As a photographer in Seattle, a rainy city, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and embrace the rain by testing water effects in Studio. I was fortunate to work with a fantastic and talented team who have helped me realize the idea. This session was our aim to show not only the beauty of women but also the strength, bravery, and courage.

For this image I got my step daughter to model for me. She understands my sometimes very not very clear directions, and is brilliant to convey the mood I try to get across.

I got the chance to shoot with Nina, an amazing model from the region of Bern, Switzerland. This picture was taken during day light at the entrance of the castle Thun, a Swiss heritage site of national significance.
This kind of pictures fit perfect to my model Nina. She is beautiful with a perfect, sporty body. We made several stunning photos this day but this one, called "I feel good" ist my personal favourite of the whole series.
Only natural light was used.
This photo was taken by chance. I was walking through nature with Merlin when he suddenly struck a pose in front of an old house and I just managed to capture it.
Aletha wanted some running photos. This is what we created together in my studio. We did a lot of different poses, portraits and some actions. This was the best out of this series. I used some color gels for the effects.
Here we are in a delicious and picturesque little town in Brazil. Many colors make the frame to Rita's smile, my favorite model.
This photo was taken at sunset in Shoeder vineyards in El Chañar, Argentina. The day was warm and the place was like a dream. My daughter was happy to run all over the place.
Working with Pascal (@iam_unexpected) was such a pleasure! Not only is he an absolute professional model, but he just knows how to pose creatively and add additional frames and dimensions with his hands. I love, how his posing is enhancing the body paint.
Caro & Marina, two of my models from the first beginning 1,5 years ago...we grow together to something special ;-). This shooting wasn`t planned, Saturday the idea, Sunday the shooting.
You simply sink into his wonderful eyes.
I have reduced the picture to it’s essentials his awesome facial expression.

This portrait was done locally at a beach it Little Elm, Texas! We used (1) 600EXRT flash with a small softbox attached. Canon Mark IV 24-70mmL 2.8 lens. The journey was playing in the sand. When we called her name I captured this beautiful image.
A mystical/arty bridal shoot with Carolina in Stockholm, the idea was to create a mystical mood to the scene so we added some smoke and nature added some rain.
thanks to the model @mellaa_rk - she is so talented and inspiring.
for this photo, we just went into a car park. I wanted to create some depth with her hand in the foreground which is out of focus and the unsharp background. I liked the symmetrical and non-symmetrical lines around the "moving" model. for the color grading, i chose a brown tonal look.
special thanks to @werkraum.bielefeld for pushing me to a higher level in portrait photography.
This photo was taken in Open door Argentina I a field of wildflowers that bloom during spring. It was sunset and the light was beautiful.
My very first attempt to create a colorful Makeup with Holi-Powder and lots of Hairspray. Today, I am really happy about, how good it looks on Julia (@photo.jules237)
I love how this picture turned out. This fabulous being glows in it’s beauty. This young Italian girl is slowly turning into an adult.

I took this photo during my family vacation in Neuquén, Argentina. My daughters who live in an apartment during the year were enjoying the outdoors and nature. One day we found a butterfly that could no longer fly because its wing was broken. There I thought that there are many things that despite being broken are still beautiful.
