Do you prefer to work in the studio or outdoors?
"I like both. In my studio I have a lot of space and great opportunities, but it's always great to do your work on location. Of course, the background plays a bigger role here and must be included."
What are the main skills you need for your kind of work?
"As a photographer, you don't just have to take pictures. It is important that you get on well with people and instruct them. This is also a lot of fun for me and it's a new challenge every time."
Are you more drawn to the artistic or technical side of photography?
"I see myself more on the artistic side, but the technology also inspires me. A camera is a fantastic tool and you can do great things with it."
Which other photographers have you found inspirational?
"I don't have any direct role models. I find a lot of inspiration in normal life or by chance. I derive many of my photo projects in this way, and these ideas often mature over a long period of time before I implement them."
How much post-production work do you do on your images?
"I try to do most of the work in-camera. Every photo goes through a certain amount of post-processing, but I avoid montages or excessive interventions. For me, the camera is the route to success, not Photoshop. I look at Photoshop as a tool for optimising images, but don't use it to create my pictures."
