I am an a experienced award-winning photographer based in the north of Germany, who specializes in portrait and editorial photography. With over 10 years of experience in the field as a journalist and photojournalist, my images have been published across the globe, including by the likes of the Associated Press, New York Times, Daily Mail to mention a few.

I am a lover of images that evoke a feeling or emotion in the viewer. Character portraits, environmental portraits that tell you something about a person. I find inspiration from photographers like Arnold Newman, Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Peter Linbergh and Gregory Heissler. 

While portraits and photojournalism are what I do mostly, I am adventurous enough to undertake a bit of commercial and product photography. And have done so successfully.

Ich bin ein erfahrener Fotograf mit südafrikanischen Wurzeln, spezialisiert auf Porträts und redaktionelle Fotografie. Mehr als zehn Jahre habe ich international als Fotojournalist  gearbeitet, meine Bilder sind auf der ganzen Welt veröffentlicht worden, unter anderem von Associated Press, New York Times und Daily Mail, um nur einige zu nennen.
 
Ich liebe Fotos, die beim Betrachter eine Emotion hervorrufen und habe mich in. letzter Zeit viel mit situativen Porträts und Charakterporträts beschäftigt, mit Forografien, die etwas über einen Menschen erzählen. Inspiration finde ich bei großen Vorbildern wie Arnold Newman, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Peter Lindbergh und Gregory Heissler. Sie spornen mich an zu versuchen, bei jedem Assignment etwas Neues und Anderes zu schaffen. Auch gern für Sie, wenn Sie mögen!
 
Auch wenn ich hauptsächlich Porträts und Fotojournalismus mache – ich bin technisch versiert und auch abenteuerlustig genug, um auch Ausflüge in die Werbe- und Produktfotografie zu machen.
