PHOTOGRAPHY & CONCEPT

 

I am a Berlin-based photographer and focusing on portrait, corporate, and advertising photography since the past ten years.

Also, I’m the founder of a studio community called  WERFTSTUDIO with my partner Laura Brechtel in Mannheim, I mostly work on location.

The studio is located in the heart of Jungbusch, Mannheim’s creative district.

On 140sqm total area and 4.5m ceiling height, the studio offers enough space to realize almost any photo project.

In Berlin, we enjoy high ceilings, herringbone parquet, listed windows … A real old Berlin dream!

Working with my network of specialized partners, I offer full production management from one central source, demanding the highest quality support and organization across all elements of a shoot.

Since 2012, I have been a professional member of the BFF  Association of Free Photographers and Film Designers.

In 2017 I became chairman of the BFF region Baden-Württemberg.

In 2015, I joined the prestigious AOP Association of Photographers in London. Known for my relaxed, down-to-earth manner and my ability to connect and collaborate with both talent and crew alike.

Some of my images are available in limited editions and were exhibited in Germany and other countries.
