About me

Do you know that?

You read a nice book or watch a good movie, the story develops into a positive for the protagonists, and you can literally immerse yourself in the mood, the feelings and emotions – you are just part of the story, in the middle of the action.

After a while, you realize that you’re sitting in front of the book or TV with a permanent smile – and you may be embarrassed at the same time.

That’s what happened to me when I had my first photographic wedding in post-production. This feeling, the empathy, the immersion and going with the flow of the alternating scenes and locations – I experience this with each new wedding, and that’s exactly what makes this task to me one of the most beautiful activities I can image.

How it all began

My passion for photography really evolved with a trip to New Zealand. At that time I knew that this four-and-a-half week tour would be an experience that wouldn’t happen again so fast, and just for this reason I afforded my first interchangeable lens camera. I knew hardly anything about the technique, but I just wanted to return with good pictures. Thus, the early days, both before and after New Zealand, were intensively influenced by the landscape photography in all its facets with almost daily consumption of Youtube videos and books on the subject.

Not quite two years later, friends asked me if I would like to take pictures of their wedding. My first thought was a mixture of panic and embarrassment. But with the assurance from the bride and groom that they had complete confidence in me, I finally agreed, and at the same time made the claim to myself to be so well prepared for this day that I could deliver the best possible result for me. The work on this first marriage and the subsequent resonance encouraged me to continue on this path and from then on to practice daily and improve myself.

Anything else?

Well, I’m a loving father and friend, a good listener and always helpful with a sense of justice and sincerity. I enjoy eating too much, be it in restaurants or from my own pan, trying to compensate with mountain biking and running. I like to consume good rock and gin and tonic, but also a thrilling book or a gripping movie. On some days I play the piano or pick up the guitar and encourage others to sing along. I like to hike in the mountains, but I also get enthusiastic about extensive, barren landscapes and enjoy sauna sessions. I volunteer in clubs and work – last but not least – most days of the week as an engineer for a living.

You have any further questions or you believe that I would suit you and your wedding as a photographer?

Then don’t hesitate to tell me a little bit about yourself.
