I d’like to introduce myself: My name is Uwe Merkel and I am photographer based in Germany. I started my photography career already in 1991 when I worked as a photojournalist. Next to the journalism part of my work, I was also engaged in portrait, nature and still life photography and manage my own studio. But also my extended travel trips in many countries and different cultures had inspired my photography. Always been my passion: scouting locations, styling and photography. My main focus on ambiance, lifestyle and the ability to deliver inspired ideas is evident in all my pictures.
