My photographs have personality. I am known for a fresh, natural look of my images that are meticulously made. ¶ It all starts with the equipment*. With the right mix of prime and zoom lenses I get the best results for all things I’m focused on. Whether it is the creaminess of a bokeh in a portrait, the sharpness of a fine detail or the wide-angle shot of an event I rely on my tools. ¶ The right environment in combination with an atmospheric lights setting is an essential part as well. Simply said photography is catching light. ¶ It all ends with my highly trained skills and techniques of digital retouching. I tastefully remove flaws and emphasise details, correct colours and lights, fine tune perspectives and geometry while preserving a naturally perfect look.
¶ But why retouch at all? It is a question people ask me a lot. That is pretty easy to answer. We have viewing habits and there is a difference in looking at someone face to face or at a photograph. The perception is totally different. You see more details, you pay much more attention to flaws, blemeshes, spots, winkles, dark under-eye circles, you name it. A camera just gives its own interpretation of the real world that mostly is not the result you would expect and – more importantly – accept. Retouching helps to correct this. ¶ The basic idea is to get the very best out of my images that caters my clients’ taste and fits their needs.
