Cover Image for Peter Bender

While he was young, Peter discovered his dedication to producing skate videos with the right aesthetical approach. Since then about 10 years past, he grew to be a full-time filmmaker and photographer. After his A-levels in 2009, he set a course for Paul Ripke’s studio in Hamburg, where he did a long-term internship in photography and got to know the creative business.

To push his profession even further he moved to Frankfurt and accomplished his bachelor’s degrees in time-based media at Hochschule Mainz. He already worked as a freelancing director, photographer, and DoP for several companies.

Living in his home area again, a rural, almost remote part of Rhineland-Palatinate, he fell in love with that area and its authentic culture. Food, wine, and working with authentic people became motifs of his projects. Depicting the reality in an aesthetically refined way, his style remains very natural even though you will always notice a commercial touch to it.
