biography

After apprenticeship and studies in a technical field Gunnar discovered his passion for movies. He gathered first practical experience as a light technician and camera assistant and then completed his postgraduate studies “camera” at the Filmacademy in Ludwigsburg. Since then he is very successful and in great demand as a freelance director of photography, both for feature films and commercials. He was working with director Stefan Krohmer on the exigent TV film (Familienkreise, Ein toter Bruder), and he photographed very costly film productions like Stauffenberg, directed by Jo Baier. Gunnar´s clear, professional working style and his confident approach to create the right images for each unique story makes directors as well as producers always to aim for a cooperation with Gunnar.
