"My heart beats for black and white!"

Tell us about yourself.

I was born in the summer of ´84 and live in Siegburg, a cozy little town near Cologne, Germany.
For paying my bills, I work half the time as a photographer. The other half, I do a lot of different jobs. For not beeing bored ;)

When and how did the film journey begin for you?

My first camera was a heritage from my grandfather. A Praktica SuperTL1000. This was 15 years ago. The first time, it was only trial and error. But I managed it and the last 5-6 years I started properly shooting film with good results... I hope so!

What type of film do you usually shoot and what made you choose it?

I shoot a wide varity of films. But my heart beats for black and white! Kodak Tri-X 400 and Ilford HP 5 Plus 400 are always a good choice.
Daniel Schöps What camera makes you click?

A lot! I am a collector, and there are around 50 cameras in working condition. But one of my favorite 35mm is a Yashica FX3 Super 2000 and medium format a Zeiss Ikon Ikonta M.

Between black and white and colour film which would you choose?

As I said: my heart beats for B&W!

What lenses do you use?

Only fixed focal lenght. I´ve got a wide varity of 50mm lenses for all kind of bayonet mount. Nice ones are a 45mm pancake 2.8 for Pentax K or a Zeiss Tessar 50mm 2.8 for Exakta mount.
