Still Life/Product Photographer
I have been working for the past 5 years as a freelance Photographer. In the Still Life/Product field. Having been a designer has given me many advantages in my visual knowledge and I have very quickly understood the techniques of studio lighting and have also learnt from my experiences on set and with clients in the studio where I am based. As a Designer who has gone through many disciplines, willingly: to gain a wide variety of knowledge from all fields of Design. I like to think of myself of a very versatile creative professional. Using my experience in Design I wish to be the best designer possible using all areas of knowledge to aid me in all/any projects I carry out. Specialties: 3D CAD Modeler Product / Industrial Designer Digital Art & Motion Graphics Still Life and Product Photographer Bi-Lingual (German) 2D Animation & Motion Graphics 3D Animation (basics) Video: Filming & editing My latest Client is DM (Activ Beauty) a German Drugstore, with whom I do one shoot per month. Four shots of products from within their range for their in-store magazine. Each month a different style/theme.

As a designer I am working constantly on small commercial (and occasionally private) projects to keep the Design work flow and idea generation fresh. I have widened my skill base and started to become a more developed designer. Web design is a side of my business I am constantly striving to improve, not just for my own benefit but as another area for which I can work with any potential new clients.
The bulk of my work is currently Idea generation and Technical Design Concepts for the Automotive and Product Industry. Plastic being my main area of expertise.
A recent collaboration with id-entity designstudio (http://www.id-entity.de/#tab-b-star-sneaker) in Germany with whom I work with together on design solutions Projects and Concept Generation. This is an ongoing relationship that is constantly developing involving all aspect of both our businesses.
My work is based mainly in the Studio photographing products for magazines or advertising, but occasionally I get the privileged of working outdoors on location projects or on landscape projects.
Much of my work is commercial, however when time permits I also love to experiment in the studio with new projects designed to help promote my photographic business and also to learn new technique and equipment.
My over skill base cover the following areas of Photography:
Running of Photo Studio in Vienna, where I also work as a Photographer.
Working in the Video and short film industry for Television and Satellite Broadcasting. Producing everything from TV Skins for advertisements and TV spots, to full length Advertising spots in After Effects and Premiere.
Also my drawing abilities gave me the opportunity to do some Storyboarding and my Industrial Design Background made it easy to adapt my hand to Set Design for the studios in house and some for external customers. All be concetpualised on paper and later Modeled in Autodesk StudioTools and Rendered in 3D MAX for the final animation and stills.
A job where a lot of development was done on my Designing methods and skills; 3D modeling and the fine tuning of design, mainly. Both which improved greatly over my 5 years at the company. I have completed many successful products some of which are on the market today, and which a I am very proud of.
Since leaving Peschke Design I have moved into a more graphic orientated discipline.
