Natascha and I have been a duo for almost two decades. Working together for such a long time we’ve developed a strong sense of trust and mutual appreciation for each other’s work – blind trust, so to speak. Which has resulted in wonderful, tranquil images produced in small teams. With a high level of independence and mostly outside the mainstream. Images unlike anything created by advertising strategists or agencies. I’d say that’s an invaluable benefit for everyone involved. Both for our customers and for us.
How did you get into professional photography and what makes the profession so exciting for you?Originally the my plan was to become a vet, but then came the final exams... And I didn’t exactly get straight A’s. But photography was always an option for me. My father was a photographer himself and he fostered my passion for the craft from an early age. I began my training in Munich in the mid-1980s. Self-taught at first, followed by 3 years as an assistant for S.F.B. Dietrich. A master of light. A stint at the Bavarian Academy of Photography gave me even more insight into the tricks of the trade. With this know-how under my belt, I quickly realised how multifaceted, exciting and constantly evolving this profession is. That impression hasn’t changed to this day.
