For many years I used a studio for the majority of my photography. The attraction of this kind of photography lay in creating artificial imagery, but today I find my subjects in the streets.

Life writes the best stories and practically no other area of photography proves this better than Street Photography. When you look more closely, the everyday reveals unique moments which are often comical, sometimes surreal and not seldom sorrowful and yet always show the variety of human behaviour.

But for me, it’s never about making a fool of people, it’s always about intensity and originality.
It’s these moments, which last only a fraction of a second that I try to make capture with my camera.

I live in the southwest of Germany, near the border of France and nearby Luxemburg. So I have the opportunity to take pictures in three different cultures, just around the corner.
My photos are published in magazines and I have also worked as a lecturer at various educational institutions for some years.

I give workshops, from studio photography to classic black-and-white darkroom technique and I have teaching assignments at the University of my hometown.
