After finishing school in Paris and a short stay at the University of Sussex, I finally enrolled at the London Film School.
Out in the real world I started out in reportage photography resulting in an exhibition in London at The Gallery Westland Place about Human Rights Issues sponsored by The Body Shop. After a year-long stint directing a number of pop-promos for Kosmo Records covering their Rave & Cruise Tours through Europe and Africa, I ultimately got serious about moving images working my way up the ranks in the Camera Department assisting many great DOPs and eventually got to light commercials and corporate films.
Coming from a reportage background I prefer a rather informal and subtle approach without too much staging and the use of available light whenever it makes sense. I believe the power of an image can be achieved by capturing the right moment rather than forcing it too much. .
I live in Munich with my wife and two children.
