Photography. Creation. Thinking.

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

Some Words about me

I’m a commercial photographer, fine artist (yes, that actually works!) and creative director living in Cologne, Germany and working worldwide. I’m thrilled when clients want to try something that a hundred photographers haven’t done before.
Courage is worth it.

I like jazz and heavy metal (works too), have a son and if you want to see how a photographer did homeschooling (thanks Corona, now bugger off) with his little boy, have a look here.

Kind of Showreel

My great colleagues from the BFF launched the “On Point” campaign. Short videos that put the focus on us photographers and our way of working.
This is my contribution. Enjoy.
