Karsten Koch Hamburg People & Lifestyle Photographers and Directors

The merger of photo and film has been quite normal for Karsten Koch for years. Nowadays, however, more important than ever. Combining both style elements makes perfect sense for Karsten. In this way, he can easily serve the many different formats with your different requirements.

Efficiency is the goal when Karsten simply switches quickly between the camera systems, since the entire planning in terms of technology and light is directly coordinated with it. Karsten enjoys going even deeper, “The stories are simply told better.” Moving image with its possibilities through editing and music brings even more emotions into the image.

The "discovery" of customers and their products is an exciting journey for Karsten Koch. Whether it's about power supply and a campaign that is being produced in a large team parallel to the film: EON. Or for a medium-sized company from the logistics industry, where the vehicle fleet and the company are portrayed with the employees: PEMA. Or standing in the fields with a farmer in Serbia at sunrise: KWS. Up to the tourism industry, which would like to promote your hotel complex and the feeling of vacation during this time too: TUI.

In January Karsten Koch will be in South Africa for summer, with low numbers of infections and capacity for synergy effects.
