Two weeks ago I got to photograph my friend Udo Leichauer in my home studio. He is a creative director at Leo Burnett Frankfurt and a really great guy. I wanted to try out some different lighting techniques and create a very moody and dark look. I also wanted to test out my new camera - a Canon 5DsR with 50 megapixels. I was really blown away by the quality which comes really close to medium format in my opinion. I have worked with Phase One cameras quite a bit and it’s hard to see the difference to be honest.
Here are my three favourites from my portrait session with Udo.
I was hired by the commercial real estate company blackolive to shoot several images for the launch of their new website. I got to shoot an architectual image over the rooftops of Frankfurt, a double portrait of the two bosses in front of the skyline and business portraits of the employees.
I really enjoyed working on this project. Big thanks to my wonderful team!

Back in October I had the pleasure of visiting South Africa for the first time. There is a lot of beauty to be seen and the light is really special. Amazing landscapes and wonderful people… I used an analogue Hasselblad 501cm with an 80mm lens to capture the following images.
The great people of the Imibala Trust ( a local help foundation for children in need ) took me to two different schools where I was able to take portraits of the kids. The next four images where taken in these schools.
