Revised Websites and Online Shops


In the last few weeks I revise my website for applied photographic design including 
online shop and my other two online shops on Etsy and Dawanda, where someone can purchase work of my. My main website for my artistic work didn´t change.
In general the three sites offers photographic work. The work falls more in the catagory of applied photography and focus on nudes, urban, landscape images.
The shops offer a variation of motives with different sizes and image carries. But also individual wishes are welcome.

This website gives also a lot information about work in the fiel of applied photography and shooting informations 

The other two websites offer a wide variation of motives. They are ideal for home and office decoration or as a special gift.

Sunday Afternoon - Limited Calendar 2016 with nudes




This limited calendar with nudes and a circulation of only 100 copies, will be available from 15th of November 2015 on. 
Originally, these nudes should only serve as a template for paintings.
The shooting of the nudes took place in the one room apartment of the model, without major preparations such as lighting, cosmetics and scenes settings.
Therefore they don´t claim to be professional nudes in classical sense
But perhaps precisely because of that, these photos exude a natural intimacy and subtle erotic atmosphere at the end. The photo series was taken on a Sunday afternoon .From hence the title. 

Month wall calendar 14 sheets, 12 months (7 color and 5 b/w images) + 2 cover sheets
printed on one side 4/0 full color, A4 portrait (210 x 297 mm)
170g glossy high quality printing paper(metal spiral Wire-O bond)
High quality digital printing, Edition 100 copies, numbered 


Price Germany          9,95 € (postage included)
Price Other Countries 12,50€ (postage included)

A Shooting With a Difference

At the end of February 2015, I made a two days shooting with the Chinese model Jasmin. Part of the shooting belonged to the model own project " Temple of Orchid". Beside the model also the environment of rooms and location played in an important role.The photos are related to topics such as tea ceremony or mediation. Compare to other nude shootings I did before, also this shooting had much more the tendency towards erotic photography.
