Who we are
It was a sunny and clear indian summer day in the heart of Saxony back in late August of 1980 when Marco came into the world. At the age of 14 he bought his very first camera with the money he gathered from his youth initiation ceremony. Time flew by and after he graduated from High School he did his military service with the german armed forces followed by an apprenticeship as a media designer. As if that weren't enough he educated himself further with a study in the specialty communication design in Dessau and at the University of Art and Design Burg Giebichenstein in Halle/Saale. As a student of Ute Mahler and Vincent Kohlbecher he reached his Masters degree in photography at the HAW in Hamburg and Berlin. For a couple years now he follows his mentors footsteps and teaches the fundamentals of his art at the University of Arts in Berlin and at the University of Halle. These days Marco lives and works in Halle. He loves his daughter and to ride his motorcycles.
Andy A. Balaz has been born in Vienna 1988, his travel and adventure attitude has been fueled by his parents, who took him on adventures around Europe and America in his early years. The passion for photography started when he got his first camera at the wedding of his brother at the age of 8. „Wasn’t the best idea my brother had“, he stated.
Next years he focused on sports and has been part of the national athletics team where he could celebrate a couple of nation wide titles. After his career had ended due to a couple of injuries he worked as a paramedic at the Red Cross, started a training as Helicopter pilot and studied real-estate management.
Due to his ongoing passion for photography he founded his own Company 2014 which was specialized on model and landscape photography.
2017 he has been traveling through New Zealand half a year, with just a motorbike and a tent to seek new inspiration. He found it in the freedom, adventures and challenges which come with traveling by motorcycle and took his photography business a different direction because: “with a motorbike i can go everywhere“
Tobias was born in 1990 in beautiful Dresden and still lives here with his family. After school he completed an apprenticeship as a cook. The craft of cooking, however, should remain after sufficient professional experience only as a small hobby for him. His heart beat faster for motorcycles and so he trained as a retail salesman at Motorrad in Dresden (Touratech Ost). Currently he works for KTM Dresden. From his confirmation money he bought his first camera, immediately "caught fire" and in his spare time he passionately immersed himself in the art of photography. With friends and family he was already on the road a lot in Europe and could reach many a goal, no matter whether with canoe, bicycle, motorcycle or walking shoes. Always with him: his camera. Since 2016 he has been working as a freelance photographer. "Discovering a beautiful part of the world by motorbike, making camp for the night and enjoying the moment with an ice-cold Coke: that's the way the world is."
Jan was born in 1987 in the beautiful city of Leipzig. Today he lives with his family in a small village near Grimma, where he is also involved in the volunteer fire brigade. After graduating from high school and a less successful study of business mathematics, he completed an apprenticeship as an IT system administrator. Since the desk was not the right thing for him, Jan now enjoys riding motorcycles both professionally and privately. His travels by motorcycle or rucksack led him last to Iceland and Romania.
As a child Jan loved to photograph animals with his dad's camera. It wasn't until 2014 that he bought his first real camera. The pictures on vacation quickly became a serious hobby, where there is always something new to learn and discover. Today he also works as a freelance photographer.
