Imagine a world without photography.
One could only imagine.

About me

Michael

My name is Michael Schulte. I’m an engineer, tech addict, photographer and passionate surfer. I work as a project manager for an internationally operating event organizer. My job helps me keeping track of current technological developments. This applies to the technologies related to my professional background as well as to the way products and information is being presented. Thus I can bring inline my personal interests and skills with professional application: Web design, content management, online marketing and publishing from printed matters to mobile apps.

Photography allows me to take another view on the world - and it gives me the opportunity to relax from my daily job. I’m an amateur photographer, yes, as there are many in the field, but much to my joy I receive positive reactions on the way I image scenes. I am pleased if you like my website and one or another exemplary photo.

If you are interested in my work or want to know more about my projects, just drop me a line.

If you like to show off your current fashion outfit or if you enjoy wearing clothes of e.g. the 50’s, 60’s I’m pleased to hear from you! I specialise in portraiture.
Quality
I have a high quality demand for my own work and I’m constantly striving to improve my skills to come to best possible results.
Reliability and Independence
Mutual confidence and a clear communication are a prerequisite for a good cooperation. My reputation is very important to me. I’m responsible for my work which I do with pleasure and independent from agencies and commercial requirements.
