Sublime Stories (5 of 30)

Girls and cars, a classic theme that always works. I like stereotypes and find it challenging to work with such themes. Especially because cars are so small on the inside, difficult to pose for a model and not easy to find good angles to shoot from. But when you run into a beautiful DeLorean DMC-12, you know this is going to get great.

Playboy Germany, May 2019 issue

For the third time this year, there are twelve pages by me in Playboy. It's the German edition of Playboy and you can find it at newsstands everywhere currently. I know, this is blunt self promotion, but this is how it works, right?

Sublime Stories (4 of 30)

In art school I began to maintain my personal idea book. It's a small notepad that I usually carry with me and whenever I see something interesting, I take a note. It's full of incoherent things. I give them time to ripe. And when they're ready, I turn them into a photo story.

Orange and Teal explained

For more than 20 years we see an orange and teal look in the cinemas. It is a very popular way of color grading movies. Sometimes it is highly overdone and feels surreal, but when used subtle it adds to the atmosphere and appeals to us viewers. I wanted to understand why and digged up an old book from art school about colors.

Sublime Stories (3 of 30)

Five of the stories for Sublime were photographed in Frankfurt. I find it very difficult to photograph in this rather uninspiring city. The main reason could be the lack of cool locations and the unstable weather. But after days of searching, I found an allotment garden that looked nice and bargained with the owner to rent it for a shoot.

Yoli Lara by Ana Dias

Last year, I wanted to do an interview with Ana for my blog, but she is traveling so much, we missed each other when I was in Portugal. So, I figured, I'll introduce her through her latest behind the scenes clip from a Playboy production she did in Puerto Rico.

Sublime Stories (2 of 30)

My whole book is about contrasts. Outdoors vs indoors, small breats vs big boobs, natural vs artificial and so on. Contrasts help to create interest, I learned in art school. And Benidorm, the secret capital of skyscrapers in Europe, had always been a dream to me.

Back on instagram

Smartphones dominate our lifes. Mine not so much, to be honest. Still, I am always keeping up to date with changing trends and find it interesting to watch and follow. Therefore I needed to create a new instagram account and from now on you can follow me there again.

Sublime Stories (1 of 30)

Yesterday, on the treadmill in the gym, I decided to write a few tales for my blog. The stories of Sublime. A little behind the scenes to all the 30 pictorials that are in the book. Whether you own a copy or not, I hope this will be a bit entertaining. A deep insight in the photo productions for my latest book.

Inspiration through movement

When traveling we have a different mindset. We are more curious and we leave all the burden of everyday life behind us. Joan Bosch summarizes this with a beautiful video clip.

Profoto B10 Flash Head

For more than 15 years, I use Profoto lights. Now, if they asked me, I would have given them this wish list: Make it smaller, lighter, so I can take it on a plane, remove the cable and make it chargeable while using. Oh, and if you could add a display with large numbers, it would be nice, too. Profot hasn't asked me. But they still fulfilled my wishes.

Frederik Böttcher

Often photographers tell me that their work doesn't get valued enough and that the photographer's profession is not enough to make a living. In these changing times, I ran into Frederik who has a studio only one mile away from my home. He is full of enthusiasm and told me his secret of success.
