Following the study of photography in Nürnberg, Magnus found his home and the start of his career in Berlin where he began work for magazines such as Brand Eins, SZ Magazin, Dazed & Confused, and Zeitmagazin etc. At this time, he started shooting his first advertising campaigns for OPEL and BVG, Berlin’s public transport company. In conjunction with music labels and some friend’s bands he also realised and produced music videos. After working for many years across all these different fields, capturing people of all different genres in film and photo, Magnus developed his own unique style and photographic ‘language’, which always portrays people, whether musicians, politicians, or models for commercial campaigns, in an authentic and true way.
