I am a German and English speaking cinematographer and Digital Image Technician based between Cape Town, South Africa and Vienna, Austria.
I have lived and worked in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Recently I worked on international reality shows such as I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here, The Amazing Race as well as the new Docu-Drama series No Man Left Behind with Raw TV/Film Afrika for National Geographic. My clients include BBC, Nat Geo, Discovery, Animal Planet, Smithsonian Earth amongst a few.
I specialised in wildlife during my time as a ranger in one of South Africa’s most prestigious nature reserves, where I spent almost 2 years living in the African bush filming and editing documentary series and documentary long-formats, which have been broadcast on major channels such as Animal Planet, ABC Australia and National Geographic. I filmed and edited the first wildlife shorts ever produced in Qatar and was part of building the biggest independent film production company in the Gulf. As Head of Technical Operations, I was able to expand my abilities as a certified high-speed Phantom Technician and as a Cineflex Aerial Operator.
I am currently in a partnership for the only Vision Research certified highspeed Phantom Flex 4k rental company in South Africa called Highspeedworx, servicing the industry with high speed cinematography. What sets me apart, is my personal drive to expand my horizon, the urge to seek adventure and to creatively relate visual stories with new camera technology.
