For 25 years photographer with worldwide experience
Languages: French, Spanish, English, German fluently
Many and worldwide – from Japanese magazines like HI FASHION to Mercedes and Pierre Cardin.
I have successfully turned my passion and hobby into my profession.
I studied art history in Montpellier, southern France, in order to be able to deal with the image structure in detail. The artistic aspect in photography is much more important to me than technology, which should only be a means to an end.
Since the beginning I work completely with Nikon cameras and am very satisfied with it. Currently I have several Nikon D5 and D3S in my camera case. Furthermore, I have complete light and video equipment.
I find my inspirations above all in nature and in art exhibitions and art books. Beautiful light outside the ordinary excites me a lot, I like experimenting with it at the limit of the technical possibilities.
Pure life – the beautiful moments. I do not believe in fakes and artificial photos – I appreciate the simple things in life and I want to capture these beautiful things and give them to the youth. A book tip on this: „The simple life“ by the German poet Ernst Wichert.
For almost all German mail-order and department stores as well as for French, Swiss and Brazilian customers. The complete list of references can be found on my website under Booking.
Curiosity, flexibility, above-average commitment, teamwork. The photo works only as well as the worst team member, and that’s where the assistant belongs! The assistant should also receive the same recognition for his work as Models & Photographer or Art Director! Everyone in the team is equally important and valuable!
In fashion and in advertising, good preparation and organization is important – the random photos are then created as part of the planned shoot – if you know how to use the moment fast enough and the customer is flexible enough. But the team just has to be in the right place at the right time and ready to go, otherwise nothing works.
Photos in the style of great artists such as Klimt and Schiele – the project has been in my head since the visit to the Klimt exhibition in Venice and awaits its realization.
I would have liked to photograph Fidel Castro. I have many ideas, I would like to do tourism advertising for Asian countries, so I have ideas churning out! Or fashion shots with dancers instead of models!
Promote aggression, brutality and stupidity! Photos with weapons! Cheap pornography! People – and animal – despising photos! Child-hostile photos and photos for brands that want to take advantage of children! Casting shows like Top Model! Cheap soap operas without content!
For over 25 years. Through constant quality and a very good price-performance ratio, I have loyal customers even in times of crisis, in Germany, France, Switzerland and worldwide.
Everyone has to decide for themselves. I lived and worked in Paris for a long time. Now we live in Germany in nature, 40 minutes outside of Cologne and Bonn and enjoy it.
Yes, more than office workers. In the season, I often spend weeks in Asia, America and the Caribbean, but then I’m 100% in Germany with the family.
The German and the Japanese calendar price for my project with seniors over 100 years old. The title „Catalog of the Year “ with Deerberg Mail Order.
All together – knowledge of human nature, my foreign languages, organizational talent, budget responsibility, technology – it must be an interaction of everything, otherwise there will be no success!
Being curious – on people, places, countries – just about everything! And please without prejudice!
On the people and their emotions – I want to capture them in the pictures. Natural – no posing or stiff situations.
Two weeks road-shoot in Namibia – camping in the desert, no luxury, only pure nature. We were just on the shoot – a great experience in the team.
Out of the belly – and sleep on it for at least one night!
A little meaning – I have moments with good friends and with the family more valuable than an expensive sports car in the garage.
World Music – Concerts – everything that is not commercial! And traveling – there are so many beautiful and interesting places in the world and nice people everywhere!
