Mirko Buchholz

Cinematographer | Lichtsetzender Kameramann | DoP |

Born 1981 and grown up in Hamburg.

Telling stories, to feel them, to make them visible, is in my eyes empathy, is teamwork... Cinematography just as photography is about people and about telling stories. It is moving, and it is about light, because it is so much about moods and different realities.

I love and live my profession, and I love to give stories their vision. Please contact me, just to talk about it or to have me working on your project with you.
