A week before Christmas last year, I was invited to fly to Barcelona for my last job in 2021. The film production Namoto was shooting a commercial for Bader and I was asked to take the photos for this project. For one scene, countless flowers were draped in the living room of our location house, and our model was able to move freely within them. I liked the pictures from this sequence the most. Many thanks to the wonderful team and the great time in Barcelona!
Last summer I was hired to shoot new beauty portraits for Nivea in Berlin. For one of the images we needed flying water splashes hitting our model. Nik Kotowski and Chris Munteanu, who were responsible for the TVC, built a machine that allows you to burst water bombs in a very precise way. The difficult part was to find the perfect timing to photograph the water explosion at exactly the right moment. Our brave model Laís got a lot of water in her face that day, but still didn’t lose her big smile. Here are my two favorite images and the finished campaign visual.
Thanks a lot to the great crew and everyone who was involved!

Last summer I was invited to join star chef Julia Komp on a culinary journey through Andalusia. Together with a small film crew we went to various markets, visited food producers, saw many of the beautiful landscapes of the region and watched Julia Komp cook some delicious meals. The project was a lot of fun - many thanks to all involved!
