Christian Baeuchle and Maximilian Baeuchle are two 20-years-old twins from Germany.
They started with photography when they were 15 years old.
At first they took photos with an older Bridge Camera of Sony. Then they changed to a Lumix FZ 50, which was great for them. They learned how to use aperture and exposure time and the photos got much better. In that time they were focused on landscape and animals. They both were / are autodidacts but they also read a lot about photography and were looking for inspiration. After taking photos for a certain time they had to realize that they were reaching their limits with the bridge cameras. So they decided to change to DSLRs of Nikon.
Now the whole photography was open for them. After a short time their photos got better and the photography was making more fun than ever before. They took photos of different genres [architecture, landscapes, animals, and still-life]. But then they got more and more interested in fine art photography, both in black and white and in colour.
Due to the goad capturing fine art images themselves, they tried the most different ways of taking photographs and edit them in various ways. Eventually they realized that tehy were on the right way. Nowadays their passion doesn’t decrease but it is getting stronger every day.
“Photography is MORE than a hobby, more than a job; for us it is pure fascination, it’s a fervour, you can’t describe…a fruition during which you forget the sorrows; there’s only you and the motif.”
Amongst others Christian’s and Maximilian’s works were honoured at the WPGA Pollux Awards 2010, the Epson International Pano Awards 2010, the 6th Black and White Spider Awards, the College Photography Awards, the International Aperture Awards 2010, the 2nd WPGA Black and White Awards, the Prix de la Photographie Paris 2011, the International Photography Awards 2011, the WPGA Pollux Awards 2011, the Epson International Pano Awards 2011;
