Florian is the Co-Founder and CEO of EyeEm, the world's premier photography community and marketplace connecting its more than 22 million creators with brands. The platform is powered by its patented computer vision software that automatically understands the content of an image, and curates millions of visuals, surfacing the best results for their global customer base.

He has been featured and exhibited in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Forbes Magazine, Wired Magazine among others and is an avid speaker on technology, entrepreneurship and the future of the photography industry.
Florian says, "It’s all about the decisive moment. Clean and simple backgrounds that shape all the attention to your subject. Knowing your auto-focus inside out. And good light!"
