Photography. Creation. Thinking.

I am a photographer.
I love it. And I live it.

I have worked at a number of places over the years, like as a journalist and a TV host, but have been singularly focussed on photography since I was very young. At the age of six my father gave me my first camera, an Agfa Rapid with the extensive settings “sun”, “clouds”, “flash”. And in his darkroom he showed me the magic transformation of a white sheet of paper into a photograph. That’s when it clicked.

Some Words about me

I am internationally awarded, exhibited, published and booked photographer. Since 2013 I am a Professional Member of the renowned BFF (Berufsverband der freiberuflichen Fotografen & Filmdesigner e.V.). In 2020 I was elected to the national board of the BFF. In 2016 I joined the honorable AOP (Association of Photographers) in London. In 2017 I was a 6-time finalist and won one of the 12 coveted AOP Awards. In 2019 I was awarded 2 gold awards. My work has been exhibited in galleries in Paris, London, Berlin, New York, Zhouzhou (China), Dusseldorf, Cologne, Athens, Köping (Sweden) and more. In 2017 I led the first “Porsche Photography Masterclass” in Malaysia and teach photography and fine art worldwide.

Taking pictures with my camera is like tiptoeing into a world beyond visual perception. I try to imagine the space between emotion and reality.
