„Nothing is more amazing than the simple truth, nothing is more exotic than our environment, nothing is more imaginative than the practicality. And there is nothing more sensational in the world as the time in which one lives.“

– Egon Erwin Kisch

I have been working as a freelance cameraman for over 25 years. Reports and documentaries are my main focus (more than 50 films with a length of over 30 minutes have already been made). But as a DOP I am also enthusiastic about industrial, image, marketing and medical films and shoot magazine articles of all kinds (I also like scientific and technical topics, after all I am a graduate photo engineer). And I also look forward to filming with children, the elderly and the sick, topics where empathy and patience are important.

Working together with professional and nice colleagues, interesting topics, technical and cinematic challenges, and all this worldwide – this mixture makes my job exciting. I am very grateful to be allowed to exercise this beautiful profession! So if you are looking for an experienced, curious, friendly and motivated cameraman with excellent equipment – you have found him on top!

A little bit of „philosophy“

As a cameraman, you should have several talents: to deal with the camera technology blindfolded, the perfect control of light, cropping and movement are self-evident. Fun with technology also helps.
In addition, there are human qualities: often the sensitive handling of the protagonists determines much more about the success of the shooting than „only“ the technical-artistic aspects. A friendly, empathetic team often „gets closer“ because they know when it’s time to keep distance. To make people feel confident and not to betray someone’s trust – a constant goal of my work.

That’s why I only work with experienced assistants who belong to the top class, both humanely and professionally. I would be happy to hear from you!

You can book me: as a cameraman, on a 10-hour basis, or for larger projects as a lump sum. Preferably with equipment. Or as a camera team incl. assistant (no interns, no trainees, only skilled personnel!) and team vehicle (VW Sharan Euro 6d Temp), as well as modern own technology in all common formats.
