Scale Models

All there is to know about my biggest hobby, covering each model in full detail with blog-style updates, photos of the process, the finished work, and more.

Media Portfolio

So what motivated me to start my own business in the world of photography; The "shutter click" that started it all? From my very first image, the first clients and later on the expansion of the business into Media Design and Videography?

Media & Design

Starting with photobooks as a natural progression to present my photos taken over the years of various people, I quickly expanded my portfolio to include all manners of media & design, including posters, business cards, vehicle design, flyers, stickers, and websites.

Where it all began... What started with a small request in 2008, grew out to be more than just a hobby. Throughout the years I have honed my skills in go-kart photography and got results that stood their own.

As I moved to the USA in 2011 for my flight training, I took my cameras with me and began using my experience in a different field; Aviation. To me, flying is more than just a passion. If flying is one side of the coin, capturing it for eternal memory is the other.

Take a look at the full size example photos to see all the quality details.

Although my main focus lays on photography, I have experience in the world of videography as well. Most of my early video creations were for KartPark Emsbüren in Germany, for which I created promo and instructional videos. After my move to the USA in 2011 I started recording some of my more memorable flights (have a look in the Aviation Media section of this website) and my heliboarding trip to Canada.

Nowadays (almost) all of my video work is related to Brünhilda, including the full restoration series, which can all be found in Brünhilda's part of this website.
