Hi, I am Florian and I am a documentary photographer.

Find out what I am doing right now.

My work focuses on people, their emotions and interactions with each other and with their environment.

My Approach

I like to stay in the background and let situations unfold undisturbed by my presence. This allows me to capture real moments. Years of street, travel and event photography have taught me to anticipate the important moments.

The greatest compliment I receive is if a client tells me “I didn’t even notice you taking that picture!”

For some time now, I have been working almost exclusively in black and white – although I am not against the use of color, where it makes sense.

My gear consists of Leica and Fujifilm cameras and lenses.

If you are interested in working with me, please get in touch.


I currently live in Essen, Germany with my wife Ulya and my two daughters.

You can also find me on my daily (not really) photo blog and I write a personal newsletter about my photographic projects (in German).

I also work as a web designer/developer at Haptiq, which if co-founded with my friend Claudio. We also created picu, a photo proofing WordPress plugin.
