Jetlag and 24 hr roomservice

Nothing like a full breakfast at 4 AM when you can't sleep. We called room service and asked, what you got?, and they said, "Everything". That's how you get vegan breakfasts 4AM. Not many hotels that have their kitchen on fire day and night.

Chick Corea Electric Band reunited

Los Angeles, June 3 2018

10 sold-out concerts in LA was how popular the Chick Corea Electric Band was when reunited on June 3, 2018. I saw them in Denmark in 1992 after Beneath The Mask album was released. Same crew, now again a few years later.

"You inspire me also in the text you have written on the lenses: ‘If you have been dreaming about something then follow your dream’, and i do see that the full open 1.4 helps to create a dreamy feeling, so i will go for that one!”

"Thorsten, big brother! I started photography because of you. I watched dozens of YouTube many times and finally started out with a Leica CL and a 50mm Summilux f/1.4 lens. I love you, my favorite teacher is you. I hope we can take pictures like one day!"

"I want to extend my gratitude for a very full and helpful 5 days of your workshop. I am appreciative of your openness to share your experience, point-of-view, and tips with us. What I especially will take away from the workshop are many nuances that transform what might be a “good" photo to something better and more evocative.
And, the workshop was about more than photography; it is a unique way to connect with a group of interesting people to share and learn from one another. My appreciation extends to all the folks who made my life richer for our time together.”

"You've been an inspiration for me to get back into photography. I was overwhelmed with the plethora of options for cameras and all those damn options on them, that I decided to sell everything I had and just bought a Leica TL2 and 2 lenses (35mm and the 60mm macro for the TL). I've watched all of your videos and you simplify things so perfectly as to what is important and what is not. Love your videos and your site. You're a true educator when it comes to learning photography. You're passionate and have a great connection with your viewers. Thank you!"

New York Masterclass

June 24-26, 2018

A few very warm days in New York this time (which was different from the February workshop in a very cold New York). By coincidence, we had the Pride going on on 5th Avenue as the workshop started the first day, so we spent an hour doing street portraits of Pride audience.
