For me, photography is so much more than a deep look through the lens or pressing  the shutter release button.

Photography is art: Capturing the magic of the moment while being in full control over lighting and setting. Rough and unpredictable nature tamed with exactly fitted technical means and perfect timing.

Photography is the people you work with – behind and in front of the camera. But it is also the long and lonely nights in postproduction with countless cups of coffee and the same playlist over and over again, striding for the unfolding of perfection. It is passion and creativity meeting definite aims, budgets and deadlines.

Every day I walk the fine line between these seeming contrasts, and this makes my job so unique.
