This week I have decided to introduce to you a guy, and it's been a long time hasn't it?! His photography and looks - I just love it! It's rare to see men fashion bloggers (and also photographers) in the blogosphere. I was really impressed by his sense of style, amazing pictures from his travels and the way he looks so stylish with simple clothes. I advise you to visit his blog and his website if you don't know him and his work, it's just amazing! Also, check out the interview just below.
DW__What's your name? How old are you and where do you live?
I'm Christoph, I'm 22 years young and I currently live in Munich, Germany (most of the time).
let's talk about fashion...
DW__When did you started blogging and how did you come up with the idea?
I started "blogging" about two and a half years ago I think… I basically used it as a platform to share my photography (when I was getting started on it) in order to get feedback and develop myself further. With the time is has become better and better.
DW__Where do you get your ideas from?
Films, Magazines (I have a LOT of magazines), Books and life in general.
DW__What is fashion for you?
Fashion can be anything. It can be art, it can be a uniform, it can be a way to express yourself. To me it's mostly a way of showing the world who I am - I'm trying to choose my clothes so they reflect my personality. Life has become so fast and impressions last just a couple of seconds. Your clothes are the way to make that impression.
DW__According to you, what is the most significant period for men's fashion?
I think it's right now. Men's fashion is opening up more and more from being just a uniform of suit and tie to becoming something more playful, more fun.
DW__Who is your favourite designer?
Christopher Bailey of Burberry and Nicolas Formichetti (not my style generally but I like his approach).
let's talk about photography...
DW__When I saw your blog for the 1st time, I was really amazed by all the travels, the amazing photos you took, when did you started photography?
I started because of travelling to be honest. I used to travel a lot without having a camera with me and after a while I got kind of sad that I couldn't bring any memories with me. So I got myself my first camera and that's when it all started…
DW__How did you get this passion for photography? What/who encouraged you to start?
I just started by taking pictures to capture memories but after a while I wanted my pictures to be better and better. So I kind of got obsessed with this idea of taking good pictures and I did everything to learn really quickly.
DW__What are your greatests inspirations?
Do you have some photographers who inspire you?Films and Books again! And other photographers. I like Ryan McGinley, Juergen Teller and lots of others!
DW__If you could shoot anyone, who would it be?
That's a though one! Hmm let me think… I guess Cara to be honest. She's my idea of beauty.
DW__What are you most proud of? (thanks to photography)
I'm proud of having come to where I am right now on my own. From nothing. But of course I'm not where I want to be yet, so there's lots of goals ahead!
DW__What is your favourite equiment to shoot?
Canon Dslr and a fixed lens - that's it. I don't like having lots of equipment with me. Stay simple.
DW__What are your future projects?
Lots of lots of projects! I'll be shooting a couple of music videos very soon, and band pictures, and portraits and campaigns!! It's looking good at the moment!
DW__Websites? blogs? other links?
