Hello and Welcome! 

I’m Michael Weber and I love to take pictures, mostly of people.

I offer photo shoots in the areas of portrait, fashion and intimate photography. You can book me also as documentary and travel photographer. 

The most important thing for a photo shoot is that the person photographed feels comfortable and can open up to the experience. Only then can I catch a genuine view on personality and true emotions. That’s why I take plenty time while shooting. No glancing at the clock, no fixed slots, but completely engaging in the moment and the human in front of the camera.

The choice of a suitable location is just as individual, be it in nature, interesting urban places, in a hotel suite or at home. In a first meeting, e.g to a cup of coffee, we will talk about the course and concept of the shooting and get to know each other.

That’s what other are saying about shoots with me:  

  • Thank you so much for The incredible experience of Playing Model for a Night. I think i can speak for Anna (Gardner from Delight vintage) that The Session was exciting, empowering, Explorative And just Down right Fun. If you Ever Need a Model Michael, you know Where i am!!! Thanks again!!!

  • Michael konnte mir die anfängliche Nervosität und Unsicherheit innerhalb kürzester Zeit nehmen und das Fotoshooting war einfach nur ein unglaublich tolles Erlebnis, das mir lange in Erinnerung bleibt. Es machte sehr viel Spaß und man lernte Seiten an sich kennen, von denen man nie gedacht hätte, dass sie existieren. Die Bilder sind einmalig!
  • Für mich war es das erste Fotoshooting und daher mit viel positiver Aufregung verbunden. Diese wandelte sich jedoch schnell in Vertrauen, Euphorie und Spieltrieb aus. Die Location, das Wetter, die gut-gelaunte Visagistin Elli und vor allem Michael selbst haben dafür gesorgt, dass sich alles in ein großartiges Event verwandelte. Ich bin mit dem Ergebnis überaus glücklich. Von Romantik bis Editorial: die Bilder sind einfach klasse und ich werde mich noch sehr lange an ihnen erfreuen können.  

Personal work

To extend my portfolio and try new things, I’m searching for open-mined people for personal work. These shoots are happening on a TfP (Time for Photos) basis, i.e. they are free of charge for both sides. In exchange, model and photographer are allowed to use and publish the resulting photographs. Experience as a model is not required. 

If you are interested, drop me a line!

Some (fun) facts about me 

I am 41 years old and live in Wiesbaden with my wife and my daugther.

I’m a self-taught photographer and like to ignore the rules from the school book. 

I shoot with Fuji X system cameras and analog with a Canon A1, a Yashica T4 and a Polaroid 680.

I have a soft spot for the style of the 50s and 60s. 

I stood on stage for > 150 gigs with two bands playing Irish Folk and A Cappella.

If I’m not taking photographs, I’m driving creativity and innovation for a better future.

I’ve been training the Japanese martial art Aikido for 20 years and give trainings on a regular basis. 

I love live music and collect musical gems at music.michaelweber.co.

I collect visual inspiration at www.visualstandpoint.com. You can find my photography mood boards on Pinterest, inspiring talks and quotes at learnthinkcreate.michaelweber.co.
