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!

At the beginning of this year I was hired to shoot a very cool job for Bang & Olufsen, that I am finally able to publish. B&O makes a special sound system for certain Ford models including the Ford Kuga and Ford Puma, which are featured in these images. We were shooting in an old factory hall close to Munich and it was a very cold day - although the pictures don’t look like it. This project was half photo and half film. My team and I were shooting the stills in one part of the factory, while the film crew was shooting in another area. Here are my favorite images from this production. Thank you to the whole team!

A few months ago I was contacted by the models Suzana Grebenar & Anastassija Makarenko. They asked me, if I would like to do a test shooting with them. I felt very flattered and happily agreed, so we planned a session in a studio in Frankfurt. We tried a few different looks, but my favorite images of the day were in front of this olive green backdrop. Thank you to the wonderful Adina Hensel for the great hair & make up!
