Tell us a little about yourself and your photography.
I am a 40 years old photographer from Germany. My passion and
profession is fine nude art photography.
Nothing else inspires me more and it gives me the possibility to
create things which have no expiration date.
I started in 2005 with wedding photography and from 2008 I only do
fine nude art. My client list includes private, high-profile and
commercial customers. I own a spacious photography studio with
numerous sets, but I am also available around the world for
commercial or private nude art photo productions.
Why did you start taking photos?
I started taking photos when a friend got married. He asked me to
take the photos of his wedding. This was the beginning of my wedding
In 2008 a bride asked me if I could make nude art and boudoir photos
of her. I told her this was new for me but I would be very
interested in doing it. So we arranged a free photoshoot.
The results have been quite good so that I am concentrating more on
nude art photography than on wedding pictures.
Yeah – your nude shots are really special and sexy. What is
your secret to nude photography?
I do not think that my nude shots are really sexy. I do not focus on
the sexual side of women. I want to show the beauty and

If the model does not feel comfortable it is nearly impossible to
shoot a sensual picture.
You also do work on video. Can you tell me more about the
moving art video “more than nude”.
I actually do not produce the videos myself. The video you mention
is just a documentation of one of my exhibitions. My work has been
exhibited in many cities all over the world. Usually in galleries.
With this special moving art I wanted to transport the culture of
nude art to those people who usually do not visit galleries. So my
idea was that 30 persons in black suits with white gloves show my
pictures in the streets of downtown. The passers-by were very
surprised and the feedback was very positive.
Many people have not known before that nude art photos could be so
much more than just a nude woman.
What are some other photographic projects you enjoy working

and stylings. For example nude art calender productions for
What kind of a camera and lenses do you primarily use and
how do you select your equipment?
I shoot with a Nikon D800 currently, with a 36 megapixel resolution
it allows for a particular latitude in cropping.
Outdoor – I try as far as possible to take advantage of the
available light and use, where appropriate, filling flash and
Indoor – I prefer the use of multiple studio flash lights to get the
lighting situation just right.
Generally I do not focus too much on technology. The image concept,
the model, her posing and the light are much more important.
Can you name some tips for those who want to start as a
It’s hard. Of course talent and luck are indispensable. You have to
be patient and focus on doing quality work. Try to get better each
day. Open your eyes and mind.
