Born and raised in Germany, I am working as a freelance photojournalist and photo editor out of my hometown Hamburg.
In the past 20 years I have gained expert knowledge in the field of photojournalism, working as an executive photo editor in Hamburg and Los Angeles.
I am also a member of the Photojournalists Committee of Experts at the German Federation of Journalists (DJV, Deutscher Journalisten Verband).
After the publication of my King Bansah reportage in the German GEO Magazine in March 2018, I was greatly honored to receive the title of the Official Royal Court Photographer of the Kingdom of Hohoe Gbi Traditional Ghana for his Majesty King Cephas Kosi Bansah in recognition and appreciation of special grants and contribution to the Kingdom of Hohoe, Ghana.
My personal longterm projects in my home country Germany focus on people, their heritage, their culture, their feeling about 'Heimat'.
Many international print magazines and newspapers such as London Times, People Magazine, GEO Germany, GEO Spain, GEO Russia, JWD, Bunte, Stern, View or Bauer Media Group as well as online outlets from all around the world such as Spiegel.de, New York Post, Daily Mail, Paris Match Afrique and many more have published my stories and documentaries.
I have worked on assignment for a variety of different clients such as Steinway&Sons Hamburg, Bauer Stars & Stories, Bauer Publishing, IGEPA, European Commission, Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWI), Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI), ADC (Art Directors Club for Germany), SGS Holding Germany, Hermes, REWE, ECE Projektmanagement, Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung and more.
I am represented by the German photo agency VISUM.
