Inga Glimsche

Born and raised in the German state of Hessen, 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. During this time, she completes evening studies in communication at the Hanseatic Academy for Marketing and Management (HAMM). 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 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. After 3 years the name of the photo agency changed to MONDAY IN MAY.

Bettina Bergmann

Bettina was born in Hamburg and raised in a little suburb just around the corner, which made her decide never to end up in a small village again and do something awfully creative for a living.

So after her A Levels she tested her way through the creative scene, from advertising agencies, to film productions, via modeling agencies and photoproduction, to women´s magazines, where she decided to stay for over 20 years and successfully topped her career as a fashion director. 

As the print market became quite difficult, Bettina had to decide what would be tempting for her now, when she met Inga at a vernissage in fall 2022. They “fell in love” instantly and decided, that Bettina could be quite an enrichment for MONDAY IN MAY.

Ever since Bettina enjoys every day at the office, juggling creatively with timings and budgets for her favorite photographers in the world…

Ulli Saftig

Ulli grew up in Frankfurt where she finished school and began to work in the advertising business. Parallel to the daily work she decided to study marketing and finished with her master in communication and marketing.

After spending many years as an art-buyer in several advertising agencies she decided to move to Spain.

For 5 years in Spain she returned to Germany and finally ended up on the wonderful Island Fehmarn in 2022.

For the fact she loves to work with numbers and pictures Inga hires Ulli in July 2022 to manage the bookkeeping in her back office.

Katharina Fischer

Katharina was born and raised on a small island in the Baltic Sea. 

She studied Media and Art at Braunschweig University and University Leipzig and gained valuable international experience during a semester abroad in London.

When she moved to Hamburg in 2013 she started working at a renowned advertising agency where she met Inga. 

In March 2021 Katharina and Inga finally reunited and since then Katharina completes the team with her positiv energy. She is responsible for project management and participates with her great knowledge of art buying.
