MIRKO BUCHHOLZ PEECK bvk
Born 1981 in Hamburg Germany,
based in Hamburg with my family - working where it takes me.
In my early twenties I started working in the industry to become a cinematographer and I grew up working in different film-crews in many different places. From my grandfather, a well-known photographer at that time, I had learned most things about the art and craft of photography. … and my fascination for movies and good stories in general did the rest.
Using light and camera movement for creating situations and moods, I learned from observing and taking pictures, from trying out and mostly from working with very talented people. I have been working as a gaffer for years, worked in different countries and I am traveling for photography. As DoP I shot commercials, music videos, documentaries, a feature film .. and many things in between..
I love being into the story as much as possible, a good choice of lenses, moving-camera shots and handheld camera-work.
For the record: I know how to work fast, on point and on on a budget, am an experienced operator and also operate Steadicam.
If you find interest in my work or in working with me, don’t hesitate to contact me.
