Biography

I was born in 1994 in Rottweil, the oldest town in Baden-Württemberg. At the age of 14 I started taking pictures. With the compact camera of my parents I took pictures of all things that were interesting for me so I found my way into the photography. At the age of 17 I bought my own photo equipment and took pictures for a running and triathlon magazine while I was still at school. After I successfully completed the 2-year vocational school with the focus on economy, I started my apprenticeship as a portrait photographer with Ralf Graner Photodesign in my hometown Rottweil. During the three years of training I gained a lot of experience and was able to finish the apprenticeship in 2016 as chamber winner of the Chamber of Crafts of Konstanz. I wanted to face new challenges and started a two-year photo traineeship at the German Press-Agency (dpa) in Berlin in February 2017. For me it was a cool experience to capture big events in sports, politics and economic with my camera. After the traineeship I worked as a photographer near Frankfurt am Main for two years. In July 2020 I came back to my hometown Rottweil where I work from now on. I realizing commissioned work for my clients and realizing my own ideas and creativity. As a freelance photographer I also work for the news agency dpa, Bildkraftwerk, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), the triathlon magazine "Tri Time" and the motorsport blog "Dust In The Pit Lane".
