Do you also need flash units?

What photo technology do you work with?
Answer: Yes absolutely, they are one of the most important

parts of our work.

Studio flashes with a very fast recharge time are very

important to capture every moment.The flashes are mounted

on rollable tripods in order to change the light situation quickly.

Can you briefly explain how your pictures are created?

Answer: We don’t like to commit ourselves and keep trying

new things. Just don’t stand still! We find ourselves in

constantly growing processes that we incorporate into our

work with oil paint,acrylic paint, powder or even a liquid

made by us. This is then recorded through photography.

 

 

How long have you been photographing in this style

or since when have you been shooting at all?

Answer Mike: I’ve always been taking photos,

it was a secret passion besides music.I discovered more

andmore my interest and talent for photography, especially

abstractart and the unconventional. Together

with mywife I have been combining painting andphotography

for about 3 years. Photography is part of

our artisticexpression and thecamera is a tool to capture

the merging of colors

You now have many thousands of fans of your work.

Is there a recipe for success?

Answer: In art you can’t really work towards success,

you can only follow your creativity and work passionately

at it. When it reaches and inspires many people, it is

a great pleasure for us.

How long does a picture take from the idea to be completed?

Answer: It can take 2 to 4 weeks and over 1000 shots to

find the right motif for us. In addition, there is preparation for printing.

For us it is and remains a creative process that cannot always

be controlled. Over the years, however, there have been works

that were on the wall very quickly.

How does the joint work work?Do you split up?
Answer: Working together is harmonious, no one can do

without the other. However, our rolesare clearly assigned.

Do you always work with a black background?Answer:

yes. However, this only plays a subordinate role, as

the high shutter speed automaticallydarkens the background.

Is there still a lot going on in image processing?

And if so, what?

Answer: Not very much anymore if we did everything right.

If so, it’s just a few adjustments, mostlyin Camera RAW or PHOCUS.

The works get more expression, which we needed for the

later fineart print. It is important to us to create the best

possible situation right from the start, which savesus a

lot of post-processing. Fixed post-processing are adjustments

in contrast, dynamics, clarity,lens correction and color

temperature. Here and there small bumps are removed.

Can you imagine photographing something else?

Or did you find your style and stick with it?

Answer: We are open to new impulses and inspiration

and will never stop treading new and unconventional paths.

Creativity is like a source that can ultimately become a torrent

Where can you see your pictures? Are there exhibitions?
Answer: yes. There have been exhibitions in Salzburg, Berlin,

London and currently also in Ibiza City.We currently

have gallery and trade fair inquiries from Monaco, Dubai,

France, New York and Germany,which we are trying to

implement as soon as possible. In Germany we will still

decide on galleries bythe end of the year. In 2016 we

take part in the charity art auction for Placet with many

other renowned artists.We will inform all interested

parties in good time via our web or Facebook page.

You handle colors. Are your shoots always spotless?

Answer: Free of stains? No, definitely not. The world is

colorful and so is our life. Of course, Madeleine could always

pull out the cleaning rag immediately and wipe it off.

But just a spotty day also promises to have achieved a lot.
