Is there a story behind the foundation?
Not really a story. At some point the question arose, what do I do now? Self-employment, employment or freelance. At that time, I was in Dresden and had a kind of working flat with a partner. There I was annoyed by the fact that quality was not valued enough. The pictures were mainly supposed to be cheap. Then I had the idea in September 2015 and already in December I started the conversion here. Because I also wanted to come back to Forst. This is where my family and friends are.
Have media always been your “thing”?
Actually, I’m a trained carpenter. However, I have always been interested in photography. In the beginning, I took photos at parties with my mobile phone. At some point I got my first camera. Cool photos – I always wanted to take them.
What fascinates you about photography?
Sometimes people come up to me and say, “I’m so unphotogenic.” Showing these people, no, not at all, I show you how you really are, how you really look. That’s sometimes extremely rad on a shoot – to experience that transformation from: I don’t like photos of myself to – wow, I wouldn’t have thought that.
What I still enjoy extremely is that I can let off steam creatively, always come up with something new, reinvent myself and constantly create something new.
