My first step with art began at school age, when I made had my first graffiti jobs. The next step to start a design study was therefore not far off. I studied at the Hamburg Technical School of Art and at the Frankfurt Academy of Communication and Design. During my studying time I began to illustrate stories. At first, comics called “Gossip Comic” which were published on a monthly base in Aschaffenburg city magazine. At the same time I gained an interest for children’s books, as well as political cartoons in newspapers.more
It all started with a twitter post by Peter Braunholz: “Received ArtSlant Photography Award, Los Angeles/USA, for ‘Diametral’, Print on

When did you discover your passion for photography?
When I was a kid, I watched my father taking pictures on our family holidays with his analog camera. He loved to shoot sunsets and monuments at night. Even thought I had my first digital camera at the age of 20, we can say I had this desire deep inside of me for years. It is when I began going on holidays by myself, by the French coast of the Basque Country and the Bretagne, that the passion woke up.
How did you come to the world of Wedding photography?
Honestly, it was a by accident. At the beginning, it wasnt really a personal wish, as photography for me is related to calm, to recouping by discovering magic places. I liked to take my time, and let the places I discovered surprise me, for the landscapes pictures and special motifs I discovered in the towns I visited. Over time, friends who liked my photographic style asked me to shoot their weddings. At first I refused, because it’s a big responsibility to shoot alone a whole wedding. At this time, I didn’t think I had the skills to do that, and I kept taking my pictures. I took pictures at gigs, then did shootings for dancers and musicians, then took pictures of newborns for friends, and at last, I did shoot some weddings.
Hahnemühle has been very active in introducing new fine art inkjet papers. At Photokina 2014 Hahnemühle FineArt Baryta Satin 300 gsm was announced as the latest addition to the world’s leading Digital FineArt Collection. As a ‘Certified Studio’ in the Netherlands, I was able to test the new paper extensively and completely independent in my lab Fine Art Printing Specialist. The printed results on this fine art paper for inkjet printing has impressed us – with vivid and detailed colours, deep blacks and a fine glow on top. Well done Hahnemühle!
