Picasso had his pink period and his blue period. I am in my blonde period right now, Hugh Heffner once said. And I am with him at this point as I currently seek a blonde model for a story for my next book.
Most recently I neglected my blog a little. Sorry for that. I was so focussed on my work that I simply did not find the time. But of course, I kept my eyes open and here's a inspirational great clip for you.
For many years I have been following Martin's work as a nude photographer. His black and white calendar is known far beyond the borders of Austria. As I was heading to a production to Vienna myself, I decided to make a stop-over in Neunkirchen, the hometown of Martin Wieland. We chatted about models, shooting experiences and his new large-sized photo book.
Even though my Sony A7RII has an In Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), I was a bit unhappy with videos I filmed freehand lately. When walking, it's just impossible to keep a shot steady without the use of additional gear. So I decided to search for a suitable gimbal that can hold my Sony steady with ease. With the Zhiyun Crane 3 I found a proper tool.

Meeting people who are enthousiastic about photography is always awesome. Woj spoke with me about different aspects of photography in a very personal conversation. He described to me how he feels liberated and enjoys his creativity after splitting up with his model girl-friend. And why he would call himself a romantic pervert.
Looking back, it turns out, I have always been a visual person. My childhood still plays a role when it comes to creating my photo stories. I memorize scenes from the past and get nostalgic feelings. With the internet, you can easily dive back into your childhood.
Instagram is the place to be. There's nothing else. You can have thousands of followers and become famous. And even get freebies from companies. Instagram is open 24 hours every day so you should not miss out. This is what I learned during my past shootings.
Ben is a 26 year old photographer from Cologne. He just published his first photo book which is a documentary of his last year when he took a time out and the plunge to own a photo studio. With all its ups and downs.
Sticking close to the zeitgeist and not losing touch with the life of the young generation drives me. Curiosity makes me wander through the world with my eyes wide open. And inspiration can even be found in advertisings.
