Poolsynergy – Thankful


Pool photography and playing takes a lot of my energy. But it also gives a lot of energy.
At this edition of Pool Synergy I wanna share some my thankful moments.


At the Sarajevo Open a player (Karlo) came to me and told me that he likes my pictures a lot and meant that nobody before did such great photos during that tournament.I had similar experiences at the World Team Championship, during my visit in Chicago, in China and so on.
You know, I work as hard as I can on taking photos and it costs a lot of energy to develop them at night, but this moments make me forget all that and put a big smile in my face.



To meet new people around the globe and hang out with the players is the next thing I enjoy a lot. Hanging out with Sarah, Jason, Mike and the Brits in China, sitting together with Samm and Vanessa at Derby, Joking around with Johnny during the WTC or listening to guitar music during the Sarajevo Open with people I know are very unique moments I will never forget.



Also shooting people on the street can be very satisfying. Often its strange and I have to trust my gut feeling. But often people where coming to me to say thanks for taking pictures of them or just started to chat with my about what I do and so on. These moments are great too.



Some years back I was practicing a lot and it took a while until I was able use all my things I learned on the table. I stopped serious playing right now, but I will never forget the moments under pressure and nervousness on the table. To still be able to run out a table during this moments is one of the best feelings I had.



I am thankful to all the people who helped me thru all the years. I don’t want to specify everybody, that would be too much. But there is one person I have to mention:


My mum. Without her I would not be able to do all this things. She is always here for me and takes care about everything when I am not home. She supports me a lot and never would complain about anything. Thanks mum!
