Considering that my account is called Alexfotografiert (which means Alex takes pictures) you might have guessed right that I’m Alex and that I might be German. That’s Alexander Sobolla in a longer form. I live in Munich, Germany which is associated with the Beerfest and the Hofbräuhaus abroad and possible with arrogant snobs with too much money in the rest of Germany. Well it’s one of the nicest cities out there and yeah, I was actually born there, a real Münchner Kindl, in December 1981 (although no one can tell from my dialect, a the shame).
I now won’t bore with stories about which Kindergarten I visited. What might be interesting is that I shot short films a few years ago and that I now switched to photography. I still am a massive film buff and made two short films ‘Rundweltmädchen Gesucht!’ and ‘Nur ein Kuss’ (or ‘Boy lost Girl’ and ‘Nur ein Kuss’ in their subtitled versions), some music videos and stuff like that. Guess I wanted to be a filmmaker (and rich and living abroad with a witty pretty brunette) but you cannot have everything. Film takes an amazing effort and needs all the ressources you can get and yeah, I switched to something that is more direct, easier achievable but still very related to 24 pics per second. So I started photography and switched to an SLR in 2008 and yes, the stuff that you can see on my portfolio is what came out in those 3 years.
(And yes I've been lazy by post an abridged version of my webpages biography: update sooner or later, maybe ;)
