Night sessions and how to create portraits with stars in a short time

How did I get the honor of taking photographs at the internationally renowned and award-winning BIX Jazz Club, Stuttgart?

He has been doing this for 17 years now and as a so-called “court photographer”.

The club has many special features, especially when it comes to the overall lighting situations. “At some point I went outside and discovered the night for myself. Unique portraits were created.”

There are many anecdotes to tell. For example, the encounter with the “all-powerful” Quincy Jones, which cost me a lot of excitement.

“I was born in 1965 in Sonneberg, the Franconian part of Thuringia. I have been interested in photography since I was very young, which I largely owe to my father, who was an ambitious hobby photographer. I received my first camera as a gift when I was 10, and from then on it became my constant companion.”

After graduating from high school (1983) and studying audiovisual media (1990-95) in Stuttgart (Media University, diploma), he worked as a self-employed photographer and film producer at home and abroad, produced numerous books and has been a freelance lecturer in film and film for several years Photograph.

As a studio for photography and film production, we work for well-known national and international customers in the B2B and B2C sectors. We carry out digital and creative productions for image, product, advertising, travel, portrait and lifestyle photography. Our creative center is located in Ludwigsburg near Stuttgart.

“What kind of guy am I? Very passionate, quick and enthusiastic about a lot, not disturbed by (almost) anything, I cook a lot and love good wine, I do sports often, I listen to and collect music constantly (to the dismay of the family), I read a lot, I travel for my life I enjoy life and enjoy my free time with my family (very happily married and one son) and our friends.

Creed: “Life is short. Make something of it."

Ambassador for Manfrotto since 2011, member of the BFF since 2017.
