Olga in Space

From that very efficient and fun day last year with the wonderful Olga Kobzar. You can find the first post here. I had the idea for this the second I saw the location. I wasn’t sure how far I wanted to take the editing, but I found a good measure for my first step away from Lightroom only editing after a long long time. Obviously apart from skin retouching every now and then. Really a direction I feel very good about. I will keep exploring. get back to telling more stories, even small made up ones. more to come soon.

Travel Photography – Tokyo (Part 3)

So i have written about my expectations before I got to Tokyo, I have written about my experience in Tokyo and what I took away from it. That leaves me with what I am looking for next time I get to Tokyo/Japan, because I really really need to get back there. If you haven’t guessed yet, I have really become a huge Tokyo fan. Number one on my list is for sure the Studio Ghibli Museum. A shame I missed it the first time around, hopefully I wont next time. Then the two most important point for me will be…

Model Photography – Olga

Last year, just by chance I stumbled over a few photo sets of Olga and knew that I wanted to work with here at some point. As luck seemed to be on my side Olga was going to be kind of close by for a photo workshop and we were able to arrange a shoot together. I am very happy with the results and I hope you will be too. Here the first set we shot. I want to talk more about photography with you guys and anyone who is interested. Communicate my process, talk about the technical side, gear, post processing…

Travel Photography – Tokyo (Part 2)

If you missed the first part of this Tokyo series of three you should check it out here —> Travel Photography – Tokyo (Part 1). As I was saying before, Japan really surprised me. And some of the things people normally would say are cliches hit the nail right on the head. Probably true with quite some of cliches, for so many other things too. Interestingly enough Tokyo is the cleanest Metropolis I have seen so far and I am not too sure how they pull it off. Especially when you compare it to cities like Berlin, Paris and New…

Travel Photography – Tokyo (Part 1)

Not sure where to start. This trip was very special in more than one way. Tokyo, as is Hong Kong, has been on my bucket list for a long long time. And when we started looking into where to go for a vacation it was between Tokyo and Hong Kong. We decided on Tokyo in the end because of a couple of reasons. All of them gut decisions of course. As so many other people I got interested in, specifically, Chinese and Japanese culture through movies. From classic Hong Kong films to early Anime films and TV series. My first…

Travel photography – To the North-cape and back (part one)

This is one of those trips. Probably a once in a lifetime thing. Especially in this shape and form. Mercedes-Benz organized another fantastic roadtrip and this one went a little beyond everything we have done so far. What I have done so far for sure. The main trip was planned to promote the the GLE and take a group of around 22 Journalists, Bloggers, Instagramers from Kitzbühel in Austria to the North-cape. an at least 4000km Journey. The group was a fantastic mix of people from all over the world. Russia to South Africa, Italy, France and so on.

Model Photography – Leila rough ‘n tough

It has been some time and you are about to get hit hard! Leila Lowfire is back and we’re going to rock your world. There is a lot of stuff coming up in the next few weeks, too. I was home for a while now and had time to work through a lot of stuff that fell somewhat behind. From a lot more model work to road trips, travel work, Hasselblads and so on. You are in for a ride, but for now enjoy the photos I took of Leila last year. Set three of five that I have posted here….

Model Photography – VerjinyaLee

Back when I was in NYC for the MBRT15 Roadtrip I wanted to at least do one model shoot and was very lucky to have VerjinyaLee recommended to me. What a fun shoot and I think it shows. I am very happy with the results, especially as we only shot for quite a short amount of time. Always so much fun to create beautiful work with great people. Check out her portfolio over at http://verjinyalee.tumblr.com and let me know what you think.

Travel photography – #MBRT15 road trip.

It was that time of year again and I was, for the first time, on my way to Alabama. Birmingham, Alabama to be precise. To meet up with a group of Bloggers, journalists, photographers and videographers to drive all the way up to New York City and the New York Autoshow. We would be “guarding” the brand new GLE from A to B and produce some beautiful work along the way. As so often on group trips like this time will be limited, so you can’t go totally bonkers and should be thoughtful of the others. Also the time table…

Car photography – Split decisions #mbrt15

I have written a lot about road-trips and I have been on many and a few weeks ago it was time to hit the road. This time with Mercedes-Benz again. “Guarding” the new GLE from its birthplace in Tuscaloosa, Alabama to New York City. This post is kind of a teaser. Seven photos, six conceptual, one typical. I had a great plan. I also misjudged the trips timing, by a lot. Besides the split photos I had planned another type of shot. And it does only look good as a full set, which did not happen. Ah well. You win…

Car Photography – Ferrari FF rough ‘n tough

In a perfect world the Ferrari FF would be the perfect photographers car. My workhorse. It seats four-ish people if it has to and has a quite big boot. It is very fast and gives the people sitting in the front seats a lot of space in its luxurious cockpit. I can tell that you can tell that I am a big fan of the FF. Also from its looks it is the most beautiful modern Ferrari so far. I shot this series of photos on one of the evenings of Photokina last year and I had a quite specific…

Model Photography – Leila Lowfire

When visiting Berlin for a trip with a friend of mine I had the pleasure of shooting with Leila. As with Nikys shoot we spent a couple of hours shooting with different outfits in a Studio space in Berlin. These are the first of a beautiful series of results. A lot more to come, including some shots from my Hasselblad 500cm and my Fuji Instax. Enjoy! Oh and make sure to visit Leilas Page for more of her work.

Teymur Visuals x BMW R nineT x Heldth

I don’t know if you know this feeling. Maybe it is something extremely gear head specific, but there is something to be driving alone in a car or on a bike in the middle of the night. No specific destination in mind. Rollin’ as the kids used to say. Since even before I had my license (psssssssst), I enjoyed cruising through the streets and out of the city on country roads to clear my head. No matter if I was depressed because of a girl or being stuck trying to finish a paper or anything in between. Of course it…
