ABOUT

I photograph grateful people with whom I have regular contact. — I take and edit photos in my free time and not for any commission.

I AM THOMAS AND
I AM PHOTOGRAPHER

I photograph people, forgotten places, sports.
Hello! I’m Thomas, a documentary (sports) photographer based in the beautiful city of Potsdam in Germany. I feel very privileged to be doing something that I love, something that allows me creative freedom, the chance to travel and the opportunity to meet awesome people along the way. I’m quietly confident and easy-going and happy in any environment, with any crowd. This helps so much in blending in and capturing people and moments as they happen.
I photograph the moments of the day without interfering with the moments themselves.
This is really important because I don’t want you to feel like you’re on a photoshoot, your attention should be focused on the events playing out around you and my job is simply to be in the right place at the right time to capture these moments.
I aim to blend in, and when I say this I don’t mean lurking in dark corners with a long lens, quite the opposite, by using a wider lens and being in close to the action I can create a sense of involvement with those in the frame. This approach coupled with being empathetic to the situation in front of me increases people’s trust in me and leads to more engaging photographs.
When I leave I've made new friends.
So when I hear that it felt like I was another friend at this event, it makes me very, very happy because my impact is a positive one, even before they’ve seen any images.
I have been working alone as a freelancer since 2011 — I love people, sports, new, personal, extraordinary, forgotten, private.
During a shooting most photographers tend to focus on how people look by putting them in poses and telling them to hold an expression or fake a feeling.
Not for me thanks.
Why create a photograph of a moment that doesn’t mean anything, one that has been posed simply for the sake of how it looks?
But I hear you say, “feeling awkward during a photo shoot is to be expected isn’t it?”
Well, no, not really.
I want people to have fun during their shoot time with me. My aim is to create an experience that allows for real moments to flow naturally and effortlessly. This gives me the opportunity to capture people being themselves, together.

When you forget about the camera, you forget it’s a photo shoot and instead give your undivided attention to the person with you.
The results are authentic, natural photographs that take you back to the feelings, emotions and memories you experienced at the time.
