»To bann a motive just in the right moment or to prepare a complex shooting – each one can capture what brings out views in its own impressive look.«
Working as an art- and creative director for global advertising agencies with international campaigns for fifteen years brought experience in photography and shooting processes to me. The rest is passion.
I don't like my work to be gagged by fixed themes or categories, because the world isn't at all. The trick is just to know how to initiate a visual story. Fotograf
When not into photography my other passion is about sailing, so casually I'm working as a sailing instructor. Being offshore is pure energy and means to arrange with situations and the technical factor. Usefully trying to combine with the photographically part. Fotograf
Keep things simple and genuine. Focus on the detail.

It is relevant to set a focus. This is giving the clear direction to bring out what you are looking for. Not going for any kind of job, I rather select to be sure finally making a good and suitable job.
Portraits. Faces. Heads. Bodys.
Urban. Landscape. Offshore. Mountain.
Real. Authentic. Individual. Fine Art.
Ain't give a f*** on those disgusting shopping malls, shooting up like mushrooms out of nowhere. Losing personality. Not being any enrichment. Is the crowd really that blind, running for it like hungry sheeps? Always going with the flock? Well, losing an important point which is taken stepwise by the 'big boss' enterprises: The awareness for small-sized shops which always existed in the by-roads. Maintain personality. Individuality. Dealers who know you by name and sharing a coffee sometimes. First of all, knowing their craft indeed. Done with passion.
Bless those hard-working men and women. Keeping up themselve. When was the last time you got a true smile by any assistant while crossing a shopping mall last time? Answering that: Way too long ago.
The upcoming photo series will be for those local shopkeepers of Kreuzberg-Friedrichsahin. Working on it to hang out in a gallery.
