Emotional, candid, natural, documentary-style, spontaneous, modern, artistic photography – tailored to your personality!
I’d love to meet you for a coffee – in a café around the corner, a park, the beach, at my home or at yours! If you live too far away to meet in person, we can always have a chat on Skype.
Without your consent I won’t upload any of your pictures (that show a person’s face or other recognisable features) to my website. I am over the moon if I’m allowed to share my favourite pics with the rest of the world – but your privacy always comes first.
I am more than happy to work out a personal price offer with you that fits your needs perfectly. No wedding is the same! The Wedding Packages below shall only be a guide to your personalised offer.
Christchurch or Queenstown, city or countryside, South or North Island, New Zealand, Germany or the rest of the world – I can offer you reasonable rates for any journey and I’m looking forward to many extraordinary locations!
… hmm no I can’t 🙂 … But photos in rain, snow or fog can be more appealing and charming than you think! As a professional photographer I don’t rely on “good” weather – any weather conditions expose their beauty when captured in the right way.
The packages and offers on this page are examples only.
Please make contact to receive a personalised offer.
Spring is a lovely time of the year to take family photos!
Secure your special spring offer for a relaxed photo session with your loved ones. Between grass and spring flowers, at the beach, in the forest or your home garden – show me your favourite place! For only $400 we will take the time we need, approx. 1.5-2 hours, and you will receive all images edited on DVD – no hidden costs for prints etc. If you want, I can also design Christmas cards, calendars or more for you. Book your family photo session today!
If you want I will be there from the beginning. I capture her nervousness when her hair is being done and she can’t even hold still, while he is trying to put on his tie for the first time.
I am at your side in all the important moments, as well as the ones that don’t seem to be. From the first guests arriving, the ceremony, reception, cutting the cake, to the first dance and a wild party.
Discreet, but always present, I try to capture the beautiful atmosphere of the day – in documentary style pictures of guests and the newly-weds as well as with plenty of details of location and decoration. And of course there is time for group photos for the family album.
An important place occupies the couple shooting, where you (and your bridal party, if desired) are the centre of attention, if possible for at least an hour. There are no limits to your imagination: I completely comply with your ideas and focus just on you. Just be yourself!
You receive all photos on DVD in high resolution for prints and posters, as well as in low res for email and web. The number of photos depends on the hours and location of the event, as well as the number of guests. A rough guide could be about 100 pics/hour.
The DVDs will be sent in a beautiful high-quality packaging.
I tweak the pictures in colour (as well as black/white), contrast, sharpness and image section.
You have the personal right of use for all your photos – you can make copies for guests, posters for your lounge or get a new profile picture on facebook – you can do with your photos whatever you wish. Of course I am always happy if you mention my name!
Please contact me to find out about your personal price package.
I am a big fan of photo albums! It is just an entirely different feeling than scrolling through files on the laptop…
The albums I use are photographically printed on real high quality matted photo paper, and excel through their lay-flat binding which allows for a varied, but simple and modern design.
The image hard cover of the album has a matte finish and is padded for additional protection and soft touch experience.
The large main album has a size of 28×28 cm (11×11 inch) and consists of 50-70 pages with a whole documentation of your wedding day (approx. 200-300 images). Additionally, you can opt for smaller identical editions (19×19 cm / 7.5×7.5 inch), which make perfect presents for your bridal party and family.
The finish of the optional gift box can be selected between glossy white and matte anthracite.
Travel expenses will be calculated individually. Most weddings around Christchurch won’t be charged additional expenses. For longer distances / overnight stays I can make you an offer at a reasonable rate. Travelling time is always included.
You are only planning a short event? Just need coverage of the ceremony? You are looking for a couple / family / pregnancy shooting? No worries, I am also available for shorter events. Just contact me so we can figure out the perfect offer for you.
As a child I grabbed my father’s analogue camera and experimented without rest until I had the outcome I had imagined. Priceless was the moment when the printed photographs were lying in front of me, memories captured on paper. Nowadays the surprise effect may be a bit less significant, but the fact to be able to freeze a moment of your life and make it unforgettable hasn’t lost any of its fascination.
I started with mainly nature and animal photography; while I was studying product and architecture photography became more important.
However, most fascinated I have always been by people. To be close without being intrusive; to observe, wait patiently and then capture this emotion in the perfect moment – that’s what inspires me!
I love concentrating on details – things that stay concealed to others when they pass by.
When I assisted my friend and colleague Tim Glowik (fotograf-konstanz.com) for the first time on a wedding, I was amazed – and I still am. The couple exchanging looks, being head over heels in love; tears running down the bride’s mother’s face; the guests’ incredible joy – rarely a photographer’s work gets rewarded so much.
In my photography I try to remain true to myself and my style – natural portraits as well as artistic compositions, always open for new ideas and equipped with a sense of humour.
I love making other people happy – and in photography I have found my perfect medium.
