I started taking pictures when I shot my friends on film snowboarding in the alps or playing gigs in hazy punk rock clubs, back when I was a kid. My mum was a photographer in a museum in Munich and I used to hang out at her atelier every day  and pull prints in her massive darkroom. After school I started to work at the Studios of the ARRI Headquarters in Munich. They taught me how to operate dimmer systems and studio technology like Lighting Desks and Camera Controls.. In the beginning I lit game shows and commercials. Later after moving to Berlin I had the chance to work with some of the worlds greatest Directors of Photography like Roger Deakins, Michael Ballhaus, Christophe Beaucarne, Chris Menges, Franz Lustig and also with fine artists like Tacita Dean, Douglas Gordon, Peter Stein or Thomas Bo Nielsson... 

I love to work in creative teams. With the experience of almost two decades in lighting and 30+ years behind a lens I can help you create every mood you can imagine. anytime & everywhere.

Please check my Filmography on IMDB.

Taking photos still feels like play. I like it when it's fun, I like it when it's a challenge, I like it when it flashes... I love the sound of the strobes.. there is magic in it.. Come on, let's go play!
