I started my little company in 2009 working from my living room. Conrad and me had 60 square meters on paper (which was maybe 55 in reality) and my old secretary table was standing in our living room. I edited my first sessions on my 13″ Inch Samsung laptop (where I also worked on during my whole study period) and I was sitting somewhere inbetween the TV and the dirty dishes in the kitchen. When we moved in 2010 I got my first little office space as we have a 3 room apartment now. Read the full post
Last Saturday was a special day as I opened my first own exhibition. Thanks to the museum it was perfectly prepared. It was wonderful to see how many people came to enjoy the opening. It was a very special moment to me – which fits perfectly to the title of the exhibition “The small moment”. Read the full post

When I was looking back at 2011 I was looking at things that I improved and things that I still need to improve. During this evaluation I saw that I started using some programs in 2011 that really changed my life and way of working. I am not a photographer who teaches other photographers but maybe I can inspire one or the other with this post and maybe somebody is just in search of this one program to improve themselves.
One program that really improved my workflow was “Photo Mechanic“. It makes your picture selection after a wedding easy as a pie (though baking pies is still a miracle for me) and fast as a train. Read the full post
Begin November I had the chance to attend the wonderful workshop of Mike Larson. Please find here some pictures of the fantastic location and decoration and us “models” getting ready.
It was such a good experience to stand in front of the camera this time and such a fun to do this together with great friends and learn at the same time.

Two weeks ago I have participated at a small fair of weiper friseure in Germany. Like usual I get the best ideas to present myself just two days before the event.

As I could have expected the brochures arrived a day too late and I was forced to work with business cards and a slideshow which worked out great. Read the full post

In July I attended the wonderful workshop of Christine Meintjes. I once read that she calls her workshops “Funshops” instead of “Workshops” and that is so true: it was a lot of fun. It was a great experience to hear about her story and how she became what she is today. I really learned a lot. Next to the theory there was a also a fabulous styled session. When I was thinking about what to write about this workshop I figured that this session was the hardest part and the best school of this workshop. To make clear what I mean I want to start this with a quote. Read the full post
