The North of Vietnam

Towering limestone pillars and tiny islets topped by forest rise from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1994, Halong Bay's scatter of islands, dotted with wind- and wave-eroded grottoes, is a vision of ethereal beauty and, unsurprisingly, northern Vietnam's number one-tourism hub. I spent one night on a boat here and captured sunrise and sunset with my drone, enjoy this short video with some impressions from this amazing landscape in the north-east of Vietnam.

After a 12 hours car ride from the Halong Bay through the Vietnamese mountains I finally arrived at the beautiful rice terraces of Mu Cang Chai. The long journey was worth it - I’ve never seen something like this before. The rice has already colored from green to yellow and is ready for the harvest - glad that I made it to this place while the „golden season“. Beautiful golden rice terraces and green tea hills - welcome to North Vietnam.

Erfurt Christmas Market

I’ve been waiting for these conditions since more than six years. A few days ago it was finally possible to capture my hometown Erfurt with fog during the golden hour, for a few minutes the whole town looked like a fairytale world. Lay back and enjoy this short edit of the beautiful Christmas market and the old town of Erfurt.

COVER BOY ???????? Ich kann es immer noch nicht fassen: Fast neun Jahre lese ich nun diese Zeitschrift und nun ist mein Gesicht auf der Titelseite vom Film & TV Kamera Magazin, dem größten Heft für Filmschaffende in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz. Es ist eine riesengroße Ehre und ich bin mega dankbar, dass ich auf fünf Seiten über meine Leidenschaft und meinen Traumberuf sprechen durfte. Danke an alle, die mich in den letzten Jahren unterstützt haben und dazu beigetragen haben! Ein großes Dankeschön geht auch an meine Freundin, Freunde und Familie, die in den letzten Jahren oft zurückstecken mussten, aber trotzdem immer hinter mir standen und an mich geglaubt haben. Love goes out! ❤️

English version:
COVER BOY! ???????? It's a great honour for me to be on the recent top cover of the Film & TV Kamera magazine - the biggest magazine for the filmmaking industry in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. I'm reading this magazine since more than 9 years and learned so much from it - now I'm also part of it, this is a real pleasure for me and it still feels totally unreal. On 5 pages I speak about my career as a videographer, how I organize my jobs, which gear I'm using and how I produce high quality videos without a huge film crew and tons of equipment. I'm so thankful, love goes out to everybody who made this possible and supported me the last years! ❤️????
