Munich, Germany’s Michael Steiner, a professional photographer whose clients include:  magazines, companies from all branches and fashion labels, is sharing with us 8 very sensual images of women.

Drawn to experimenting, he explored the differences between painting, photography and other art forms while he studied photography in 1980’s Berlin.

Perhaps you followers of history may recall, the Berlin Wall fell on November 9th, 1989.

Interesting times, what?

Michael’s first and strongest photographic impressions were formulated viewing the highly erotic and “very impressing” images of women by erotic art photographer Helmut Newton.

“I started right away as an assistant photographer in fashion-photography.

Dealing with human bodies – models – made me study human behavior.

I worked a couple of years as a fashion photographer for a big media house in Germany and learned to shoot for 200 days a year without getting lost ….

Again, my inspiration was to get more and more into personal portrait photography.

With the years, I also discovered a good sense for architectural photography and also some kind of still life photography, which is something I want to improve.”

Michael today still works in the fashion photography business.

“Although I do much more different things, like shooting company representatives’ portraits.

To me,  photography is a way to follow my daily inspiration.

Artists like Irving Penn, Robert Mapplethorpe, Albert Watson, Annie Leibovitz impressed me deeply.

They combine perfect technique with a very personal sight on people and places.

My strongest inspiration are the people that come to my studio.

When we start shooting together, I try to create an atmosphere that gives the person in front of the camera the feeling that I help them to see themself.

I do not think that I take a picture.

I think that the pictures are coming to us;  and, I have the task to catch them at the right moment.”

“Nowadays the digital world has changed our profession totally and the change is going on.

Nobody I know can tell where we are going and how the digital future may look like.

At the moment, I spend a lot of time with post production and editing pictures, making them printable.

I start to take little movies as well.”

Movies, always with the movies…
