About me

Lighting – Expression – Simplicity

  • I don’t like show effects. I love simplicity.
  • I don’t like simple lighting. I love playing with light.
  • I don’t like stupid beauty. I love beautiful women with great expression.
  • I don’t like size zero. I love women.

I’m a retired professional people photographer from Germany. I’ve stoped working full time commercially in March 2016. It was to exhausting to travel so much. I’m retired now and working part time.

I’ve got a master of physics with the focus on low temperatur optics. That’s why I know how light works.

I’ve got my first camera as a child in 1964, more than 54 years ago now. As most amateurs I’ve started with landscapes and tried to be the next Ansel Adams.  Till 2004 I’ve worked as a semi-professional photographer. Travel photography and People.

In 2004 I’ve made my step into the full time professional photography business. I’ve worked for private persons, Agencies and Designers around Europe.

In 2016 I’ve decided to be focused on fineart & beauty portraits. By the time I’ve got requests from the people in the dance, fantasy and retro genre and fashion too.
