About the quality of my work, I let other people have their say:

“You did this excellently. [...]
This has by far exceeded our high expectations. The light, the combination of camera movement and stillness had feature film quality, and it lived up to the grand occasion in this small format – which is almost impossible.
Thank all of you very, very much. Phantastic!”

Claus Kleber, editorship of ZDF heute journal

“Thank your for yesterday. Was praised a lot! Thank you for the cool pictures!”

Winnie Heescher, Editor, ZDF Studio Capital Berlin

“Thank you very much for your ever excellent pictures of the German parliament. To stay motivated over years as you are, and evidently always giving the best, is more than can be expected. Honestly: Respect!”

Lars Seefeldt, Editor, ZDF Studio Capital Berlin

“Our film has been approved yesterday. [...] It was all perceived well – and more importantly, it looked top!
I would like to thank you cordially for your excellent work, and it was a pleasure working with you again.”

Andreas G. Wagner M.A., Hick Pix Bewegtbildproduktion

“As a result of our debriefing, I can to tell you that we liked your on-rep from the border post very much. [...]
And the realisation with two cameras: Respect!”

Achim Fluhrer, ZDF-Mittagsmagazin

For you to get an impression by yourself, you find examples of my work here.
A showreel of cameramen often is a mix-up of many colourful pictures, dubbed with synthesizer music. I find that boring and it doesn’t tell you much. To the contrary, here you find work examples that illustrate how I solved the specific task. Look and enjoy!
Clicking on a picture that interests you gets you to the video.
