I started thinking up and visualizing stories at an early age with my S8 Beaulieu. Since the early 2000s I’ve been working on commercials worldwide as a German based Director and DoP. Most of my clients are in the automotive industry. When I’ve been offered the opportunity to work as a DoP on a documentary produced by Roland Emmerich – 35 Cows and a Kalashnikov – it didn’t take me long to accept. It was the beginning of a long, wild journey through the bright, glowing colors of Africa. So far I’ve been working in more than 20 african countries; from time to time even in the francophone part of Africa shooting TVCs mostly for their local market.
Today I mostly shoot with my own complete RED Dragon camera and stabilisation systems.
Often as a director and DoP but sometimes just as DoP.
