What drives me

Just a rusty nail is something very special for me. There are objects from bygone times that appealed to me. From the tin can to the worn out shoe, every object tells its own story. If you keep in mind the craftsmanship of that time, you can see the incredible attention to detail with which they worked, so you can easily understand why someone like me takes pleasure in photographing an old pair of shoes. It's fun to find things, own them and talk about them with friends over a cozy beer.

Why don't we show ourselves as we really are?

The wrinkle path, high gloss and beauty craze has increased into the unbearable for me. Let's finally be authentic again and enjoy naturalness. The glossy society with its Photoshop professionals lead us into an inflated, smoothed and extremely unnatural world. That's why I love the honest and unvarnished photo art - because it has meanwhile become an art to depict something unpacked!

A little more for yours truly.

My home is Laubach! A small town in Upper Swabia - in the past and still today the village of 600 souls is known as the Sinful Village. Our ancestors did a good job too and never adapted to the masses, which is why I most likely feel very comfortable in our village. I have been married to a wonderful woman since 2009 and have two wonderful boys - in short, I love and enjoy the country life. For about 14 years I have been intensively involved in photography, visual art, advertising photography and reports. My main job is in marketing at Wölfle GmbH in Ochsenhausen. At first I tried my hand at a small business as a photographer - I quickly discovered that, for example, weddings and all the grinning stories are absolutely not my world. Subsequently, the agency for digital media dec3 from Berkheim noticed me, in 4 years as a mini jobber I was able to develop further and learn a lot. To this day I have been working with dec3 again and again. Since November 2019 I have owned a small business again and work as a freelancer in the field of advertising photography, reports and communication design. Are you looking for a special visual language for your crazy, unusual, rusty and dirty project? - My gut feeling would then almost certainly say "YES".
