Street Photography, Cologne

CHRIS MOCK PHOTOGRAPHY

I'm a photographer from Cologne and I focus on street photography, portrait and landscape photography.

There is also a little store to purchase prints and other nice things. 

This is me

My photo love story

I got my first camera when I was 14 years old. Ever since then I have been fascinated by the power of pictures.

Working full time as a sound engineer and tour manager gives me enough spare time to follow my two biggest passions - music and photography.

I mostly work digitally with my Olympus Cameras but also shoot analog films with my dad's old Yashica FR-1, which he gave me when I was a teenager. 

MY FAVORITE GENRES:

Street Photography

Street

Street photography is my way of exploring the world around me. 
Living in Cologne and not having the chance to travel into the country side every weekend, I explore the city landscape around me instead.

Portrait Photography

People

What else is there to say? 

A portrait not only shows the outside of a person, but also opens up a path into their mind. That's why I enjoy portrait shootings.

Landscape Photography

Growing up in the Swiss Alps created a very strong bond with nature.
I wouldn't be happy without regular trips to beautiful, quiet and empty places outside of densely populated areas.

If you have the time, please check out some of my other projects. 

Illegale Farben

Illegale Farben

Founded in 2014, Illegale Farben became my main music project. After the release of two records, we're currently working on the third album. 
The sound of Illegale Farben is located somewhere between Indie-Pop, Post Punk and Neue Deutsche Welle.
