Thank you very much for visiting my Profile!

I was born and raised in Germany to an old family of artists. The last 20 years I have been focused to capture what I see an communicate it to others. Today I balance my creativity between design and photography, with each has its own role in helping me to capture the world around me. I use many mediums for making an image. It can be photography, lomography, lithography, painting or all together. I do bromoil prints and wetplate as well. It depends on the final image which I have in my mind. I’m very passionate with my own personal work.

I love to work with models that can portray a wide range of emotions, different looks and are not shy in front of the camera. It must be okay for you, that the images get printed in books, magazines or shown at exhibitions.

I want to create a series of images, not just one, just like a story in pictures. The images will be printed in a book and shown in an exhibition/display in my partner gallery in Amsterdam:

"He demonstrates an intense, personal and profoundly erotic perception. Using an exquisite, essentially romantic pictorial language he remains at the same time always formally correct
and with perfect focus on the aesthetics of black and white photography. This combination
of strong artisitic discipline with a very personal and intimate vision gives the images a
unique and powerful emotional charge, producing body landscapes full of intimate surprises in which we discover haunting images of female sexuality."

"He has a very fine sense of juxtaposition. There is a wonderful balance between the
aesthetic and the provocative in his best work, the suggested and the explicit, the possible
and the real, this life and the next. It's mystical in its impact." Paul Scott, UK

"Markus Richter is a German fine art photographer with an eye for the dramatic. This personal portfolio site has many galleries online, with good sized images. All of his work is in b&w, which is my own personal favorite. Much of this reminded me of the glamour of early Hollywood, but with a bit of a fetish flair. He portrays the women in his work as powerfully sensual, moody and romantic. Janes Comment: Anyone who can actually make a papasan chair look glamourous has my respect." Janes Guide, USA

"Para los q gustan de la buena fotografía erótica les dejo a Markus Richter. Genial para la fotografía de mujeres. sus trabajos son en mayoría en blanco y negro, lo cual es perfecto porque maneja esta fotografía muy bien. Sus fotos a la vez q son eróticas nos dejan con la miel en los labios preguntándonos cuál será la historia a partir de la cual surge la fotografía y qué vendrá después."

Liquid Mind, Spain

"Ottimo l'utilizzo dell’illuminazione, la pelle delle sue modelle ritratte alla luce incandescente, generano a chi guarda un risveglio spirituale in un equilibrio perfetto fra desiderio erotico e mistico. Le sue immagini evocano una sensazione senza tempo in un’atmosfera romanzesca.

Usando una lingua pittorica squisitamente romantica esalta una visione del soggetto molto personale ed intima e dà alle immagini una carica di sensualità unica e potente. Nella sua opera c’è un equilibrio meraviglioso fra l'estetico ed il provocatorio, tra l’apparente e l'esplicito, tra il possibile e il reale." Libera Eva, Italia

"The dark angel comes in many guises. He is death, he is lucifer, he is the snake promising eternal life but giving only pain and expulsion from paradise. With Mark, we can begin to explore the contradictions in the dark angel's character,a bit like the scientist with his instruments, but also with a clever technique born of an artistic perception of the world, and with a consciousness that this world and the next are inextricably bound together, the one reflecting the other, in constant tension."

"Zeppe, stivali, calze a rete, guêpière, corsetti stringati, fruste e manette. E ancora accenni di effusioni saffiche, voluttuose nuvolette di fumo di sigaretta, Champagne bevuto a canna, lingue guizzanti e baci rubati.

Il repertorio è very fetish, ma Markus Richter, tedesco di Costanza, è assai abile (e prudente) nel mettere in scena le sue magnifiche ossessioni e ritrarre un gustoso teatrino di performance viziosette con la riservatezza, la classe e l'eleganza di un fotografo patinato mainstream o di un fashion shooter.

In attesa del suo primo libro di nudi di prossima uscita per un editore tedesco, dobbiamo accontentarci di ammirare la classe di questo singolare feticista perbene in uno dei suoi workshop o delle sue frequenti esposizioni, e naturalmente sul suo sito, assai curato, dove sono pubblicate numerose gallery dei suoi set in Germania, in Gran Bretagna e a New York. .

Un po' Helmut Newton e un po' Dave Naz, senza nulla togliere al suo stile invero personale, Markus Richter in futuro potrebbe riservarci non poche sorprese. Ha talento, buon gusto e insane passioni fetish. Il giorno in cui deciderà di correre libero e selvaggio, di cedere completamente alle sue inclinazioni senza badare troppo alla composizione ricercata, all'immagine charmant, beh, quel giorno ci sarà molto di cui scrivere. Italia DELTADIVENERE.
