Few Words About Myself Michel's high passion

I´m a professional people- and lifestylephotographer. I have been living and working in Berlin, Germany for more than 20 years, inspired by the city´s vibrancy, creative scene and cosmopolitic lifestyles.

In 2023 I moved to Rosenheim, Bavaria, located at the border of my beloved mountains and close to München/Munich. Nevertheless my Berlin office will go on existing as a second base for assignments in the capital.

After a two-year stay in Barcelona, Spain, where I worked as an assistant to Spanish photographers and took up first assignments from German magazines, I graduated from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Dortmund, where I received the Kodak-Award for best Newcomer-Photographers in 1998 for my graduate project. In 1999 I moved to Berlin and started my business with first assignments from advertising agencies.

My commissioned work includes portrait-, people- and travel-photography, advertising campaigns and editorial publications.

But, speaking most personally, the greatest gift for me is that I can link my passion for wild outdoor activities to my work as a photographer. Already in the early years of my life I lost my heart to the mountains – you still find me hiking, freeclimbing, alpine climbing and ski-touring or freeriding whenever I can.  My past career as a triathlete equipped me further with endurance and a strong, lasting connection with all kinds of sportive outdoors activities.  This is why you will find here that the heartpiece of my photographic work covers outdoor adventure and mountainsports. I just love capturing the unity of people, nature, atmosphere and landscape when I take my camera outside.

What do you need? Michel's Equipment

Experience and creativity is what matters, but of course you need some stuff to realize your ideas…

when we don't shoot on location ? Michel's Studio

Due to my preferred work most of our shootings are on-location. But whenever a studio session is coming up, there is a cosy coworking-loft my team and I share with other photographers. It is located in a historic brick factory building, breathing the charming spirit of „Old Berlin“. Famous clubs like „Anita Berber Bar“ and „Panke Club“ or „Tangoloft“ are our neighbours in the same building.
