My name is Matthias, I am a Munich-based photographer.

Interested in photography since my early childhood, I took my first photo in 1997 at the age of four. It was a real wildlife photo – a stuffed animal dog, placed on my parents‘ couch. My first camera was given to me in 1998.

In 2015 I started studying photo design at the Munich University of Applied Sciences. There I had the chance to explore the different genres of photography. Also, I learned a lot about design and how to film and edit short video productions. During my time there, I majorly focused on portrait, product, architecture, and documentary photography. For six months I lived in Stockholm to concentrate on an architecture book project.

After my bachelor’s thesis »1.5°C« – a documentary work about the impact of the anthropogenic climate emergency in Mongolia – I am working as a freelance photographer and light assistant to learn even more about photography.
My main focus at the moment is on portraits, documentaries, events, and architecture. I am especially interested in projects about sustainability and equality.

So if you are interested in working together, please contact me. I am looking forward to hearing from you!
