I’m German and started my career shooting snowboarding and skiing, and now specialize in dramatic action shots of snow and water sports. I’m a fan of anything fast-moving.
At the age of 26 my best mountain journeys were published in a book called ‘Fascination Snowboarding’. Ten years later I published my second book, this time about ‘The German dream of the America’s Cup’. I was the official team photographer of the first German America’s Cup team – the most prestigious sailing regatta.
I also shoot advertising and editorial work for companies such as Head, Elan, Oakley and Tommy Hilfiger as well as major brands such as Apple, Red Bull, Velux, Audi, BMW, and Quant. Since the launch of the Canon 5D camera series I have diversified from stills into shooting HD movie projects, including TV adverts and commercial projects. Today my work is a mixture of still and motion productions but always with a strong action element.
I’m always on the move to find out what technology has to offer and how this can influence my photography and filming in a positive way.
