"Photographing someone is always personal."
This guy rides a motorcycle, likes 80s music and watched 7 Seasons of Game of Thrones in seven days during the last flu season. Continue at your own risk.
I think one can say that I am a rather emotional photographer. Be it an assignment or one of my own projects, I like to take time and get to know the people I am shooting with. It makes things more personal and more than just being two strangers.
I love natural looks, moments that spontaneously develop between my models and me. In some way I like to take the role of an observer, so I can be be less technically overwhelmed and focus on the shots I will love.
My work went through a long evolution from taking just pretty pictures in B&W, via a period in fashion to be now something that I like the most: a fascinating mixture of beauty, fashion and lifestyle united in portraiture.
I studied Fine Art majoring in Photography, then after some years of traveling and living in Asia, US and Europe, I have established my home in London.
While I am busy with pursuing my ambitions in Germany, UK and the US, once in a while I do stop to take time to do my own “love-projects” in filming documentaries and working on a portrait book “Men at Sea”.
At the moment, I often divide my time between, London, Germany and South-Africa.
