Images bear witness to people and emotions.
Gernot started thinking up and visualizing stories at an early age. Since the early 2000s he's been working on commercials worldwide as a German-based director and DP. Most of his clients are in the automotive industry.
When he was offered the opportunity to work as DP on a documentary produced by Roland Emmerich – 35 Cows and a Kalashnikov – it didn’t take him long to accept. It was the beginning of a long, wild journey through the bright, glowing colors of Africa.
It awakened in him the desire for new, independent projects. Today, he shoots mostly with his RED Dragon and Gimbal - on many continents and in over 40 countries. Often as a director and DP but sometimes just as DP.
