Basic details
self portrayal englishAs a cameraman I work mainly on documantary and feature films.
In the last years on feature-film-productions I mainly work as a 2nd unit cameraman and still photographer. This combination became very luck for the production and me as well: I am always on the set and can jump, if necessary, from one job the the other.
In documtaries I try to concentrate my camerawork on the individuality and dignity of the people in front of the camera. Setting up lights in documentaries, the long experience on feautre films is a great help, but with very little equipment.
