Short introduction

My name is Robert C. Lemm1, Generation X (1965)

I was given my first camera in 19772. But I was fascinated by photography much earlier3.

In the mid-1980s I took over a camera4 from my father and also experimented with developing photographic prints with a friend in my own small laboratory. In the late 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s, I mostly photographed while travelling or at home with my family and the children growing up. I bought my first digital camera in 20005.

Since 2006 there have been regular small projects with musicians as well as publications in magazines and newspapers such as Goodtimes, Bluesnews, Gitarre & Bass, Focus and Süddeutsche Zeitung and as part of CD and DVD productions.

Since 2019 I have also been photographing headshots and portraits and, on request, private events such as weddings or family celebrations. When I'm not travelling with a camera, I work as a freelance consultant and trainer.

  3. This was around 1970 looking through my father's Rolleiflex 4x4 - I found the square picture format and the pop-up viewfinder very interesting even then.
