Welcome to my private photographer website. I am a hobby photographer based in Rüsselsheim (near Frankfurt), Germany.

I am into photography as a pass-time activity since quite a number of years already. Which means I am in the comfortable position not to be obliged to earn my money that way, but to be able to pursue my photographic projects in a relaxed manner and according to my own conceptions. To do that I move about the Rhein-Main area of Germany (which includes for example the cities of Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, Mainz and Darmstadt) and sometimes further than that and even abroad.

I like to work with people in front my lens, which is why my emphasis is on people (from portrait to nude) and street photography. Some examples of those two categories, along with some other impressions of my work are shown here in the galleries.

I am always on the lookout for interesting models for photo shoots. You don't need to be a professional model to work with me, I also like to work with beginner models. Neither do you need to have the looks of a high fashion glamour model. However, piercings in your face and big tattoos are a no-go.

II usually shoot on TFP basis between hobby-photographer and hobby-model. TFP being an abbreviation for “Time for Picture”, meaning that both photographer and model invest their own time, effort and expenses. In exchange, both have the right to publish the pictures taken during the shoot. No money is exchanged in either direction when shooting on TFP basis.
Paid shoots are the exception for me, not the rule...

Of course there will always be clear agreements before the shoot as to what is required and a reasonable choice of pictures afterwards. What is offered in addition is a relaxed and open atmosphere during the shoot. With serious efforts for good results but also with a good deal of fun during the action. So if you are in the Rhein-Main area of Germany (or traveling there) and interested in a shoot then feel free to just contact me. We'll talk about the essentials and I'll be happy to answer all of your questions.
