Joerg got his first camera in his hand at the age of seventeen. He felt a strong natural attraction as if it had always belonged to him. This attraction has remained to this days.
His career began in Berlin and took him to Paris, Milan and New York, where he lived and worked over 10 years as a fashion photographer. In the year 2000 he decided to come back to Berlin, where he lives and works now as an advertising and portrait photographer.
10 years ago, out of a spontaneous decision, he came the first time to Havana. Fascinating and paradoxical, the city once known as the “Paris of the Western Hemisphere” embraced him, and he fell in love with the city.
and since then he shares his time between Havanna and Berlin.
Joerg teaches you his philosophy on photography, how to develop concepts, work on the street, take portraits, shoot with natural light, and bring images to life in post-production.
Now, with 32, Adrian, is saying: „Life made me a photographer.“
As photography and moving images grow together in this time, Adrian was winning last December the „Lucas 2018“, the most prestigious price for music videos in Cuba.
Adrian is contrasting, with his down to earth approach, the contemplative and conceptional way Joergs thinking about photography. Teaching and learning with the two mentors, what come from very different background, combined by their passion for photography, is creating a unique opportunity to learn and create for all participants.
