I am a freelance photographer residing in Cincinnati, Ohio. Born and raised in Germany, I found my passion for photography when I was 15 years old and got my first SLR camera and a couple of prime lenses. Like many others, I photographed landscapes, wildlife and other subjects long before I started working with human subjects.
Today, much of my work involves people. While performance art like dance, and especially ballet, has a special place in my heart and work, I also enjoy portraits and the human form in a sensual way. Inspired by David Hamilton, I favor soft light and lenses as well as pastel colors for some of my work. However, many of my images of the human form are captured in B&W since it enhances the great contrast and beauty of the human body.
For me design and composition become primary subjects within the frame. I love to direct how light, shadows, posing and the model’s expression create a mood that slowly explain the greater vision of my projects.
