first of all: My English is not the best but I keep trying! If you have problems or questions feel free to ask and I'll do my best!
I do not see myself as a classic photographer. For the last 10 years my business was computer 3D visualisations and animations for several customers combined with a little film production and post production. Painting (classical or digital) was always my hobby too and my future aim is to combine all my skills to create something new and unique. I am more interested in CGI, compositings and media-mixing than in classic fashion photography (OK I would never say never because I try to be open minded but I would prefer fashion in a digital set for example)
I have a atelier in Oberhausen which is supported by the culture-departmend of the city. There I have my little photo-studio where I take my pictures but I also like to take outdoor pictures if the location fits the theme. All my shootings were attended by a female Make up artist which makes sure that you look great the whole time and gives you a little comfort because you are not the only woman (BTW I have NO problems if you want to take a person with you to support you). And I can promise the catering is always very satisfying because with a happy model you can make happy pictures ;-)
The models (male and female) I am searching for should be expressive and unique. I like subculture-styles very much like punk, gothic, cyber, rockabilly and anything more but I also like "normal" people with a strong personality. I prefer a long-time work with a model with more than one shooting: The first shooting I always see as a test if we can connect with each other! For me a good vibration at the set and a good communication is very important because it is the best way to make great pictures. In the following shoots we can make little concepts with each other (I am always open minded for my models ideas).
I have a regular job beside photography and I see this more or less as a creative hobby with the tend to become more in the future. The editing of my pictures is very time consuming because I do not cover some marks, add my name and finish. Keep that in mind! You get a picture CD directly after the shooting but if you want something special it takes time!
So I hope you like my works and maybe I'll find some interesting people here on MM.
