Appeal of the Sony a7RIII

For a couple of weeks the successor of my Sony camera is out on the market. You could read many opinions in internet forums from people who had only read the technical specs from Sony's press release. Luckily I was invited to get hands-on information through a professional Sony expert at my local dealer. Here are my (rather non-technical) conclusions.

A great year for me ends

So it's already December again. An exciting year is drawing to a close. I travelled to many places in 2017 and worked on very interesting projects. Many things have been pushed forward in the past months and while I usually rather remain the invisible guy behind the camera, I am happy to tell you a bit about my adventures of 2017.

Herr Merzi

Shooting with ancient cameras on instant film requires a good portion of madness. Who is this guy who goes through this struggle? So right when Stefan Merz – who's artist name is Herr Merzi – returned from an exhibition during Paris Photo fair I met with him and we chatted about him and his view on photography.

Fleurs du Mal

Halloween means nothing to me. Yet, I had to smile when I re-watched this advertisement from Agent Provocateur which was featured at the Berlin Fashion Film Festival. Unique, for sure. Check this out.

Looking for blondes

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.

La Fille d'Hérode

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.

Martin Wieland

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.

Stabilized Footage

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.

The look of the 80s

When you make a mood board of a certain decade, it is interesting to see how colors, patterns and things universally describe an era. But how do such things happen? And who created the look of the 80s?

Wojtek Pruchnicki

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.

Opel Manta and Manta CC

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.
