BIO - I was born in 1984 in a small town near Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Very early in my life, I became interested in photography and soon started with sports photography (cycling). Some years later, I began to focus on people and nude photography, a sphere that began to captivate me and until now remains an inexhaustible source of inspiration. I studied French and British Studies at the university of Mainz. Photography is a passion for me, but not my profession.
Living and working near Mannheim, Germany.

EQUIPMENT - At the moment, I’m using a Canon 5D MarkII (usually with a 50mm/1.4 lens) for my digital photos and a Hasselblad 500c/m for film shots. In addition to that, I also experiment with cameras such as a Holga and a Polaroid.

MODELS – I’m always searching for new faces for future projects. If you like my style, don’t hesitate to contact me via e-mail. Please include at least 3 or 4 NATURAL (=no make-up) photos of you so that I can decide whether you’d fit to an upcoming project or not. Some full body shots and portraits would be great! Simple shots are perfect, use natural light if possible.
I live near Mannheim (Germany) and most of my shoots take place here.
