"I cannot say whether things will get better if we change; what I can say is they must change if they are to get better." Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
I am a creative photo producer, art buyer and photo editor based in Hamburg, Germany.Production is my passion and I have loved my job for more than 20 years now. Photography has been part of my life since the 80s, so I have seen the good, the wild and the bad times within the advertising industry. I have worked as an art buyer for Saatchi & Saatchi, Benton & Bowles and Michael Conrad & Leo Burnett in Frankfurt. In 1987 I founded my own production company theMOSCH production. Beside art buying and production I offer coaching and consulting for photographers. In 2003 I moved to Hamburg and I enjoy living in the north together with my son Moritz and a Spanish greyhound named Spyder von Erdberg. If I have any spare time, I actively contribute towards the protection of animals, especially of greyhounds.
It's all about flow
Let your dreams be greater than your fears and your actions louder than your words.
All creativity is about flow. A well-organized production keeps you and your job moving into the right direction. This begins with the estimate, composition of your team and the paying attention to of all the little details of your production, including the timing and the costs. There is always a solution for every problem, no matter whether it is money- or timing-related. You can benefit from my varied and experienced background to fulfil your individual requirements for your commercial or personal work.
