Charles Kreische

November 16, 2017

So far I’ve photographed six awesome singers playing “Alfred” through the years, but I noticed that there was only one “Herbert” as far as I know of my customers careers!  So I was very happy that I had the honor to also meet and portray the reigning “Herbert” of this years production of “Tanz der Vampire”  – Charles Kreische, a handsome, very young singer/actor who has just finished his training at the Joop van den Ende Academy in Hamburg.

I got to know him as a very polite, kind person, so it was easy to get along really well. Although this has been his first personal photoshoot, he did a very good job and I enjoyed that afternoon very much.

I absolutely have to watch the show when there’s finally some time left, as I am curious now to see him on stage too! If you want to know more about Charlie, please also visit his facebook-page, where you can even watch a video of his transformation to a beautiful blonde vampire.

As it was getting colder and colder outside I simply took my studio-equippment with me to the Ronacher, although I also shot many photos there with natural light only. We thankfully got permission to use this awesome building as a shooting location, because we both love those gray structured concrete walls, and even took some pictures outside at the roof-terrace.

Shooting on location is also much more interesting for me as a photographer than working in a studio – finding solutions for different light situations, exploring the city or using structured or painted walls in flats or houses is so much more fun!

And here are more of my favorite pictures of that day – enjoy! 🙂

Peter Knauder, IV

October 26, 2017

I already know Peter since 2011, so this September we took photos for the already fourth time – and this shooting should mean a lot more to me later than I expected on that day. A big thank you to Peter again for that afternoon – you’re awesome!

If you want to look at the photos we took in 2011 too, please click on this link and scroll down there.

Peter was very excited about the shoot and got tons of ideas for what to wear – and I’m always astounded by the creativity of his wardrobe choices, and they sometimes also make me smile. 🙂 So it’s always a pleasure working with him. Actually it’s more like playing and trying things, and that’s what I especially love about photography.

Peter also is very committed to fitness training, so of course we tried to make his already perfect body look best. Lots of skin and muscles this time and more of a fashion-style than in the portrait work I usually do, so I hope you enjoy the photos too!

Last week I had the pleasure getting to know actress Iris Nussbaum, a lovely young, beautiful girl who has finished studying at the Schauspielschule Krauss this year, so I enjoyed taking her portraits a lot and I hope they will help her finding great jobs on TV or in movies!

During a shoot there’s always that one special moment where everything turns out to be perfect, and I just love these exciting minutes! In this case:

But of course there are many pictures I like a lot, so just enjoy the slideshow below. 😉

Sandra Maria Miklautz

Sandra Maria Miklautz

I first saw Sandra on stage in 2001, when she was still studying at the Performing Center Austria. “Magic to do” was a great show, directed and choreographed by the phantastic Alonso Barros. Later that year Sandra played in “Crazy Love”, a very cute new (in 2001) musical at the Wiener Metropol. Since then she has worked for the Vereinigte Bühnen Wien, did a lot of freelance work and is also teaching dance-classes. In case you have seen “Das Orangenmädchen” – a beautiful little musical at the Off-Stage theatre in 2008/2009, based on the book of Jostein Garder, Sandra played the title role.

And now, finally – 15 years later after getting to know her – I had the pleasure to take Sandra’s portraits! 🙂 Such a beautiful face! We tried different kind of outfits (that’s the advantage of shooting at somebody’s home instead of a studio) until we finally started taking photos of Sandra wearing her nightgown, which worked perfectly well for me, as she seems to be a very open, passionate woman. If you want to find out more about Sandra herself, please also visit her own website. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed shooting!

Richard and I have definitely taken a lot of photos together so far – and I enjoyed every single time, as he is one of the most relaxed and funniest people I know! 🙂

I have no idea how he manages all the different things/jobs he’s doing all the time: Acting, costume designing – and especially being a very busy, successful puppeteer with his own show “Paperman” after winning the 2nd prize in RTL’s “Die Puppenstars”.

Richard is a very good looking “vampire” (Martina Bruckner-Nöhrer: Thanks for the phantastic make-up!) and I would have loved to watch a movie like “Twilight” with him even more. 🙂

Some years ago Richard helped me with one of my projects called “Papergirl & Plasticboy” (Everything except my two models was either plastic or paper! Hair & Make-up again by Martina Bruckner-Nöhrer) during a workshop about fashion photography and an exhibition – the clothes  Birgit and Stefan are wearing are all made out of paper and plastic, designed by Richard – I think he did an awesome job here as well, so thanks again! 🙂 Here’s the last (wedding) photo of this series:

This summer we took some portraits outdoor in a rather quick shooting, here’s one of my favourites of that day, more in the slideshow below!

Linda Fischer

In August I had the pleasure to get to know Linda Fischer, a very nice, natural girl with supercool blue eyes! At the moment she’s a student at the “Musik und Kunst Privatuniversität” here in Vienna, starting her last year very soon. 🙂

Although it should have been raining at least part of the shooting-day we were very lucky with the weather, so we could walk around, talk and take some pictures. On our way we found an awesome red wall, and as Linda had a perfectly matching lipstick with her, it worked out so well!

I hope my photos will help Linda to get great jobs and I’m looking forward to see her on stage very soon.

Florian and I already took photos three years ago, in case you want to look at the old pictures – HERE you can find the other blogpost.

This time the weather was finally perfect! 🙂 So we walked around in Vienna and tried to find photogenic places. As Florian basically is a classical singer, he needed photos with a tailcoat and later then a jacket, a kind of style that is just perfect for him!

If you want to see Florian on stage, at the moment he’s playing at the Lehár-Festival in Bad Ischl. And now enjoy the slideshow! And if you want to know more about Florian himself, please also visit his website!
