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.

Playboy Germany April 2021

I've been working for Playboy Germany for nine years now, and yet it is always a great pleasure for me to see a new issue with a series of pictures photographed by me. That shows how important art is to me and that my work never mutates into a work to rule, no matter what. During the pandemic I often have the feeling that my life happens in slow motion. This makes the April 2021 issue of Playboy Germany even more special for me.

Loneliness and Liminal Space

Most recently I wrote an article about morbid charm. And what fascinates me so much about it. There is another similar aspect that evokes strong emotions. It's loneliness. We humans are social beings and yet feel a strong attraction in empty places, in solitude. This has nothing to do with depression and certainly nothing to do with Corona. I'll try to explain the concept of the liminal space.

The Charm of the Morbid

For years I have been wondering what attraction the morbid, the decay has on me. It is a fact that there are places of longing that are incredibly suitable as locations for photo shoots. But why are rotten places so appealing? Where does this attraction come from?

Trust your gut

Yesterday I caught myself doing it. I edited pictures and worked on a motif for a while. The perspective in the picture didn't fit properly, the legs looked too fat. I thought... but if I edit it, I could... and after half an hour of post-processing, I knew it. The photo was not good. I should have rather listened to my gut feeling right away.

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response

As a photographer I learned the importance of looking left and right. You find inspiration everywhere if you keep your eyes open. But what about when you want to fall asleep? Recently I learned about a trend called ASMR. And to my surprise this is eye-opening when you check it out on YouTube.

Quantity over quality

Instagram has become a ten ton gorilla for photographers. It's the place to be. This is where you share your works and connect with other artists. And where you find the models' sedcards. But something stinks! And to prove it, I tested it out on my own instagram account.

Video Girl Ary

Photographers agree on the fact that the pandemic makes working extremely difficult. But there are exceptions, I found out. For Video Girl Ary not that much has changed as she mainly takes sensual nude pictures of herself. What is it like to be your own subject of interest?

Hello Kitty

You hear me saying: inspiration is everywhere. I get inspired by so many things I see and experience. But to be honest, the truth is: Most of the time, I get uninspired. Uninspiration is part of the process, I guess. Like there is day and night, sunshine and rain or sense and nonsense.
