PHOTOGRAPHER & ART DIRECTOR
I am a professional Wedding & Portrait Photographer living in Ibiza, renowned for the modern, creative, fine art style. For the past 12 years I am photographing glamorous events around the globe for a high-end international clientele.
Conor McGregor, Gerry Weber, Nick & Simon, Roberto Martinez are among my beloved clients.
My first love was paint. After graduating from the Niederrhein University of Applied Arts in Germany I started a series of oil paint collections, that were exhibited in galleries around the world. After a show in Los Angeles, I had a unique opportunity to photograph a wedding.
Wedding photography slowly became a way to balance my classic art education with a love for beauty and exciting new digital technology. I wanted to capture timeless wedding stories as if in a dream and combine photojournalism, editorial scenes and relaxed portraits with perfect aesthetics, perfect angles and perfect moments.
Fine art wedding photography is challenging for a perfectionist, even when working in the malleable world of digital photography. I am lucky to have modeled for prominent European photographers, as these early experiences made me understand the unique connection between photographer and model. This connection is foundational, because if you feel connected, beauty and essence will come through photographs. Perfection still motivates me, but I’ve learned to embrace more the raw beauty of authentic emotion and connection.
I do not use filters with digital photography, and I do not like trendy editing. I prefer my images clean, timeless and elegant.
Becoming an Ibiza wedding photographer has been an exciting and unique journey. I’ve lived and worked in Germany, Italy, France, Greece, Russia, Indonesia, Japan and USA. I speak fluent English, German and Russian. I now run my photo studio in Ibiza, and I shoot destination weddings around the world.
