Mirko Buchholz

Cinematographer | Bildgestalter | DOP | Kameramann

Born 1981 and grown up in Hamburg.

Since I started working in the Film industry in about 2002, I had many chances to present myself. In 'reality' just being myself and wearing shoes I like does most of this job. Serving pieces of my work and smart text here, I find much more complicated. So again, I had a long thought about what to write about me. Starting with: „I am a cameraman with a passion. ... I love photography... Even as a grandfather, a successful photographer..“ etc. And ending by saying something about how well my expierience in photography and lighting go together, for filming.
Which is true, and makes a lot of sense.
What I want to say is that I love my profession and to be working on beautiful projects. And I am hoping what you see here makes you want to contact me and have me working on your next great movie with you.
