My photographs have personality. I’m known for a fresh, natural look of my images that are meticulously made.
It all starts with the equipment*. With the right mix of prime and zoom lenses I get the best results for all things I’m focused on. Whether it is the creaminess of a bokeh in a portrait, the sharpness of a fine detail or the wide-angle shot of an event I rely on my tools.
The right environment in combination with an atmospheric light setting is an essential key part as well. Because said in a simple way photography is catching light.
It all ends with my highly trained skills and techniques of digital retouching. I tastefully remove flaws and emphasise details, correct colours and lights, fine tune perspectives and geometry while preserving a naturally perfect look.
But why retouching at all? It’s a question people ask me a lot. That’s pretty easy to answer. We’ve viewing habits and there’s a difference in looking at someone’s face to face or at a photograph. The perception is totally different. You see more details, you pay way more attention on flaws, spots, winkles, eye circles, you name it. A camera just gives it’s own interpretation of the real world that mostly isn’t the result you would expect and – more important – accept. Retouching helps correcting this.
The basic idea is to get the very best out of my images that caters my clients’ taste and fits to their needs.
