Rainer Schultz & Roy Metzdorf / Portrait

Rainer Schultz by Martin Bennett

Commissioned by the FT to photograph restauranteur’s Rainer Schultz and Roy Metzdorf at Rainers cosy restaurant Kurpfalz-Weinstube, for an article in the weekend edition of the FT. Both  restaurateurs are hosting dinners to mark significant landmarks in their respective histories. On May 31st , Rainer Schulz will celebrate the 75th anniversary of Kurpfalz-Weinstuben in the west of the city. In the north-east, Roy Metzdorf will host a party for the 70th birthday of his father Dieter, who inspired him to open his restaurant, Weinstein, in 1993. Both were remarkably welcoming and charming. I can thoroughly recommend a visit to sample hearty German cuisine at its best.

Shooting on the Canon 5D mk II with the 24-70mm f2.8L lens and the 85mm F1.2 L. All the images were shot using a balance between available practical light and two flash heads one with CTO to match the ambient colour temperature the other was boomed and set up as daylight. The post production was realised with Adobe Lightroom. The article will be published today – Saturday 8th of May. You can read the full article here.

Architectural details


Commissioned by Wir-design for their latest campaign, to photograph architectural elements in a graphic manner. Without the buildings and places being recognisable as any one place or city for their client Hi-Solutions was my brief for this location shoot. Shooting on the Canon 5D with the 24-70mm f2.8L lens predominately at the wide end of the lens at focal lengths between 24mm and 30mm. All the images were shot using available light. The post production was achieved with a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop CS4.
