Since then I got into this creative activity with increasing enthusiasm.
I started shooting people on Gothic-festivals (Amphi-Festival in Cologne, Blackfield-Festival
in Gelsenkirchen and the Wave-Gotik-Meeting in Leipzig).
Through workshops and „autodidactic trial and error” I got more and more involved
with people-photography besides my commercial regular occupation (one needs to live
on something, finally) because I consider this to be the most eclectic and thrilling
category in photography.
Through festival-photography I was lucky to inspire Jana to this occupation und since
then she is around to help with words and deeds and her own photographies at such
She is also available to me on organised shootings and assisting in „customer care”,
I’m always looking for interesting shootings that of course may be somehow fancy.
I prefer shootings with gothic-style and related styles (Fetish, Zombie, Rockabilly,
Photography is a hobby of mine, i.e. it’s not about making money.
I generally do shootings on tfp-basis. If I’m specifically interested in you one
can negotiate a PAY-shooting.
Whether tfp or PAY: organised shootings will only be done with contract (model-release).
Both, outdoor and indoor (also with a studio to be rented) is possible.
Doing a tfp-shooting, arising expenses will be divided among the participants in
equal shares; I think that’s just fair for both sides.
Got your own ideas and conception? No problem! Of course we can discuss them upfront,
then we will find the shooting no trouble.
If you want a companion of yours to join the session, then this won’t be a problem
either (I’d only be happy if you would tell me before...)
What you can expect from me:
- time to discuss and plan things with you upfront
- reliability and adherence to schedules
What I’d desire from you:
- reliability and adherence to schedules (it’s not that nice when the model doesn’t
show up at
the date stipulated)
- joy at shooting
- your own creative ideas
- high spirits (even then when the shooting may become exhausting)
- guts (depending on the kind of pictures to be shot)
If this all hasn’t deterred you yet and you’re interested in a shooting with me,
you may contact me via the contact-data in the imprint.
Just ask, I won’t bite ... mostly, at least .... ;-)
