Born and raised in Germany I started an apprenticeship as a professional photographer after finishing high-school. Three years of photo-education gave me a good insight into various fields of (analogical) photography (portrait, wedding, fashion, commercial, industrial) and negative film processing. After my final examination I received my German diploma as a professional photographer and started my own photo and video film business (after a stage at German TV broadcaster WDR) I then started making many commercial films for industrial clients such as Bayer Leverkusen, Phillips, Ilsemann, Klöckner Humbold Deutz, Thyssen, Langnese, BASF and many many more. Some years later I moved to the Italian Riviera permanently, turning my back to miserable German weather. I specialized in Landscape-, Nature-,Macro and Fine Art Photography and also started making digital art as well as painting.
My profession has always been what I love doing most and thus doesn´t give me the impression of "working". I see photography as an excellent medium to let people share my views of our world and maybe even to awaken their love for our wonderful nature and to thus help to prevent its total destruction. 4. years ago I moved again, this time to the Atlantic Coast of Morocco, Essaouira - a small fishing village and home to many artists from all over the world.
Many thanks for your attention and please don´t hesitate to contact me in case of any questions.
