About - achim burgardt | fotografie

I am a photographer, originally from Germany. Since 2000 I reside in the United States and call the Houston Texas area home.

In my high school years I started photography as a hobby. In later years it has become a passion and a welcome creative balance to my demanding daytime job.

Shooting (almost) exclusively film, I am interested in portrait, fashion, and street photography. A special focus is on black & white film photography, and I develop my film negatives myself. It's a crafty and rather laborious effort and it adds interest to my photographic experience. Rolling a well developed set of negatives from the spool is one of the most rewarding aspects of a photo shoot to me.

I divide my works into "posed" and "unposed" categories, giving credit to the nature of portraiture as well as candid shots.
