„You don’t take a photograph - you make it“


This often quoted statement by the  master of photography Ansel Adams essentially describes the way I live my passion for photography.


My name is Achim Korherr and I am a fine art photographer.

I see fine art photography as a form of art that allows me to reflect a subjective and artistic interpretation of the subjects I choose and to involve the viewer in an emotional and aesthetic experience.

I create an atmosphere that reflects my personal view of the image, both by using long exposures during photography and by manipulating light and shadow when editing the image. My pictures are intended to evoke emotions, leave room for interpretation and personal thoughts and encourage the viewer to see the world through different eyes. It is my aim to build a bridge between the real and the imaginary through my photography and to present the beauty of my subjects in a unique and captivating way.

I find my subjects wherever I see aesthetics. That can be a rock in the surf or quite often modern architecture. I don't take a photo as a "snapshot". I take the time to let the surroundings and the subject work on me. These observations often create the basic features of the finished image in my mind before I take the photo.


From photography to artwork 


An important part of my artistic process is the printing of my work as fine art prints. It is very important for me to control the entire development process to ensure that the colour reproduction, amount of detail and durability of my prints are of the highest quality standards. I work with first class printers, high quality papers and premium pigment inks to achieve prints of outstanding quality.

The presentation of my work is of great importance to me. In my studio, I like to experiment with different ways to present my work to its very best advantage. From classic passe-partout to lamination on wood or aluminium composite panels, I experiment with different materials and techniques. On the one hand to enhance the aesthetic impact of my photographs, on the other to expand my artistic voice and discover new ways of visual communication. To ensure that every detail of the presentation meets my high standards, I frame my work myself and also personally cut the museum-quality picture glass.

I invite you to dive into my world.
