Born and raised in the German state of Hesse, Inga Glimsche began her training as photographer in Cologne after completing her A-Levels. With a successful degree in hand, she moved to Hamburg where she gained her first professional experience as a photo assistant.

This was followed by a permanent position as photographer in a studio specialized in food photography. In 2009 she became the studio manager.

Afterwards, she decided to switch perspectives and started working as an art buyer in a renowned advertising agency.

From 2015, Inga complemented the team of SOLAR UND FOTOGRAFEN, formerly WaldmannSolar, and discovered her passion for project management. Her wide-ranging, longstanding professional experience and her organisational talent made her excel in her job, resulting in her being offered the agency. Since May 2020, Inga has been the owner of SOLAR UND FOTOGRAFEN and is proudly representing ten excellent photographers from the most varied areas of advertising.
