about me


hi, i am "the schitto"


in case we haven't met yet, here is some information about me: i am a graphic designer, art director and photographer. i own a degree in visual communication from the university of applied sciences mannheim and got my hands on experience in filmmaking at nyfa in new york.




i used to work as a creative director in advertising. my career started in international network agencies like saatchi & saatchi, lintas and mccann’s. in 1999 I set up my own company "schitto schmodde werbung" in frankfurt with my creative teampartner jan schmodde. 


under my responsibility, advertising campaigns for movies and art exhibitions, for candy bars and sports cars, for detergents and water filters were developed.


and from time to time i had the chance to watch real stars of photography working their magic on camera. 


because advertising is not all there is to life, i decided to leave my agency end of 2019.


today i shoot portraits of young and old, beautiful and distinctive, popular and forgotten people. not to mention my soft spot for street photography, fashion, performing arts and food.


have fun scrolling through my online portfolio and... see you soon.
