About

Born 1971 in Stuttgart, I live in Düsseldorf, Germany. I studied Communications Design at the Universität GH Essen and Photography at the San Francisco Art Institute (USA). Since my final degree in 1997, I work as a freelance photographer focussed on portrait, architecture and industry photography. My pictures appear in magazines, corporate publications, and advertising campaigns. My personal projects are exhibited internationally.

Statement

In my pictures, I want to tell stories about people and places. By capturing the atmosphere and unexpected details I want to point out what makes them unique and how I experienced the situation I encountered them.
