“In a low-light environment, with my camera and a lot of good spirit.”

That’s how I would describe my work and approach as a filmmaker, especially as a DP and the situations I find myself constantly dealing with, which I love. I have clearly developed my own significant style from this. Grown as a person and as an artist while directing myself and the camera through challenging situations. Creating at the intersection of objectivity and contemporary, intimate aesthetics. Floating between a documentary and a cinematic film style with a deep love for clouds and details. I am higly intrigued by the genre of direct cinema and the question, if it does have to be in focus? 

I don’t have the feeling that it takes a lot for most productions to create something beautiful, something meaningful. It takes a bit of courage to stick to some principles, giving everything for the best idea, which ultimately doesn't have to be your own – and not mine either. Working as a team, sticking some heads together. From my perspective, that is what makes the difference.

Of course, I feel inspired by some of the greatest photographers, cinematographers and storytellers of our time, but I am driven by the desire to create. Influenced by several aesthetic concepts. Connecting the dots between different genres of film and photography. Letting you see the world through my eyes.

Creating looks and colors is something I really enjoy. I understand it as something that is inseparable from my work with the camera. Which I prefer to use with as much natural light as possible. 

To me, the right tools are an essential key to unlocking creativity in every production and within every workflow. Knowledge is crucial. From sketching the first idea, creating a mood and look to the final composition of the frame. I have learned to understand what it takes for everyone involved in the production to achieve the best possible results from the work I deliver and I know how to meet these expectations.

I know that I can rely on my taste, equipment and technical expertise.
