Just call me “Didi” – I am a hobby-photographer, located in Vienna/Austria and the main subjects of my photography for the past 20 years were people. A few months ago I decided to change my focus from people- to travel-photography and during the COVID lockdowns I was mainly dreaming about future vacations while editing and posting pictures of my past holidays on my Instagram profile.
This website shows parts of my people-photography-portfolio – which I created together with ambitious models and makeup artists – most of them are autodidacts like I am a self-taught person behind the camera.
What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.
I have been taking photos ever since I was 20 and bought my first analogue Nikon F90X camera. I still remember experimenting with infrared- and B&W slide-films befor digital photography became a thing.
Throughout the years I’ve experimented a lot, tried to find a personal style but never wanted to lose my love for playing around or experimenting with different model-types, locations, editing-styles and so on. For me photography is a playful way to improve my creativity. I hope some of my pictures inspire you.
