About me

Director of Photography / Camera Operator Works

I was born in Tübingen (Germany) and moved to Barcelona in the early 90´s to work on my first feature as a camera trainee. At the beginning I worked mainly in features and international commercials always in the camera department as AC. In between shootings I studied Photography at “Centre Estudis Fotografics de Catalunya” in Barcelona during 1994 – 95. I worked my way up though the ranks of the camera department gaining experience in framing, lightning, shooting and getting a intuitive eye for creativity and sensitivity. I was lucky to work and to learn from some of the best DOP’s in the industry during my assisting career: Janusz Kaminski, Wally Pfister, Benoit Debbie, Darius Khondji, Lance Acord, Stephan Fontain, Franz Lustig, Barry Ackroyd, Linus Sandgreen among others. As a creative thinker, good communicator and problem solver I frequently discovered unexpected ways to achieve and to build on each director’s vision. With more than 25 years in the film industry I have acquired great experience for coordinating and supervising complex shootings. I am equally comfortable photographing lower Budget independent films and large scale productions. I have gained a lot of experience in international car commercials as a Russian/Scorpio Arm operator. I love to explore and collaborate the diverse new styles and formats to create new visual expression on different ways as so in social media or other new medias. I am fluent in German, English, Spanish and Catalan … and a passionate catamaran sailor.
