Calendar 2022

Every year starting in August, I get regular emails from people asking about my new calendar. Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about it and of course I have produced another calendar for the coming year. My 2022 calendar has now been published. As always in a limited edition.

I must be daring

I often think about my own work. In doing so, I realize that I'm too good, that I repeat myself too much and that I don't really produce enough new things. It's not that easy to break free of conventions and just trust something completely new.

Corona: 18 months later

I would like to give you a little update on how I am doing during the pandemic and what has changed for me in the past 18 months. At the end of last year I was still very optimistic and my watchword was that 2021 can only be better than 2020. Unfortunately, I was not right.

Who needs drugs?

Even though I am a nude photographer I get inspired by many things around me. There's architecture, nature and of course, also fashion. I love to watch runway shows, okay, not on a daily basis, but every now and then. This one by Iris van Herpen is amazing.

Cinematic Haze and Diffusion

If I were to name a trend in photography, it would be the use of diffusion filters. People just prefer photos that show humans a little softer. And so I decided to have different diffusion filters compete against each other in a short photo walk with gorgeous Natalie.

We lie to ourselves

When you ask someone what is most important to them in a person, the answer usually is honesty and humor. I understand the part with the humor, but honesty is such a thing. Because once we are really honest, we see that we are constantly lying to one another. We even lie to ourselves.

Cinematic Colors

Movies have always had these great colors. Even when I was young and had nothing to do with photography, I already felt that filmmakers were really working hard to deliver particularly beautiful images. Colors that flatter, charm and inspire you. And so I did an experiment to see if I could translate these tricks into a simple workflow when taking photographs in modern Sony cameras.

Smart portraits

Image manipulation has always been done. In the past this was done by hand and often still in the dark room. Most photographs — and especially the famous ones — are retouched. Retouching has never been easier than today. Lately artificial intelligence was added to Photoshop and after working with it for a while, I would like to share my conclusion.

Playboy Germany August 2021

Great news: The August issue of Playboy Germany contains a newly shot pictorial by me with Playmate Leni. We produced the series in good old Germany, actually in my hometown Frankfurt, to be exact. During summer, it isn't bad here at all, escpecially because I was able to plan the shoot very well ahead.

Shades of Gray

When you read Shades of Gray you might have thought about the novel immediately, but I am not referring to Fifty Shades of Grey here in any way. I wanted to write about the variations of the color gray which can be interesting when working with black and white art. Here are my thoughts on pleasing gray tones.

What isn't art?

As a kid, my parents took me to every museum and exhibition. Wherever we traveled, they found a museum. This could be my fate as a teacher's child. From today's perspective I am really thankful to them, though. Because, basially from my early ages I thought about art. And about the question: What is art?

How to properly enlarge images

A few weeks ago the new Enhance Super Resolution feature was introduced in Photoshop. Many YouTubers have presented this hidden technique as a great innovation. Such videos always makes me sceptical. So I thought I'd compare the different ways to enlarge images in Photoshop. Here is my review.

Shortcomings

Watching behind the scenes of a photo shoot is great. Unfortunately I have not produced such clips for a long time. Yet, I have to admit, if they are done right, they are a huge inspiration to me. Moving pictures instantly tell about the mood and transport a feeling. This is underlined by the music. And it feels like the model is flirting with the viewer.
