I've been living and working in Hamburg, Germany since 1990. I was born and grew up in the USA, where I entered professional photography after studying art.
A good picture needs more than a good eye and a good camera. It needs the photographer's unconditional interest in the subject. I strive to understand what makes your company, your products or services special. That way I can perfectly capture and express all this in photographs and video images.
I am absolutely fascinated by industry!
That's why I ask lots of questions before and during an assignment, always learning useful and relevant details. Did you know, for example, that a bottling facility can fill up to 60 thousand bottles per hour? That a steel coil can weigh up to 30 tons and still be lifted with magnets? That a bio-bank stores tissue samples at -86ºC?
There's a great deal to experience in the world's rich business, industrial and research venues.
These visual clues help me in my photographic work to get your message out.
And when I'm not out and about for my clients, I teach future art directors at a leading art college. Teaching and explaining to others helps me stay on top of current trends, and helps me to better understand core concepts. And it's fun. I highly recommend it for any skilled professional.

Industrial plants, production lines, control centers, product development, research laboratories, warehouses, company headquarters - and the people who work there - that is my world. I photograph and film across many industries, on location in company offices, in manufacturing facilities, laboratories and research facilities, often as a welcome guest at locations where clients’ products and services are in use.
