Biography:

"It’s simply inexpressible to insert a single moment of this whole world in frames to share it with others. The only determining is the tiny fraction of this single second.”

Johannes Hartig

I was born in Berlin-Zehlendorf 1988 and grew up in south Germany. Since 2007 my interests in photography constantly grew while I attended highschool. In 2008 I started working as a freelance photographer in reportage & event photography in the area of Landshut. While finishing my civil services I decided to intensify my constantly growing interests in photography & design.

From 2009 - 2011 I have been able to attend the Foto-Design-School under Christoph Eberbach in Pforzheim where I also met my creative partner and ever helping hand Katharina Kehm. After successfully finishing my studies, I finished an one-year internship under the photographer Matthias Müller in Ilvesheim. In summer 2012 I started a long & successful cooperation with the renowned BFF photographer Michael Schnabel for an overall of 6.5 years while I also have been working as a freelance assistant with other photographers all around the globe.

Since 2016 I am official member of the BFF photographers association which brought me to a vice chairman of the region Stuttgart in early 2018. In eraly 2019 I finally decided to push things forward and reduced my work as freelance assistant to a minimum. Currently I am looking for projects with open minded people who also have the passion to create new and interesting work and push advertising into a new level.

Let’s go - create.
