Cheers, I'm Janik. That's my name and that's how I was born in Hamburg in the year 1991.
I took my very first photo in the year 1997 when my Dad left me waiting for him carrying a canoe on top of a car. I sneaked his camera and took my cuddly toy, which in fact was a grouse, for some fancy compositions with a cow.
I think this was the point when my creativity was unleashed. My actual career as a photographer began in the year 2008, when I finally got my first DSLR - a Canon eos 350D. I started off by taking snapshots of nearly everything but soon became more and more professional and even finished my first commercial jobs. I began with retouching my images with the early version of Adobe Lightroom. But the low bunch of features couldn't satisfy my needs so I began using Photoshop, for some serious post production or compositions. Nowadays I enjoy my workflow on a Mac with Aperture and Adobe Photoshop. I really like the way of combining my photographic skills with the digital art and that's what my work represents.
