Munich: Stefan Schütz

Stefan Schütz is a Munich-based people and sports photographer. He combines his passion for sports, travel and adventure with photography all around the world.

Several recent expeditions have taken him through Central Asia, Africa and South America. Always on the search for those little-known locations far away from the tourist trail, in 2007/2008 he travelled nine months and 60,000 km in his Toyota through 21 African countries. The resulting book 'Views of Africa' was nominated for the 2010 German Photo Book Award.

Celebrities including Alex and Thomas Huber, Dirk Nowitzki, Ian Thorpe and Jürgen Klopp have all enjoyed shooting with Stefan. His upcoming worldwide campaign for Gore-Tex was shot on location in Austria, Germany, Spain and Italy, often in difficult weather conditions.

Stefan and his team travelled to Tenerife for an image campaign for Sport Scheck. He also shot Bundesliga football team Mainz 05 for Entega through agency DDB Berlin. The 2011 Chiemsee Beachwear summer collection was shot on location in Mauritius, where Stefan worked on both a photo and video shoot with authentic local surfer and German Wave-Freestyle-Windsurfing master Klaas Voget.
