Born and raised in Germany, Markus took to the visual arts from a very early age. After completing an advertising photography apprenticeship in Saarbrücken, Germany, Markus came to California in 1997 to attend Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. He graduated early in 2000 with an honors degree in Photography and Cinematography and has been working for US and International clients ever since.
He's perhaps most recognized for his exquisit fine art nudes work, which is known and admired around the globe. In late 2010, Markus has been invited to partake in the 'Nude Network Project' curated by famed photographer Thorsten Jankowski, where his work is exhibited alongside internationally recognized photographers such as Sylvie Blum and Gregory Prescott. Markus is currently completing his first coffee table book entitled 'Curves'. He lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
