Michael engaged in photography since 1985, when he got his first camera, an all manual Rollei 35 and a few rolls of Kodak Ektachrome. In 1987 Canon offered one of the first SLR systems with autofocus, the EOS (Electro-Optical System). It is still Canon's digital SLR system today. Michael got his EOS 650 and first EF lenses back then and used it amongst other cameras until 2003, when he made the switch to digital photography.

Over the years Michael has worked with a variety of film and digital still cameras (Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Sony, etc.), 35mm, 16mm and digital motion-picture cameras (ARRI, Panavision, Sony, RED, etc.) as well as analog and digital video equipment.
For visual effects as well as creative photography he uses hand selected photographic gear from a variety of brands, like Canon, Leica, Zeiss, or Nikon, delivering the required high-end technical quality and professional performance.
