My carear in film started long before I became a cinematographer and my obsession with the dramatic came long before that. Growing up in a family of opera singers and appreciators, has had a profound effect on my love for drama. In the end it's all about building tension. Which is a key ingredient in my work.
My abilities go beyond handheld, long lens and drone operating. Having a professional past in both post production and the art department show that I'm equally sufficent technically as I am artistically.
Today I'm a director with the German production company SeeTree, run by award winning Producer Claudia Zenkert and a member of KMG Global Crew.
