I am glad that you found the way to my sedcard. I have been involved with photography for approximately 30 years and was developing my negatives as well as enlargements myself in that days of analogue photography. I left this technique some time ago and turned to digital photography. However, my recording style has not changed dramatically from analogue technology. Even now, it is important for me to have a clear image idea in mind before pushing the trigger and also to have completed the camera settings as well as the examination for disturbing picture elements. As a result, I still shoot relatively few shots compared to the output of processed pictures. An essential goal of mine is always to make an artistic claim, even with part-nudes or nudes. I usually try to do that by creating unusually views and possibly also by exaggerating contrasts. Usually I like to work in the conception phase with a black and white implementation as a picture idea and as a further contrast element I love the contrast of the human body to architecture, stone facades or just the representation of the artistic nude on atypical places. In most cases, the representation of the face of the model is omitted in order to remove the personal element from the context.
Several times I already had the opportunity to work with ballet dancers. My goals for future projects are to transfer this graceful attitude as far as possible into the field of nude photography.
If you feel as a model of this basic idea appealed, no matter male or female, I would be very happy to hear from you.

I am also happy to help newcomer models to create attractive images for a successful appearance on Modelkartei.de or another model page. If the style coincides with my ideas, then I would just consider it as a joint project and produce the images without a fee.
If the project just involves the implementation of the model's ideas, the following costs are applied as a basis for an agreement.
Arrival and departure to the shooting location: 0.42 € / km plus 50 € / hour for taking the footage. For the processing of the pictures a lump sum of 10 € per picture is calculated. Under normal conditions, shootings take no longer than 2 to 3 hours. If the content is clearly defined, it is also possible to arrange lump sums.
For each shooting a contract will be created in advance, which regulates the following points for both sides.
• When is the shooting?
• Where is the shooting?
• What type of footage is the goal?
• For what purpose are the shoots going to be made?
• Is it a paid shooting for the models purposes or TFP (time for photos), or does the photographer pay for the model?
• Who of the two contracting parties is allowed to do what with the pictures?
• Who worries the accessories?
Frequently asked Questions:
• How does a nude shooting taking place in public spaces?
o Basically, it is my goal that the shooting in public space excite as little attention as possible and are no passers-by or other people in the area. For this reason shootings are usually scheduled very early in the morning. Furthermore, the light is much better at this time of day than during the day. The model is still dressed during the recording meeting and also at the first sample of the position and as well as the exposure is tested in advance. Only when everything is correct and the actual recording is to be made, it will be checked again whether passer-bys are in the area and then the model is going to undress herself and retakes the position discussed. As soon as two or three shots of this position are taken, the model dresses up again. Normally this only takes 1 to 2 minutes and then the model is dressed again. It is important that the model is wearing a light dress that can be easily and quickly put on and off again. In colder seasons, a warm coat is very convenient.
• Can I bring a reference person to the shooting?
o Yes, of course! Can also help to secure the location and create more confidence for the model, which can only lead to better pictures.
• How long does a shoot last on average?
o Normally not longer than 2 to 2 ½ hours. Of course, it also depends on whether there are longer distances or sidewalks between the individual locations.

o The pictures can be displayed on Modelkartei.de or Instagram.
o If the shooting is paid by the model, the scope of use of the images will be regulated in the contract.
