Manfred Baumann - Biography
Manfred Baumann was born 1968 in Vienna, Austria. He discovered his passion for photography in his childhood. At the age of 21 he decided to become a professional photographer. His grandfather, who was a reporter during the 2nd World War, was his biggest inspiration. He supported him and donated him his first camera, a PRAKTIKA.
Today you can see Manfred Baumann`s work in renowned magazines, as well as in his own calendars, books and of course exhibition which will be presented worldwide.
He is a photographer who can tell stories by drawing attention to beautiful and erotic women. His fascination about how beautifully one can portray people and to create an impression with a photography which is so much more than erotic continues till today.
Another important part of Manfred Baumanns photography is the portrait-photography. He has already photographed celebrities like Sir Roger Moore, Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Kathleen Turner, Juliette Lewis, Lionel Richie, Tony Curtis, Sofia Milos and many more.
Away from his busy photography schedule he indulges in world travel with his wife Nelly. And of course his camera is always with him. Every viewer of his landscape photographies gets the possibility of taking a journey with the Baumann family to the most beautiful places in the world.
