about – me
I was born 1984 in munich and thats where i still live. Even in younger years i was attracted by photography and found my path doing high contrast monochrome photographs. Many photographers start learning on film and sometimes switch to digital. For me it was the opposit. I started digital and after that i discovered film photography. Now im using both.

about – my style
The idea behind my photographs is to combine black and white with a modern high contrast style. I use the whole scale from black to very bright tones in my work.
Most time when i see a good looking environment with good light conditions aswell i already have a picture in my head of how i want to photograph it. Then i’m just waiting for the right subject to enter the scene. Sometimes things are much faster and it is only about a view seconds to decide how to take the shot.

about – street photography
Street Photography is very unique. If the moment is gone it is gone.
Shooting on the streets can be more or less random sometimes. You never know what will happen at the next moment. So you need to have an idea about what kind of photos you want to take and what kind of photos you dont want to take. It is about catching the extraordanary moments in ordinary situations. Street Photography is representing the szene exactly how it was at the moment. Thats what i like about it.
