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.

An ultra vibrant unsaturated look

When I watch a film, I can't help but pay attention to the color grading. I wonder which colors were touched and why. And of course how the overall look was achieved. If I liked the grading, I try to imitate this result myself.

Model approved workouts

For me, physical fitness is one of the basic requirements a good model should bring. A bit of jogging, cycling, swimming and climbing stairs are good for endurance. And with 5 to 15 minutes a day, you can also train your muscles very well. I have trained with YouTube for the past twelve months.

The future is here

It is only a matter of time before virtual models will conquer our screens. It isn't the question if this is going to happen, but when. The technical possibilities are endless and since I cannot take photos during the pandemic, I asked myself whether I could render female 3D models and create real looking photo series. It's a fascinating new world that is opening up, so why not give it a try.

Nude books as an investment

There is a lot of talk in the media about the fact that magazines and books are no longer selling well and that the future is digital. If you believe the big publishers, the book market is getting smaller and smaller. Digital lives. Print is dead. To be honest, I don't believe in this. Because nude photo books bring quite a return on investment. I took a look around.

Sex sells

How true is advertising's most repeated phrase? Is sex really the most effective way to sell products? If you expect answers, this is not the place to search for them. I did not do any research, but watched some old commercials and made my own conclusion.

Finding the right frame

Buying a picture frame is not that difficult, I always thought. You choose a color and thickness of the frame and buy it. Unfortunately, it's not that simple. There are big differences in the qualities and you should also know exactly what you need when choosing the glass. I did some research on this and would like to share it with you.

Being passionate while making money

How often is too often? When does work become a routine and a passion for nude shoots turns only into a business? In the beginning as a hobbyist photographer taking pictures didn't involve pressure. Does having to earn a living get in the way at some point?

How to mount a photo in a passe-partout

I still remember well how my professor deducted points from me at the academy of visual arts because I had not presented my term papers in a passe-partout. There were twenty works and, to be honest, it seemed too expensive to buy extra passe-partouts at the time. Especially since I didn't intend to keep my pictures at all. In the meantime, things have changed.

Ordering goods after Brexit

Brexit negotiations were long and tough. When Great Britain left the EU, it was said that free trade was not affected. But unfortunately that's not true. I will explain what this means for my clients from the UK and how shipping has changed.

Composition Rules

When I was in school, I took the advanced math course. I find analytical and logical thinking fascinating. And so I am amazed by the scientific knowledge of teachers like da Vinci or Fibonacci. The fact that sequences of numbers have a meaning for my work as a photographer seems absurd at first glance. Sometimes also at second glance.

On the Ravages of Time

Every photographer has their own style. The longer I work as a photographer, the more I notice how my style consolidates, how perspectives and poses repeat. Sometimes I'm afraid of being able to keep up with the zeitgeist. It's just that I don't want to become the old guy who still takes photos from twenty years ago.

My life one year later

A year ago things started with the Corona pandemic and the lockdowns. All of my planned projects were cancelled and I could no longer do my job. I would like to take the anniversary as an occasion and briefly give an update on how I am currently doing.
