Late night editing. Listening to my favourite Spotify playlist. Now that my exams and my vacations are over I’m back at my #desk #working on some new video, photo and website projects. A lot of stuff is going on and I definitely need more time to manage all this than the remaining three weeks til lectures continue. I’m dead tired but work has to be done. #editing #premierepro #thinkpad #riseabove

This is me, shooting the last @thdposse show ever. I enjoyed everything about this show yesterday. Great bands, great music, great performances, great people. Especially the people. So much talents united under one roof. There is one thing that even counts more to me personally than the music; it’s the thing about bringing people together. The Haverbrook Disaster is not only a band, but friends, and so many shared friends were there last night. Friends I haven’t seen for ages or people I can’t see often enough. Thank you for the music, and thank you for all those opportunities I got through you guys. Farewell, THD. #thehaverbrookdisaster #riseabove #thdposse #shooting #farewell - Photo by Nadine Schöner

Finally got some time to continue with my #NancyByBike 2013 series. After being on my bike for the whole day I was completely destroyed when I woke up in Saverne on day 2. I’ve really been struggeling with myself then and went for a walk in the city to buy some fruits and get my morals straight. Only got the fruits and took the next train to Lunéville. This train ride was the turning point of this journey. The philosophy of travelling and the morals of setting your goals revealed in a moment of clarity. Had some pizza with a bright smile in Lunéville then. The ride to Nancy was beautiful. Best weather, and an awesome road to cycle. When I finally got there I first felt triumph, then nothing at all. I had no idea what to do next. Just riding back home? No. I finally got what I aimed for. Being all alone in a city I don’t know and a language I barely speak… The ultimate environment for finding myself. #Nancy #challenge #riseabove

My hands were my third pair of brakes today. You followers of mine are the finest and most awesome people on tumblr, so these words might be misdirected, but I really have to say this: Attention is THE thing when it comes to take part in traffic. To take care of yourself you HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF OTHERS! Those things you learn in school; always looking both ways when crossing, a look behind when changing lanes or taking over - it’s taught for a reason! As I’m cycling pretty fast I feel an increased responsibility in traffic, so my attention is always on a high level. But this attention thing doesn’t work with other ones being thoughtless and inconsiderable. Today I had the choice between hurting myself and hurting someone obviously unable to obey that responsibility. This could have gone way worse. But this also could have been completely avoided. Take care everyone! Traffic is what YOU make of it. #riseabove #onelifeonechance Oh and the sad thing… The other person completely got what happened but neither did she help me up nor did she apologize. This actually hurts the most.

Sharptongue. I still remember those guys hitting the stage as ‘Elude the End’ for the first time ever back in 2007. Reminded me of a metal themed mini playback show, haha, they were just around 15 or 16 years old I guess but totally kicked everyone’s ass. It’s a nice thing still finding myself around the stage when they play a show. Seeing ourselves grown up both individually and professionally. Attitude is timeless. #riseabove #sharptongue @sharptongue

Instead of posting single images of my #NancyByBike 2013 trip I decided to make a collage for each of the three days on the road. Day one was September’s last Thursday. 107 kilometers to Saverne, slightly rainy. I rode along the #Rhine (middle left) visited the #Goethe memorial in #Sessenheim (top right), got lost in the woods and finally arrived at my sleeping place in #Saverne; Le Château Rohan after 9 exhausting hours on my #FixieInc floater. I got lost plenty of times and also took wrong roads. Never ride long distances on gravel with a racing bike. I tried it, it’s a huge pain, haha. Completely destroyed myself that day. Awesome experience to push myself so far. #Karlsruhe #Nancy #bike #singlespeed #France #challenge #riseabove

Seven days ago I shot the promo material for @sebastianbsclly’s and @janinehrdtr’s latest @bsclly release. This time I did both #photography and #videography and we’re all pretty proud of what we’ve achieved aesthetically. At the moment I’m scanning the negatives of the #Fujifilm #Superia #film I had in my #CanonA1 and #CanonAE1 and just had to show you guys how beautiful the location looks. Only photoshopped to blend them, the colors are untouched. Keep your eyes peeled! We’ll let you know when the stuff drops. #nature #blackforest #schwarzwald #natureporn #landscape #shooting #riseabove  (at Nord-Schwarzwald)
