So in the last two weeks i only exposed one or two rolls. Mainly because i was busy with comissions – that are shot on digital. One of these asignments was a music video, that took a week of work. It was the first time i did a video with a professional purpose that is not just my friends  getting wasted beyond sanity…

You can view the video here at the band’s website: http://www.thewhothewhattheyeah.com at “video” or directly at vimeo:


please wait till it’s fully loaded – it’s imporatnt that every frame is where it should be.

(fyi: i recored, cut and post proceeded this video on my own, all for the first time) your thoughts are welcome and appreciated!

PS: I’ll be in berlin from 19th – 29th of november

now to some photos that are a month old already. this entry is about some random street a student’s revolt and a cock.

the frames at day or night are shot on trix at 400iso and digital at the demonstration at the end.

  1. Ffffirsttt!!!11!

  6. Schöne Fotos, wie immer.
    Gibts dich auch bei Twitter? Schade übrigens, dass du dich gegen Hannover entschieden hast (sonst wären wir jetzt Kommilitonen), aber absolut nachvollziehbar.

  8. v.a. die schlafenden studenten sind super:

    du hast noch die ultras 100 bei dir eingelagert? die letzten hast du doch vor ewigkeiten benutzt? ;)

  9. Such great shots :D I think that party in the auditorium is a cool idea – probably the best way to get back at education, party in the school!

  10. Students in your country have balls, I rarely see anyone protesting over here

  11. nice post, I love the shot n. 45. The video looks great to me from the “technical” point of view, however, even though I’m really not very knowledgeable about music videos, I think there should be a preference of “lyrics story or mood telling” over the “singer singing, band playing” view. The one that strenghtens the viewer’s experience. On the other side, I understand that singers, bands etc. have their own view (and budgets) which does not necessarily have to go hand in hand with director’s one.

  15. Great work as usual. Agfa Ultra 100 seems like a great kind of film, even though it seems to be discontinued.

  19. Ich kann mir denken, dass du dir niemals vorgestellt hast, dass jemand in Kolumbien dein Blog gückt.
    Keine Ahnung, warum mir das Schicksal hierher gebracht hat, aber hier bin ich und ich mag deine Arbeit sehr.
    Ich wollte dir einfach sagen, dass Künstler immer andere Leute glücklich machen können. Also als ich manche Bilder von dir gesehen hab, hab ich gelächelt :) Danke dafür.
    (Sorry, mein Deutsch ist nicht mehr sehr gut, ich hoffe, dass du mich verstehst!)

  21. superb! pictures from the university are my fav, especially 20897 & 20940 (the kissing couple! ah, they look so… real! a bold, fine moment..). And I love 20947, and the the balcony :)) And 0318 looks so unreal somehow. Ah, nice entry.

  22. Cool, I have the same Sennheiser HD205 headphones. Sounds good but damn those were tight at first! Almost crushed my skull.

    Anyway. good set. People coming down from the roof were my favourites from this post. This one especially: http://severinkoller.at/blog/wp-content/gallery/ende_oktober_02/IMG_8149.jpg

    It just looks so weird if you don’t know where it’s related to. Haha!

  23. How on Earth do you expose at 1/2 with the Leica. I can’t even expose sharply at 1/15th… I can’t hold it the way I held the R2M

  25. Severin,
    I use to browse your new posts at home, while having breakfast. The house is silent, the light is dim, and when I read “I think I’d like a liver” I burst in an uncontrollable laughter! :-)
    good work, man, as usual by the way.
    I like very much your photographs, the way you shoot, the light and this kinda subtle love for lit details in dark shots that’s so comfortable to me, who am used to shoot in the dark.
    this is what I call street, nowadays, and I’m pleased to see that someone makes it happen!
