productions, capturing the audience with breath-taking pictures and emotional songs. It is such a blessing to have a job which fulfils me. Being a special part of a wedding, capturing the love and emotions of a family, showing the uniqueness of a business or a real estate property - in every moment I am grateful to witness this with my own eyes and to preserve each moment with a special touch. Please take a look at my references and check out my recent photos and videos. If you like my work and would like a free of charge no obligation chat please contact me. I look forward to hear from you!

And who is working in the back-office?

Without the help of my partner in life and adventures Balvin Productions would not be possible. Her name is Franka. She holds degrees in both banking and media communications and takes care of the marketing, planning and office tasks. She also doubles as camera assistant and second camera (wo)man. Franka is also working in Marketing for a tree house hotel and as a yoga teacher. She is my inspiration, my best friend, my heart, my soul mate and also my worst critic.

And who is our apprentice and upcoming star?

For the past four years our little daughter India is the light in our hearts and the constant chatter box in our ears. She is a natural in front as well as behind the camera and always surprises us with new poses and arty pictures taken with her little camera. During her apprenticeship she is also responsible for the final approvals of all work done by Balvin Productions.
