Hi, I'm Otis Toussaint

Welcome to my page

Otis Toussaint has become a household name. His breathtaking portraits and signature style have taken over all forms of social media, from Facebook to Instagram.  

Otis grew up in Trinidad and Tobago, and now lives in Kaiserslautern, Germany  with his wife Xaviera and wonderful sons, Chandler and Omari, and works in Kaiserslautern and the surrounded cities.

He began his journey into photography after graduating with a degree in psychology and history.  Otis started shooting landscapes and portraiture and found that people responded fiercely to his portraits, due to the connection Otis was able to create with his camera.  Otis grew a fast following on facebook and social media. Otis' ability to answer, comment and respond to his followers is just one more thing that makes Otis the photographer that he is.

Otis' gear of choice is his Nikon D800 and his favorite lens the Sigma 85 1.4 Art. He uses the 85 to allow him to be close to his subject but also allow for nice compression and blur. The “blur” is what got Otis interested in portraits in the first place, his curiosity pushed him to find out how he could create that, too. The rest is all in the details, and as Otis delved into the world of photography, he made a new path.
