Profile

Since March 2013 I live in Mumbai, India, where I work as a freelance photographer, journalist and trainer for photography. My focus is on travel photography and photo documentaries. I enjoyed traveling at an early age, photography came a little later. After my training as a bookseller at the publishing house Herder in 1986 in Stuttgart, I worked for several years in the Herder bookstore in Rome and one year on the shrimp farm Aqua-Tech in Ecuador.

After that, I worked as an International Sales Director at the German publishers Klett and Kohlhammer. After several photography workshops and excursions I attended the photography course "Learn to See" with Volker Schöbel at the Free School of Photography Stuttgart in 2003/04, with which I started to realize my first own photographic projects. In 2009 I moved to São Paulo, Brazil, which meant the beginning of my work as a photographer and journalist.
