Germany did it again – and also the fans

That’s it. The football worldcup in Brazil has a winner and luckily Germany is it! The German team has always been great at tournaments, so much so that in Germany they call them the Turniermannschaft, or tournament team. But they haven’t always played great. There were times when the way …

New playground on Tumblr

I have been pretty inactive writing new blog articles on my webpage recently. The reason is: I finally discovered TUMBLR! Well I should probably mention that I told a very good friend who is also a photographer that I wasn’t on Tumblr and he gave me a very dispraising look …

Light flash mob at Tempelhof in Berlin

Without any doubt: Berlin’s former airport Tempelhof is the city’s greatest public park! There is no other place like Tempelhof. Everyone who has been there is stunned by the warm atmosphere, the big clouds and the massive amount of space. And it’s not only perfect in summer. Tempelhof is the …

Concert photos: November 2013

Phew, what a busy month! In November I photographed 21 artists over 16 evenings – and that’s not including two other evenings when I arrived too late to be allowed to take pictures, oops. So I practically went out for 18 nights. Yes, I am exhausted! But yes, you guessed …

Concert photos: September 2013

Well, I took a summer break from taking pictures at concerts, because I felt too old to sleep in tents for three days in a row at festivals, haha! Look who I photographed in September – by the way I enjoyed Anna Calvi’s gig the most, as in my opinion …

Wedding: Eva & Jan

I love to shoot weddings and I felt flattered when I got asked by Jan if I would like to take pictures at his and Eva’s wedding. He admired the pictures I took in New Zealand and thought I might be the right addition to a perfect wedding. What a …

I met ME the band

The absolutely wonderful four piece band ME (the band) from Melbourne, Australia invited me into the studio in Berlin yesterday, where they’re currently living. I witnessed the shoot for their newest track “Sleepwalker” and was able to document the whole day from setting up the instruments, backgrounds and special effects …
