The agency was founded in November 1979 by Margot Klingsporn who is still the main shareholder and director.
From the very beginning, it was the agency’s aim to represent internationally acclaimed photographers, and top quality work has always been our highest priority. Today, we cooperate with leading photojournalists from around the world and the most important agencies.
Our photographers’ works are published in Germany and internationally in major magazines and newspapers such as Stern, Geo, Der Spiegel, National Geographic, Paris Match, El Pais, Time Magazine etc.
Focus supports international book projects in which photographers from across the world are involved.
In addition to cooperating closely with magazines and publishing companies, the agency is well connected to PR and advertising agencies. Many of the photographers do corporate work for companies and industry as well for cultural institutions and the tourism industry.
