Life is like a cigarette, you can watch it burn, or smoke that bitch down to the filter...
I am a Photographer and Director from Hamburg City, Germany. I am specialized in People and Portrait Photography.
11 years ago I started my career as an assistant pulling focus for TV commercials, Imagefilms, Musicvideos and Movies.
In the mid of my twenties i wanted to be a D.o.P.
A bit to young, but a lot of ambition, it was hard to get a job, without having good references. Back in the days, you were shooting on film, not Video like today.
"The TV business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side." -by somebody
Then Photography came up in my life.
A good and cheaper way to express myself.
A lot of assisting jobs to travel the world from Rio de Janeiro to Tokyo...
Also I used to shoot a lot of musicians and Cd Covers.

I worked with a lot of different characters, with different styles and skills. I was able to use my lighting skills, from that time i was working in a Film Crew.
A lot of traveling and fun. Exciting moments in my life.
And I still work as a director and D.o.P. on Shortfilms, shoot Musicvideos and stuff like that.
