I am a cinematographer and multimedia producer based out of Cologne, Germany. My focus is on documentary filmmaking covering social, cultural and environmental issues worldwide. Ambitious projects with strong characters and captivating stories are what I love. I am interested in really showing what life is like for people affected by current events and thereby creating a narrative and impact that is more durable than daily news coverage. Understanding the world and its people – or at least trying to – is a great motivation. The projects I’ve worked on won numerous prizes such as the Austrian Film Award and the German Reporter Award and have been nominated as Best Foreign-Language Film at The Oscars. Throughout the past years I gained experiences working in harsh environmental, areas of conflict and demanding social conditions all around the world.
– strong stories – important issues – compelling images –
