For 10 years I have worked as a professional photographer in the field of action sports, outdoors, fashion and people photography. My passion is climbing and I’ve traveled a lot around the world, so it made sense to combine everything together: climbing, traveling, photography – and make a living out of it.
As a climber I’m fascinated by all disciplines of the sport and have climbed and photographed all over Europe and the Alps, Morocco, Asia, Peru and of course the big walls of Yosemite. The location that has the biggest place in my heart is my home crag, Germany’s Frankenjura.
My goal is to tell individual stories in the most professional way. However, ultimately the key to success for every shot is to be at the right place, at the right time and with the right people. I like to make the people around me feel relaxed and comfortable, then wait for those special moments. For me photography is not about using expensive gear or complex techniques, it’s about capturing the real moments and emotions. Ideally, the subjects don’t even realize that they are being shot. Finding these moments – delving deeper into people’s true selves, that is my goal.
