Born In the old world, Austria, I studied psychology for 2 years at the University of Vienna until my career as a fashion model led me out of my old country to Milan, Paris and many other countries. In the course of 7 years as a professional model I shot with some of biggest names in photography; modeled for Armani, Gianfranco Ferre, Hugo Boss and many other well known designers; shot a lot of commercials; and got some first-hand experience with how photo sets and lighting are set up.
My real love was initially pen and ink drawing which I pursued since I was a boy.
With the invention of Adobe Photoshop my world changed and the medium paper evolved to include computers. Excited by these developments, I started to mix my drawings with photos I shot and used to mix my drawings with photos I shot and used as backgrounds or subjects.
Graphic design was my second love and in the course of the years and with the combination of my art with photography I established an excellent base for the kind of work I am interested in creating. Photography feels natural to me and I view it as another medium to create art in the form of faces, fashion, stills or abstracts.
I am also a graphic & web designer: www.tr-graphicdesign.com
