CHRIS MOCK PHOTOGRAPHY
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.
At the moment I shoot a lot with my old Polaroid cameras and different instant film materials, which fascinate me in various ways.
MY FAVORITE GENRES:
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.
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.
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.
Founded in 2014, Illegale Farben became my main music project. In 2021 we released our third album.
The sound of Illegale Farben is located somewhere between Indie-Pop, Post Punk and Neue Deutsche Welle.
Illegale Farben Studio
In 2019, my colleague Thilo Schenk and I starte to build our own studio in Cologne. Together we produce our own music and work for customers. We offer everything from recording to mixing and mastering and enjoy to use the studio as a creative playground for all kinds of music and art projects.
& Tour manager
This is my full-time job when I don't create music or photograph things.
Cough drops? When in 2020 the music industry was put into a come, I partnered up with my uncle and overtook the brand CARUSO. They are loved by singers and other people who rely on their voice.
