Freelance Photojournalist


Born in Hamburg/Germany in 1965, aviation has fascinated me since 1979 (see my Retro page). 

I now work as a freelance aviation photographer and photo journalist for national and international aviation magazines and support various book projects of aviation authors (like Andreas Spaeth) and online aviation websites (Aeronews., Aviationsource, aeroTELEGRAPH, Aerobuzz, spotterguide) with photos.  

My print media clients among others include FLUG  REVUE, AERO International, aerokurier, Skyliner-Aviation (all Germany), Airways Magazine (USA) , Airliner World and Aviation News (both KeyPublishing, UK), Spotter Magazine (Malta), jetstream (Switzerland) and L+K Aviation and Cosmonautics (Czech Republic).

I am part of the v1images.com Aviation Media Team as Official Photographer. 

Living in Hamburg, the new produced Airbus aircraft at Airbus Hamburg are the focus of my work.

Photo trips mainly take me to Southeast-Asia.
