I am a cinematographer 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 conditions from the Jordanian desert to the Bolivian Andes.
– strong stories – important issues – compelling images –
