Since 2006, the main focus of my work as a photographer has been reportages on music events, advertising photography for musicians and travel photography. Over the last decades I have taught myself the techniques and attended workshops on special topics.
Besides documentation, photography also has an artistic aspect for me. A photo should not just be a simple representation of the situation, but also reflect the mood and, if possible, a spatial depth. For these reasons it may take longer sometimes until the picture is in the box as desired.
I like to use purposeful sharpness gradients as a means of design – for this reason many of my pictures are created with fast lenses and open aperture.
Some of my photos have been published on the websites of musicians, now and then there is also a publication in the music press (Bluesnews, GoodTimes) or daily and weekly newspapers (Süddeutsche Zeitung, Focus). I also design promotional material and advertisements for musicians and accompany CD productions, starting from photos in the studio, on stage or portraits up to the complete art direction of CDs and booklets. I am also regularly booked as a tour photographer.
