Where are you based?
Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany
How did you get into photography?
I got into photography through my traveling. My girlfriend’s travel, fashion and lifestyle blog Looks & Likes also motivated me to start taking photos plus how Instagram allows you to tell a story.
What inspires you?
Other artists (blogs), the nature and generally the beauty of life
What is the inspiration behind your Instagram handle?
My inspiration is to share with people a little bit about my life through minimalistic photos.
Has Instagram changed the way you photograph?
Yes, definitely. I have always wanted to have a clean and minimalistic feed. The square-format of the pictures made it much easier to express myself.
Whose work influences you?
What do you want to say with your photographs? What message do you want to convey?
I just want to say hello to the beauty of life and show it to people from all over the world.
What motivates you to continue taking photographs?
How do you find subjects that you want to take photos of? For example, do you travel to locations you know you’ll find appealing or take pictures as you experience life?
I look for well-designed, human-created shapes such as architecture. Special kinds of angles or views, and naturally created colors and structures also interest me.
Among your photos, which are your favorite(s) and why?
My favorite photo is the one I took in Copenhagen at Grundtvig Church; it is so lovely with calming shapes. I am also pleased with all of my sky pictures, as each time they are different and showcase great colors.
