Biography

From an alsatian point of view Paris lies beyond the other side of the mountains and Berlin beyond the other side of the river, I choose the later when I came back to Europe 2 years ago, with fresh mind and new eyes.

This after living many years in asia were I have filled numerous fashion and advertising contracts as well as continued to develop creatively with personal projects.

In the last years I had teamed up with korean photographer JuneLee under the name Junelouis. We still cooperate on a project by project basis.

My skills in fashion photography and sports related advertising help me creating nicely lit advertising images and dynamic fashion images.

My fine art focuses on elements like wind, water, gravity and how they relate to us.
