Leila LoFi – Model and Photoshop stuff

I was playing around in Photoshop a bit and trying some stuff and remembered I had these photos lying in last years Lightroom library. One thing added to the other and bandaning badabum we have a nice LoFi (80s/VHS) effect.

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.

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.
