(In)Authentic Photography

My motto: framing meaningful stories. "The camera mostly lies about what is in front of it - rarely about who is behind it."

And all the more true "in every beginning there is a magic" (Hesse). For me, every image conception begins with an intense engagement. To then make the unsaid and unsayable visible. Pictures can enchant without words. We understand within fractions of a second. I am a photographer, videographer and designer. Photography means to create an image through space and light. Photography tells stories of object and subject. With curiosity, respect, patience and enthusiasm I like to dedicate myself to your story.

Photography Freiburg im Breisgau

I live, design, photograph and film in Freiburg im Breisgau.
I am fluent in english and german.
I am also happy to come with my mobile studio on site. I like to work with competent make-up artists. For TFP inquiries in the Freiburg im Breisgau area, I am basically approachable if the project is convincing.

Sustainability is of great importance to me. Since 2021, I have been producing according to the motto "green shootings". Read more here. (Text in German)
