Best of 2017

Looking back on the year 2017, I realize how it was filled with wonderful assignments that were in fact mainly music related. There was the shoot for musician Florian Luig on top of the famous bunker in the middle of Hamburg where an incredible morning mist set an almost unreal background.


Then another very-early-morning shoot for Hanni Schäfer and her project VLUDE with some of my favorite portrait shots so far.



I also got to take pictures of the band AYU at Lunatic Festival (Lüneburg, Germany).


Then there was the surprising feature in National Geographic Traveler that used one of my Finnish Lapland photos to cover an entire page.


Lastly there were a couple video projects that I really enjoyed. Those were studio live videos of very different musical styles. Quite a bit of jazz with the amazing contemporary jazz band Tubes & Wires lead by Niels Klein, another jazz quartet around Christian Frentzen and some behind-the-scenes footage for my friends at Grammophon Jazzband.


On the other spectrum was pop music by Ben Galliers and the upcoming single video for the Cologne-based band Schlagsaite (super excited to share!).



Christmas Session

Today I’m sharing two shots from a pre-christmas session last December. It’s been definitely one of the sportier shootings, running & jumping through the apartment. FUN! :)

Olympic National Park

This year, I spent a full month in the US traveling through Minnesota, Washington, Oregon and California. One of many highlights of the trip was Olympic National Park and its vast landscape and beauty. Not all of the pictures made it into my portfolio, so for everyone interested in seeing a little more, here are my favorite shots.


This was our view from the Faireholme Campground at Lake Crescent. We took the canoe out on the lake and it was tougher than I thought coming back against the wind. Breathtaking nature at its best.

The next morning we drove up Hurricane Ridge Road and passing by 7000ft high mountains on both sides.

We were lucky with our rental car, by the way!  I was looking up prices for convertible Mustang’s before and, after being confronted with the actual prices, decided to go with a regular ‘economy class’ car. We were incredibly lucky though, since this was a free upgrade! The car we initially were supposed to take turned out to have a broken window and this was the only other car available at the location. It definitely enhanced the experience of driving these curvy roads up the mountains…



Another view on the dense forest stretching out into what feels like forever.

When you arrive at the almost 6000ft high parking lot you have a gorgeous 360° view of the mountain panorama. This picture shows a glacier on the neighboring mountain top.
Incredible colors and really beautiful light convinced me to carry my full camera backpack with tripod attached for our 2 hour hike.

This is a panorama composed from 13 shots. Its original dimensions are 14823 x 4773 pixels. Click on the picture to see it larger.


Shooting Dan Presencer

Here are some of the shots of Dan Presencer, a Copenhagen-based singer/songwriter, which were used for his recently released self-titled first EP. Check it out on facebook.

Copenhagen B&W

I’ve been living in this city for over 2 years now and I haven’t really taken a lot of pictures of it yet. That’s a shame and today I decided to change that. Unfortunately my battery surprisingly died after only a couple shots and the extra battery I had with me lasted only for a couple more. I didn’t use my camera much during the last couple weeks and after the last assignment I must have forgotten to charge all batteries up again. Well, lesson learned!

Luckily I still got a couple shots out of the trip. The area I went to is called ‘Fisketorvet’, close to the water that devides Copenhagen and is the reason for the beautiful bridges. The city built a relatively new bike bridge which I find really fascinating. I will try and get a lot of different shots of it soon!
