Teen "models"

They want to present themselves in a new light and show the world that they already feel grown up. But is every pose suitable for every age?

This is a decision that every photographer has to make on his/her own, but for me it's always some kind of a balancing act. I always try to consult the wishes of my young "models", but in the end I'm the one who is responsible for what the photos look like and that the posing doesn't look inappropriate for the age of the "model".

Here are two examples from my last teen - shooting ...
in the end it's the mix that counts!

Wedding photography

The probably most important day of your life wants to be captured, if only in bridal couple portraits (with and without parents and / or witnesses) after the wedding (next to the church, the registry office or at another location) or as a photo - documentation that reflects the day, or just the ceremony.

Please note, if you like to have the ceremony captured at church or at the registry office, to clarify the following things in advance:
1. Ask the the pastor or the registrar if
flash – photography is permitted during the ceremony.
- Based on my experience, working without flash in dark spaces (e.g. at church) is very difficult and often leads to the fact that a good quality of the images can not be guaranteed
- Unfortunately, the same applies even with flash for very dark churches and premises, because even the best photo equipment has its limits in low light conditions.

2. An other advantage is, if I'm allowed to move freely within the premises during the ceremony, because that's the only way to shoot different motifs / scenes.
- The bride and groom are usually bound to a single position during the ceremony, and without me moving around it is hardly possible to photograph various subjects

Further information:
A wedding is not a press conference, thus, it is rather disturbing, though countless other people take pictures during the ceremony (especially in church), this should be coordinated with the guests by the bride and groom in advance

I rather work with reserve for not producing the above-mentioned impression or to disturbe the ceremony, but still capturing all important moments, so that a temporal sequence in the photos can be seen, but I try as far as possible to stay in the background.

The - art - community supported by Spiegel Online is certainly one of the more exclusive communities on the market. Unlike many other photo communities, where you can upload all photos you want, the photos here have to be accepted and released by the editors before they appear on your profil.

I published at some photos of my fashion- projects. Once again I worked with minimal equipment only and remained faithful to the style of "natural - light - photography".

Since a couple of days, one of the first photos of my current project, "Yellow" is now to be seen on my profil at, more will follow!

So regular visiting is worthwhile! ;o)

I would also like to thank the girls (no models, but friends) who‘ve done a great job, especially because they felt so uneasy in the beginning of being in public with their styling... but I think the result speaks for itself!
