I am an international photographer and filmmaker, based in Vienna, Austria. I´ve spent 12 years as a media professional and radio host (after finishing tourism school, followed by 4 years in architecture) but photography and filmmaking were always part of my life and career and are my real passion. Since 2012 i am also proud Member of the renowned “Canon Abassador Programme“.
The same year, 2012, became my biggest challenge as i was facing cancer, but survived. As a result, i started shooting “Movember Portraits“, an ongoing series of celebrities with moustaches to support the idea of Movember.com. Besides my workshops i´m also running a photography online course and am booked as a speaker for several photography events. In 2014 i´ve been speaking and giving onstage workshops for Canon at the leading trade-fair photokina in Cologne.

Since i´m also a Dad of a 2 year old boy, i am used to foregoing sleep. I don´t need more than 3 hours of sleep anymore, which i thought could be interesting to know before you hire me ;-)
I believe, that photography and filmmaking is not only about a lot of gear and trying to get the best results in technical terms, but – much more – a way to tell stories, to move people, to make a lasting impression, to connect people. Besides my commercial work, i always try to find ways how to give back with photography. With projects like “Dogue“, a charity calendar for a animal shelter in hungary, or the “Movember Portraits” Calendar of Austrian Celebrities showing moustache for Movember.com we were able to collect about € 10.000,- so far and – more important – managed to bring these causes to the national media and create some attention for these topics.
I work for international clients like Smith Design USA, Canon Europe, Red Bull, Ikea, DDB Tribal and many more. See the “Clients” Tab for my client list. I´m offering full service Photography for Commercials, Portrait, Magazines as well as directing Imagefilms, Shooting Commercials and Music Videos (mostly for Rockbands. Guess i´m a bit Rock addicted?)
I love travelling, so don´t worry, you can put me on a plane and send me wherever you want on that beautiful planet.
