I am German born, New York based cinematographer, aerial DP and visual storyteller.
Over the past years I have had the honor to work with clients such as Apple, Porsche, Dodge, Toyota, Ford, Chevy, NOS, Google, Facebook, Pennzoil, IBM, Intel, Quickbooks, History Channel, Audemars Piguet, Comcast, New York State, ConEdison, Robin Hood Foundation and many more
I also take a lot of pride in working on my own personal ‘passion’ projects that reach from experimental documentaries such as “WOLAKOTA”, "EROSION" or "RAGE" to lose narratives like “THE LIGHT” to purely visual poems like "BALANCE", "STREETS" and "MOMENTS".
In any type of situation, whether it be a personal project with unlimited time to shoot or a high stress client project with a super tight turn around - I am always looking to create something cinematic, emotional and unique with my camera work.
There is an incredible amount of content out there these days. A lot of mediocre stories with poorly and randomly assembled imagery. There is also a fair amount of incredible stories - matched with very flat and unmotivated visuals. And then there are insanely beautiful pieces that are just completely lacking any content. Personally, I am looking for that sweet-spot of marrying the two - excellent storytelling combined with beautiful and cinematic visuals that let the viewer dive even deeper into the story and connect in a way that wouldn't otherwise be possible.
I hope you enjoy my work and please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, want to collaborate or hire me for a project.
Thanks a lot!
