When did you first think of becoming a photographer?

10 years ago I began to shoot landscape-photos with a digicam. In 2013, after studying engineering, a completely different non-creative thing, I realized I should shoot people, couples and weddings more often and risk to make a living from that work.

Has wedding always been a major focus of your photography?

No. My first wedding was horrible. :)

How would you describe your style?

It´s always hard to describe the personal style. Maybe a kind of natural, emotive, sensitive. But I know that a lot of photographers describe their style in that way :).

If someone is interested in wedding photography, what would you recommend they try doing to get into the field?

Try to gain as much experience as possible as a second shooter or assistant before you handle a wedding day on your own. It is a very responsible job which offers a lot of magic but can be quite tough at times.

What kind of equipment do you use now, and what did you start with?

I started with a Canon 60D + Sigma 30mm. Now I use Canon 6D + 24/35/85mm, always fixed-LENGTHS.

Who are some of you favorite photographers past or present?

I never ask myself that question. I wouldn´t say that they are my favorites, but I like some work of Jeremy Cowart, Sam Hurd and Hafenliebe.
