Munich: Marcus Philipp Sauer

Born in 1972, Marcus did not receive his first camera at six and become a genius like 80% of photographers. Instead, he attended a couple of schools, until he got bored.

After three years on a photography apprenticeship, he took time out to enjoy life in Australia until he ran out of money and had to leave paradise. He returned to Germany to become an assistant and earn some money. He lasted for precisely six months, by which point he was sick of working for narcissistic photographers.

In 2001 Marcus took a loan from the bank and did a range of free car tests, built up his portfolio, and even found an agent who scored some small jobs for him.
Slowly, the jobs got bigger and bigger, and Marcus has since been able to build-up his own paradise through his work.
