Peter Schreiber BFF Munich People & Lifestyle and Sport Photographers

One must never fall asleep and always look for new challenges (see the 'Fear' project on my site). In the last 20 years I've been living in New York, Miami, Milan and Cape Town. Send me anywhere to shoot - the challenge to tell a story, I just love it!"
