We are an international female photography collective from diverse backgrounds and cultures.


GWS was founded in 2016 and is based in Berlin, Germany, with over 50 members spanning Europe, North America, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America. We are joined together by a love of photography, a belief for equality, and the desire to be creatively and financially independent. The collective was created to provide friendly, mutual support in an often-solitary industry, sharing of information and opportunity, and a safe platform to exchange ideas.

We hold regular discussions, addressing the challenges of the photographic industry and the art world, collaborate on creative projects, and exhibit our works as a group.

Our diverse genres and backgrounds show the abundance of creativity, diversity and strength of women dedicated to photography.
