Imagevideo for a language program for international students in Germany.
The Language Academy Aachen has a summer course program for students who want to study in germany. Every year from July till September they offer a language course in combination with lots of excursions and fun activities. During the summer of 2013 I joined many activities and the language lessons to capture enough footage for a video which shows the variety and the benefits of this education/holiday program.
It was great time with students from all over the world!
Now for the upcoming season I finalized the video with subtitles so that hopefully many future students will be choosing the Aachener Sprachsommer.
The Bookfare in Leipzig was a really nice experience. I had no expectations and so it was a great weekend. We had our first 2 official readings with “theJourney” (www.theJourney.com.de). It was not easy to choose the right chapters but very cool to see that people seem to like the book.
The first reading one was in collaboration with STA-Travel. Thanks a lot to Franzi and the rest of the Team! We hope there will be more readings in other cities with STA soon.
The 2nd one was on the last day of the fare and I didn’t expect many people to come, especially because there was a break in the reading booth before… But finally another 20 people showed up.
All in all: Leipzig is a great City. A good mix of history and modernity – in all aspects.
And hundreds of events like readings, music and poetry slam all over the city make it even more exciting to wander around and enjoy this weekend dedicated to the written word.
And the Manga Comic Con was for sure the most entertaining part of the book fare. I didn’t know it was too until we arrived and saw all these crazy dressed up people in really crazy complex costumes…
The last weekend was a long weekend.
But it was really successful and I am sure the whole team really enjoyed these few days working together.
In an old factory building in Duisburg we recorded the new Show of Paddy Kelly for a DVD release. An old industrial atmosphere combined with a perfect light performance made this solo act a really impressive concert experience. I was there with a team of 7, almost everything went smooth as planned so that we achieved really good results with a comparatively small technical setup.
At this point I want to thank my camera crew Stefan, Octavian, Dirk, Patrick, Shawn, Moe and the audio & production crew Sven & Dirk with their team and our light-designer Rene for his amazing work. It’s been a lot of fun working with everybody and I look forward to starting the editing now.

I was asked again to photograph new Corporate Portraits for Edudip. They are mainly used on their company website. We didn’t want to go with basic profile pictures, so we choose to combine some really “boring” black&white photos at everybodys desk with some more friendly and colorful hover pictures.

Welcome home is a new project I created with and about Angelo Kelly, a musician who recently settled down in Irelands countryside. The series is about their first month in their new life, the rebuilding of the house, the learning about a selfsufficient lifestyle and for sure about making music together as a family.
I spend about 15 days with them in their new home to shoot the series. We visited many different people and so I had a great chance to get to know an Irish lifestyle which is really different to what you know from middle-europe! It reminded me a lot to some places I visited in Australia. (except the rain and the cold…)
You can find the series on Angelos Youtube channel
There will be a new episode for 7 weeks from 1st February till 15th March. Each episode runs for about 10 min.
Here is the first episode on my vimeo:
“Alles aus der Werkstatt” is a scientific comedy show. It was a 3day shoot on different location where I was hired as still photographer.
So within experiments with Coke cans, burning wine glasses and botox shots, I guess everybody had some nice work days.

Ireland in the winter… Great. That’s what I thought in the beginnning. But finally it was really fun!
I spend in total 2 weeks of shooting in Ireland for a new Project with Angelo Kelly.
Due to the very mild winter here we had pretty nice days. So it was no problem to shoot outside at different locations.
I’ve been here 3 times already so far, but never made it to stay a couple of days in Dublin. This time I drove through the city two time with the airport shuttle bus. I seems to be a cool town! But again, unfortunately there was no time to use some more days, as I had to get back home to start editing right away – because the due-date is 1st Feb.
Next time, for sure, I’m gonna stay to check out irelands capital with all its irish pubs
Finally I can launch my new portfolio website. Find a variety of videos and photographs in the showroom section.
Here will be a selected part of my work. If you wanna see more check out my vimeo and flickr account.
