Behind the scenes: Infiniti shooting at Studio Dernbach

Why am I doing what I do?

I have been interested in machinery and in cars from childhood on.
I was (and still am) always fascinated by the design especially of sportscars.
And of course, by the interaction of man and machine.
So it is quite natural that I love to share this fascination and passion in creating images of cars, their owners, builders, designers, drivers and enthusiasts.
All of that let me to some great stories, so far. Been there, seen that, photographed that!
