  • numerous international photography awards
  • exhibitions in New York, London, Paris, Dublin, Bucharest, Rome and Berlin
  • voted twice among the “20 most influential street photographers”
  • published on the big photography wensites like Petapixel, Digitalrev or The Phoblographer
  • co-founder of the berlin1020 street photography collective
  • +200k follower on social media

May be even more important: I have experienced teaching to be very rewarding. Inspiring people, helping them to reach the next level makes me happy.

How do I prepare?

Send me 10-20 images via wetransfer. Make sure your camera works and you enough spare batteries and memory cards.

What kind of camera do I need?

The camera you enjoy using.

What do I need to bring to the street photography workshop?

Comfortable clothing, good shoes, your camera, spare batteries and memory cards. A public transportation day pass AB is recommended (7€ on 7/2017).

Where will we go?

We’ll decide that together.

What if the weather is bad?

Well, there is no bad weather in street photography. A vast subway net, a great choice of museums and several train stations provide an ample choice of sheltered locations.

How do I pay?

The deposit via wire transfer or paypal. The rest per wire transfer, paypal or cash, when we meet. I need the full payment at the beginning of the street photography workshop.

What is your cancellation policy?

I’ll refund 50% of the deposit on cancellations up to 4 weeks prior to the booked. No refunds after that date. I happily reschedule for free up to four weeks prior to the booked date. Cancellation via email is fine.

What time slots are available?

Whenever you want. You like a sunrise tour or “Berlin at night”? Let’s do that. I’ll have to check my schedule first, obviously.

What does 2x4hours or 3x4hours mean?

4 hour sessions on two or three consecutive days. In my experience 8 hours of non stop one to one teaching is a bit challenging to absorb.

Can I do 8 hours on one day?

Yes, of course.

In what languages do you teach?

English, German and French

Can I do the personal workshop with a friend or two?

Absolutely, it will be +15 € h per hour and additional person. For the 2-day workshop that would +120€. The total cost of 2-day workshop would be 680 €. The cost per person would be 340€  for 2 participants and 267 € for 3 participants.

Can I have a different package?

Sure, just tell me what you need and we will make it happen.

Can I hire you for a company event or a group workshop?

Absolutely, shoot me a mail and we’ll come up with something.

Can I simply hire you for a photo tour through Berlin?

Of course, same rates above apply.

Did you ever participate in a street photography workshop yourself?

Actually, I have. A street photography workshop with Eric Kim in Amsterdam, a Magnum Masterclass with Bruce Gilden in London and a street photography workshop with Vineet Vohra at the Bruxelles Street Photography Festival.
