Two lenses see more than one.
That´s why Yona Heckl and Tom Mennemann are a team: they can produce
photographs more efficiently from different perspectives and with
excellent quality. Of course, to do so they have to match perfectly.
Before joining forces, He&Me worked as an assistant team, exploring their
own styles until officially joining together in 2011 to work as He & Me
(Do not draw the wrong conclusions: It is HEckl & MEnnemann, their last
names. In work times, however, they do function as a couple).
So this is He: Yona Heckl from Heidelberg, Germany, born in 1977. After
successfully finishing the photography schools in Stuttgart and Munich, he
worked as an assistant for several internationally acclaimed and respected
photographers from around the world, until founding the company with Tom.
And Me: Tom Mennemann from Hagen, born in 1976, same country as He, with the same education, while a different school in Stuttgart.
These days their haven is Hamburg where they both live with their wives
and each of their two children. From that base they conquer the world in
pictures: Germany, Europe, the US, South Africa, Asia and wherever else
their cameras lead them.
A combination of the right feel for composition, technical knowledge (that
Germans are rightly famous for), and the creativity to explore innovative
techniques, assured them a firm spot in the world of car photography. They
capture the beauty of industrial design in its everyday environment,
shaping extraordinary situations that lure the viewer to linger. Their
expertise extends through the arena of automobiles, into fashion and
lifestyle bringing their extra touch of excellence that leads them to new
challenges reinventing He & Me over and over again.
Yona and Tom do not see this special spirit only between them, but also in
their assistants, art directors, producers, post-producers, models,
stylists, and clients. They believe that a solid team leads to perfect
results, and their continued success has proven them right. This bottled
magic has attracted prizes for their work like the ADC Germany Award, the
Cannes Lion, the ADC Global Award and the New York Festival Award.
