Photography inspired me when I was 15 years old. A good friend of mine got a digital point n’ shoot camera as a birthday present. I was deeply impressed of the capabilities of such a small camera and instantly began to save my pocket money. I learnt more about photography by reading a lot and after the first thousand snapshoots and a couple of photoshootings with some friends, I realized that photography could be more than just a hobby.
After I passed the Abitur, I got the opportunity to assist several well-known photographers. Thus I understood that it is extraordinarily important to get a feeling for an appealing composition in addition to technical expertise.
Today I study and work as a freelance photographer in Dortmund Germany.
