Concert photography is my way of capturing the essence of high energetic live performances. While I am an amateur I have a professional attitude towards photography. I am a concert photographer by passion …!
I am located in Frankfurt am Main, right in the centre of Germany and Europe. This advantagous location is a perfect starting point for attending small and large scale concerts.
Since the early 80’s, when my dad took me to concerts of Frank Zappa, Miles Davis and Queen, I am a fan of live events. In 1989 I started my “photography career” when buying my first SLR camaera.
On October 21st 2003 I got infected by the virus of concert photography standing in the first row of the Hammersmith Apollo in London while rocking to the sound of AC/DC and taking pictures with a small point and shoot camera. Since then I have been to many rock shows shooting partly with my Canon G9/11 from the audience. On other occastions I am holding a photopass and using my large scale Nikon SLR camera.
Even though those pictures from the audience cannot compete qualitywise with pictures taken with a SLR from the photo pit they do transport more of the original “live” spirit. And they cover the entire show while the photo pit usually has to be left after the third song. Thus you will experience the thrill of the concert peak time when viewing some of my galleries.
