MANUEL NEUER - BEHIND THE SCENES

Vor kurzem durfte ich den großartigen Manuel Neuer fotografieren. Nur mit natürlichem Licht und kleinen, kompakten Sony Kameras haben wir auf dem Set eines neuen TV Spots ein paar Bilder und Cinemagraphs produziert. Mehr dazu hoffentlich schon bald, hier erst mal ein paar Behind the Scenes Eindrücke.

Recently I had the pleasure of shooting the incredible Hulk Manuel Neuer #bestgoalkepperintheworld. Shooting only available light we roamed around on set for a new tv spot and shot some images as well as cinemagraphs with these small and nifty Sony cameras. I’m hoping to be able to show the results soon, here’s some behind the scenes images for now.

ARJEN ROBBEN

To be able to shoot photos with one of the top soccer players in the world is a great experience by itself. On top of that we were lucky to have the completely empty and beautiful Allianz Arena as our location. Check out the series on my portfolio website christianbrecheis.com

1705

On Christmas morning I took a short trip just outside of Munich to witness the memorial service for the Sendling's night of murder.

From WikipediaSendling's night of murder (German: Sendlinger Mordweihnacht) was a massacre in 1705 in Sendling, 2 km south west of Munich. An army of peasants, protesting the Austrian regime during the Bavarian People's Uprising, had marched on Munich, but was betrayed from within and massacred. Some 1,100 peasants were killed.

BLICKFANG 2015 / 2016

Druckfrisch auf den Tisch: Die neue Ausgabe »BLICKFANG – Deutschlands beste Fotografen« für 2015/2016 ist erschienen. Für mich persönlich das Schönste unter den Sourcebooks. Hier stimmt die Mischung an Fotografen und ausgewählten Arbeiten. Insgesamt finden sich hier auf 656 Seiten etwas mehr als 200 Fotografen und das Ganze nennt sich dann noch "Deutschlands beste Fotografen" - das macht doch Freude. Hier kann man das Buch bestellen und sich auch gleich durch die Portfolios der Fotografen klicken: blickfang-dbf.de

BIRKENSTOCK PATRIK MUFF

Patrik Muff has a beautiful studio in one of the oldest parts of Munich. It was a pleasure shooting portraits with him and to document as he was laying some finishing touches on the Birkenstocks he designed.

BEHIND THE SCENES OF A LIFESTYLE AND SPORTS SHOOT

Back in September I went on a huge mission - a shoot in two countries, lot's of travel, crew, talent... It was also the third time I went to shoot in the desert this year (here's 1 and 2), must be a trending thing.

We shot lifestyle and sports, it was both challenging and fun. A huge thanks to everyone who made this possible, super duper special thanks to Vio, Izaak and John! Let's do this again!

Here's some behind the scenes footage which I can share by now...

iPhone clip of a second long video recorded almost each day:



The top bit of the Burj Khalifa, we went all the way up one night. I think you can go half way for a third of the price which is less of a rip off.

This was definitely just shortly after sunrise and just moments before the sand got burning hot
The afternoon held some mixed weather for us. Sunny on the right, rainy on the left and we thought it's funny that it's raining in the desert.

just moments later the wind picked up and we found ourselves in a massive sand and rain strom
