I am a decorated ex US Navy Gulf War photographer veteran. I have photographed on land, underwater and in the air.
I currently photograph international bands, professional portraits (studio and location), advertisement and food as well as events, real estate (flats and buildings) and weddings (weddings - IF I KNOW you).
I simply ADORE photography and everything that goes with it!
I have been lucky enough to photograph on every continent except Australia and South America. My work is word of mouth only. No business card, no website.
Everyone always asks "Why no website?" WHY? I can post photos and you have NO IDEA if I took them or not.
Why not ask for references! Did I deliver on time? Was I cool? Was I fair in price? Was I fun? Was I professional?
The answer is yes. I have many repeat customers and bands (through the music companies). A few clients...
Presidents, chancellors, mayors, ministers, lords, admirals, rock stars, a US Supreme Court Justice, Johan Cruyff, Ronaldo, etc.
Companies and/or products in no particular order: Louis Vuitton, Red Bull, MAM Baby, Tupperware, Sony Music, BMG, Warner Music, Universal Music, The Vienna Stock Exchange, ORF, REMAX, Spencer Stuart, Carson Wagonlit Travel, HEAD, Capital Bank, MANY publishing houses, OMV, Jewelry (different companies), etc.

After 24 years, I cannot remember all of my clients. That's a good thing - the photos don't appear anywhere unless my client(s) desire that. Again, I'm word of mouth only.
I've been printed in over 100 newspapers around the world as well as locally, in Austria: Der Standard, Die Presse, FondsMagazin, Kurier, Medianet, Trend, Wirtschaftswoche, Wirtschaftsblatt, etc.
I speak English as a mother tongue, fluent German and some Spanish.
