My first attempt into wedding Photographie

A fantastic Weekend is coming to an end and I am still quite awestruck by all the impressions that I have collected in the last 48 hours – But first things first: I have been invited to my very first Wedding (if you do not count the chinese version of my Team assistance last year). My Second Cousin has got married in Schloss Wulkow close to the Polish Border and the setting couldn’t have been nicer. Of course they had planned this wedding months before and wanting me to be a their only as a guest meant, that they had already organised to professional photographers to capture all the emotions of the day. Still I wanted to practice for having to shoot my first wedding job next summer and took my small 50mm canon camera with me. Trying to take some emotional pictures with limited effort proved to be quite a blast, and my smiles during editing became bigger and bigger.

Considering how much fun I had this weekend I am really looking forward to next years big job.

27 Pictures – 6 days – An old photographers dream

I am back in Germany and I know. I know I have not stuck to my promise. I have not posted too much about my holiday during the summer. Part of the reason is that I am not allowed to speak about some of the amazing projects at this point, but stay tuned for some great videos later that year. The other reason is that I have just really enjoyed my time and did not want to spoil the Finish summer in front of a computer. One project I want to speak about today was something I have done ten years ago and have ceased to exercise ever since. I have faced the the challenges of analog photography for a long time when starting to mess with the camera of my parents at the age of ten, but have been a true digital photographer ever since. Having enjoyed the virtues of shooting 500 pictures and more during one event, having total control with a small monitor, and knowing all ways around my small EOS 500D – I really like my way of Phototography. Nevertheless I was in for a big change this summer.

For the FLOW Festival 2012 in Helsinki I did not want to use my Large SLR but chose an option inspired by my great finish friend Satu Moilainen. Satu attempted this summer to shoot with only one instant camera and 27 pictures during the course of three months. My patience is not close to this excellence but I liked the idea way too much and bought myself and overpriced small cam and even found some time to paint it in funky colors.

My results? How did I like those 27 precious little pictures? I am not really sure – part of me is very proud to have attempted to limit myself to this small number and is surprised by the results. The other half is very certain about the incredible luck you must have with this kind of photography. Nevertheless I got the taste of it and will try to shoot more lucky photography later that year .. Stay tuned!

Greets from the Road

As mentioned before I am once again in my most loved chinese city – and event though it is not close to being a perfect weather I still love Shanghai above all other.

Enjoy everybody and see you all back in Shenyang (2 weeks) or Munich (3 weeks)!

Mittelbayerische Zeitung

yes – it finally happened: one of my pictures has found its way to a german news paper. Its a regional publication that used one of my pictures that I have shot for the “Studiokino” Regensburg about a year ago. The whole job had been come together because of a favor I did for my friend Gerschi. Having played around with the pictures a little more, the request from Unifilm came if I want to do a little more in Regensburg with the local Students movie theater. Good memories come up – can’t wait to go back to Germany to shoot a little more for those guys!.

Chinese Working Safety

Even risking to be too stereotypical – is this the reason why chinese people have such small eyes? In the time while I have been in the spot nothing happened, but I really felt uncomfortable there. At least there were a couple of glass lenses covering my eyes..

You know me?

A couple of days ago I met a new colleague at work. He greeted me cheerfully even though I had rarely seen him. apparently he had seen me before. After a couple of minutes I knew why I had been so familiar to him. After over one year the campaign that I had been a model for has finally launched. If you google ‘Max Korehnke BMW’ you should be able to find a couple of hits with that combination. I have rarely spoken about my work here on the blog.

I will continue to do so but regarding the current campaign of my employer I want to utter a few words.

I have been with the company for almost four years now. During this time I have been a member of the Trainee-Promotion Program (TPP) and to this day I enjoy enjoy great lengths of freedom. I received a wonderful vocational education, jumped through various parts of the company like engineering, production and controlling. Parallel to this time I have been a mechanical engineering student at the University of Applied Science in Munich.

Lately I have even been granted with the opportunity to go to China for seven months to build up a new Factory Shenyang. BMW has provided me with the freedom to fulfill my dreams in the midst of a global company producing fascinating pieces of engineering art. I want to thank them for their support. If you have any questions regarding my life in the company or your chances to join BMW in general feel free to ask me privately or flip through their webpage.
