ME

WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE, I'M SEBASTIAN RAABE, A BERLIN BASED PHOTOGRAPHER SPECIALIZED IN DAYTIME LONG EXPOSURE PHOTOGRAPHY WITH A MAIN FOCUS ON BLACK & WHITE FINE ART. BORN IN 1983, RAISED IN A SMALL TOWN IN SAXONY (GERMANY) I STARTED WITH PHOTOGRAPHY IN 2014. MY STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY RANGES FROM MODERN ARCHITECTURE, CITYSCAPES AND LANDSCAPES TO MINIMALISTIC FINE ART. I LIKE TO USE LONG EXPOSURES FOR CREATING A SURREAL ATHMOSPHERE IN MY IMAGES. TO EXPAND MY KNOWLEDGE, I VISITED WORKSHOPS OF NOEL CLEGG, JAY VULTURE AND RONNY BEHNERT.

EQUIPMENT
