The magnificent Andreas Ortner.

How many people in the world like music? How many like to sing, sign up for singing competitions, how many want to make singing a livelihood? Quite a number of people around the world right?

So the question is, how many percent of them sing and performs on a level such as Adele, Whitney Houston, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga and those who sell out big venues time after time? Only a few who are praised worldwide, right?

A comparison: how many people like photos? Who takes pictures themselves, thinking that they are quite good at taking pictures and would have loved to work with photography?

And the question now is, how many of them have shot pictures that majestic fronts the cover of VOGUE, ELLE, BAZAAR and other big fashion magazines? Also only a few of the best right?

Now you will meet one of them. It is a great pleasure for TAMOTE to present the incredibly nice, down to earth, spectacularly talented and hardworking Andreas Ortner.

What kind of mindset do you think has helped you the most in the path to success in your profession?

- From the beginning of my carrier when I started 14 years ago in Brooklin the financial part wasn't my main goal. My mind was a 100% set to create something special and beautiful. If the result made me happy i achieved my goal. I Also I knew from the beginning that the only way I wanna do this is work harder than anyone else and I aim high. All or nothing!

I bought my first analoge Pentax on a flee marcet in Williamsburg and thought my self how to take pictures in an old school way. Learning by doing.

Photography is just a part of it that makes me very happy. My dream is that I'm able to continue doing this on this level for many more years and learn and grow from project to Project.

What are you most looking forward to in the time to come when party pooper corona takes a chill pill and things are normalized again?

- As soon as Corona takes a chill I'm super exited to travel again, see my friends, family and clients all around Europe again! Pick up my beloved camera and finally create some beautiful stories outside in this amazing world we're living in. From working 200% to go down to zero was a shocker in the beginning but the good thing was I had time for my family and work on some future Projects.
