Ohne-Uns Logo: Eine Aktion österreichischer Veranstaltungsdienstleister in Zeiten des Corona Viruses

Hi there!
A message in tough times. First of all, I hope all of you a healthy and safe. Try to stay this way.
Around here, most of the public life has come to a halt. Most of the businesses, shops, restaurants, bars, theatres, playgrounds and sport venues are closed.
This brings me to above logo: All Austrian theatres, concert venues, festivals, clubs, and other places of entertainment, but also exhibition venues had to stop their operation by government order at March 9th, until at least April 13th.
A lot of people working in this industry, most of them freelancers like myself had run out of jobs at that moment. There are some promises from the government about some compensation payments, but at the moment this is all a little vague.
So the community of all kind of professions working in this industry has started a campaign to not get overheard. This is “OHNE-UNS” (“Without-us”)

The website is in German, but maybe you take a look and re post and share :

Stay safe, guys!

A new post after a long time! I did some experimentation with different lighting setups for close-ups in the studio. I find this one pretty nice so I would like to share it with you.

Hello, I haven’t posted something here on this blog for a long time. But it’s a new year, so it’s time to change some things – or go back to some others. Well, I can only promise to put more of my time in this blog, posting examples of my work, background stories and things I think would be for interest for others.
Above picture was created after I finished shooting for a different project. It became dark, I turned around, and saw this impressive sky. I_m still not sure what’s the correct translation of the German word “Kitsch” is – but this is an obvious example of it!

End of February

Winter mood
It’s the end of February, and we got new snow and arctic temperatures. And bravely, we still did an outdoor shooting.

haze and snow

 

 

snowy mountains through haze
Snow covered mountains in the morning sun through a lot of haze.

This is shot is a “side product” from a photo shooting. While waiting for the set to be finished, I looked around and discovered this nice mixture of haze, a touch of sunlight and the early snow on the far mountains.

sunny barn

When I worked on a concert for the Styriarte 2017 at the Freilichtmuseum Stübing, we finished the load-in and the setup early, so we have to wait for the evening show. A part of this barn was used as a storage place for our equipment, the dressing rooms and the FOH area – all at once. In the late afternoon the sun floated through giving this nice lighting…
