I have been living in Los Angeles for over 20 years. To the visitor it may seem confusing because of the island structure of the city.

Wonderful locations in the sea of the indistinguishable, hidden wonders and locations.  Ocean or classic architecture, desert, forests and lonely country roads, warm light and somber noir atmosphere.

Los Angeles Photographer - East Coast Style + European Taste on the West Coast

I was born in Germany and grew up in Vienna, Austria, studied philosophy in Vienna and got my major influences there and while living in Paris and Berlin. All those influences and my keen interest in classic European art make me a hold-out of East Coast and European style in the Los Angeles beach scenery.

Why should a European or New York production shoot in Los Angeles? Many reasons: when times are gray, wet and cold California is warm and has the best light. Nothing compares to the late afternoon light in California when everything becomes gold plated and vibrating with beauty, even ordinary objects seem to get a moment of celestial quality.
