Who are you : I am Philipp, a 22 year old Munich based mechanical engineering student with a passion for photography and automobiles

Your current job : Student, automotive photographer

In which city are you located? Munich, Germany

A word to define what kind of worker you are: trying to work hard and focused, 

What tools are essential to your life (app, software, etc..): Evernote, Apple Reminder, Photoshop+Bridge, My Camper Van

What does your office space look like? My office is usually some cool location where we shoot cars (haha) no seriously, it’s a desk in my tiny apartment in the centre of munich with a 27“ Display and a Windows Working- Horse. 

What kind of music do you listen when you are working ? it depends, as soon as i have to concentrate I try to switch music of, for photoshopping I usually listen to hip hop

Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ? I am still trying to find that way by myself haha

What tips would you give to improve productivity ? focus on one thing at a time only

You’re better than your colleagues to: Asking questions maybe

What is the best advice anyone has given you ? „You are not selling just a photo, it’s the whole job you sell – starting at the first email/phonecall until the delivery of the final images”

What is your best tip for saving time? Reduce thinking about wether you should do something or not, just do it 🙂  

What is your routine start and end of the day? I do not really have routine which I don’t like. Almost every day looks different – sometimes I get up at 4, drive 500km, do a huge photoshoot and get back 500km at 11am which results in a 24h working day – as a result the next day is fucked and I get up at 12, try to review yesterdays work etc. – 

Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go without? I am fine with my phone and computer for most of the time. For sure there are a lot of more devices I use when it comes to photography which I would not really call gadgets anymore
