Tips & tricks

For my work I use very different techniques. For clients I have since many years worked exclusively digital.
Deadlines, cost-effectiveness and compatibility with the modern pre-print-processes has made the use of analog technology
in professional photography difficult to survive.

In my personal work I use - in addition to the latest digital technologies - even analog techniques, which I cherish.

However, it is not associated with a specific preference, I am neither an Analog fanatic nor a Digital preacher.

There are many ways that can lead to a good image. At the end there are always ideas and results - the technology is more means to an end than an end in itself. I will present some creative techniques to you that I use.


Here I decided to show some contract work, because ultimately my company also realizes photo projects for clients. These commercial products are not seen in exhibitions, but they are used by the clients for brochures, posters, books or websites. If you need photos for your project, do not hesitate to contact me.
