Bosch - all about DIY

For all of the DIY, crafts and home improvement aficionados Bosch developed a beautiful new blog format called All about DIY. They show you how to build a ton of things from scratch, from furniture to sports equipment at home and it was great to convert my little addiction to everything around craftsmanship, tools and mechanics into a corporate campaign.

Seven BUS:STOPs and a car: In Austria for Mazda Motion

Seven architects from seven different countries design seven unique bus stops in the town of Krumbach in Vorarlberg/Austria. In collaboration with local craftsmen those architects, including Sou Fujimoto from Japan and Moscow-based Alexander Brodsky, designed small usable spaces for the public good that differ completely from the functional and unremarkable bus stops we are used to.

We went there with a Mazda 6 for the company’s B2C magazine “Motion Mazda”.

Professor Harold James for Union Investment

I always love to meet and portray interesting, modest, charming, intelligent and exceptional people - especially when all of those are combined in one. Harold James Professor of History at Princeton University spent some time in Munich to talk about the parallels and differences of todays events compared to the 30s. The images are published in Union Investment’s “Weitwinkel” magazine.

Supporting the future of football!

Football has been my first love. As a child I always wanted to be a professional, but in the end I “only” got to the point where I get assigned to meet and shoot professional Bundesliga players.

So, I’m happy to help some talented young guys playing at my home club with a little sponsorship and I hope that some of them get the chance to fulfill their dreams.

Meet the U10 team of SV Hörgertshausen! They won the game by 15:1 by the way…


A blind man and his house

Wolfgang Hermann builds a house of 930 sqm. Apart from its fairly big size nothing special one might think. But Hermann is has been blind for over 40 years and started to build his new home in the 90s from scratch and until now he built more than 320 sqm of walls, installed over one kilometer of electric wires and used more than 3,5 kilometers of wooden panels.

A portrait of a fascinating man for HORNBACH. Check out the story and the interview at their Macher-Blog.
