How to get started

From time to time, people email me and ask me how they can get started doing a photo shoot. The obvious answer would be: Just do it. But actually there is quite some work involved.

Hello Instagram

Instagram is the new Facebook, they say. In Germany it's a big thing and a lot of people speak about this platform. It took me a while to jump on the bandwagon. But now, I am finally signed up with an Instagram account, too.

Kicking off 2017

Winter time in Germany sucks big time for a photographer like me. Wanting to work with available light, makes it almost impossible to shoot. Outside the trees have no leaves and it is too cold to shoot nudes. Inside you need locations with large windows. And then you can still only photograph for a couple of hours in the middle of the day. Now, I finally kicked off the shooting season for 2017.

Cleaning up the closet

For me, styling has always been part of the process. When I make a concept for a photo shoot, I also decide what the model will be wearing and I imagine the whole scene. So, I regularly by new clothing, lingerie, high heels, accessories, everything that suits my shooting ideas. And the consequence was: A damn full wardrobe with over 50 pairs of heels, 300 knickers, 50 times legwear and so on. Time for a clearance sale.

Tattoos – art and soul

From yellow submarines to twitter birds, Playboy bunnies to tribals, stylishly written names to something I would call copy text, I have photographed all of this as tattoos, already. But there's a reason why I prefer to shoot women without inked skin.

Classic Cars

Just like salt and pepper, yin and yang, bacon and eggs, I believe, girls and cars are a suitable, natural pairing. I agree it can easily get cheesy (which I try to avoid). But I don't mind photographing something that's been done a thousand times before.

In my bag

No, this is not an advertising for a camera bag. I am simply writing about what I pack when I go on my trips, because many people ask me this. And switching from Canon to Sony gear changed a lot for me. Having the experience from so many trips, I know very well what I need when I am under way.

My year in fast forward

Today, I realized that of all months, December is somehow a very poor one. It gets left out in all the annual reviews that you watch on tv. And so it is with my personal review of 2016 as well. Even though exciting projects are coming up in December, I decided to already tell you about the shooting trips from this year, so far.

Shoot like

When I was asked by Marc Gerst, if I could imagine to take part in a production where they showcase how photographers work, I didn't hesitate one moment. We flew to Barcelona and I was filmed during a typical shooting of mine, then interviewed about how I work.

Webtalk with Ben Hammer

I was pleased to welcome Ben Hammer in my dining room to speak with him for one hour about my work as a photographer. Being in front of the camera surely isn't my favourite thing, but once you forget the cameras pointing at you, it's alright. And it was great to tell my stories.
