Analog Pool Photos – Eurotour Sankt Johann

This time I shot with film too, manual focusing and pretty low light in Sankt Johann Alpendorf was quite a challenge and very interesting for me.
Scroll down to see the gallery and let me know what you think about shooting with film theses days.

Eurotour Sankt Johann – Alpendorf

It has been a while since I visited the Eurotour in Austria. This time it was double sweet because I had my charming girlfriend on my side and because I was able to meet many friends again! I saw lots of new (young) faces on the tables, this made me feel a little old school 🙂
Happy to see that new talents are on their way and this makes pool alive. Congrats to Joshua Filler to stay on the winner side till the finals. Great way to be a runner up! Congratulations to Niels Feijen to win the title again in Austria!!

Ginky Memorial Tournament Steinway Billiard Cafe

I went to New York for my street portraits http://www.street-portraits.eu/ project.
Meeting friends was also another reason to go there. Gail told me then about the Ginky Memorial tournament and from that moment it was crystal clear I will take some pictures there.
 
I was surprised and happy to see Adam Smith there again, haven’t seen him since Derby.
 
A big thanks goes out to Thorsten for showing me around in the City!!!
 

Thanks to all the peeps there who made this tournament possible. Congrats to the winner Mike Dechaine!

Emotions of the European Pool Championships 9 Ball Finals

What a long day that was. After finishing the gallery I went running to the peer. It’s so beautiful here…
With the breakfast I tried to get some energy for the day and afterwards I went to the tournament.
This day I captured a lot of emotion from all the players with working at the same concept as the day before. No std shots, because I think this way I can make you feel how it is to be here. So enjoy the finales with me and Click on the picture to enjoy the gallery.

European Pool Championships Portorož day 18 (my first one ;)

Because I have so many other stuff to do, I decided to just join some days at the EC. After I told my mum I go to Portorož, she was so excited and wanted immediately to join me on that trip. We left my hometown at 8 am and hoped to be there 4,5 hours later….
6,5 hours later we arrived at the venue (with some nasty traffic jams in between)
After checking in, we went straight to the tournament area and as you can imagine, I started to take photos.
Somehow taking standard photos of pool players (down at the table) was getting a bit boring for me, so I decided to share how I see the people.
So after you entered the gallery, you will get my view of the tournament and the people around it.

WPA World Championships Youth & Wheelchair Willingen Day 4

Sorry for the delay guys, but I was a little busy after flying home. As usual you get all the information about the tournament on the WPA website, but this time I would like to tell you a little bit about the results and my favorite game during the finals:

 

Kamila Khodjaeva won clearly against Oliwia Czuprynska… It felt like Oliwia was with her thoughts far away from the Table.

 

Cheng-Chieh Liu played stronger then Tobias Bongers and claimed the title.

 

My favorite game was Between Jouni Tahti and Larsson Henrik. Jounai started with some good racks until he played a save. Hernick kicked that save in (long kick, object ball sticked to the cushion) , after that a thin cut, a bank and some other great shot, the…this rack was really great!!!
