Some of my closest friends are horses around the world.
Growing up surrounded by the green meadows of Münsterland (Germany) I quickly evolved a passion for nature and animals. Even though I always have felt connected to horses I first chose an education to become a certified graphic designer at one of Europe's biggest newspaper groups. This helped me to improve my knowledge in the fields of color psychology, client managing and art composition which sustainably shaped my career path.
Anyway I missed the feeling of freedom in this office job, so I wanted to give it a shot and see if my dreams could become reality. Life is far too short to constantly ask yourself: What if?
WHAT THEN HAPPENED ...
As an animal welfarist, creating stress-free surroundings for my horse models is my highest priority. With a special sense for image compositions and due to my unconditional dedication to my job, the models are photographed the way their owners have always seen them: with the heart.
