Featured Artist – Thomas Kilian
Thomas Kilian was born in 1973 close to Stuttgart, Germany. He started taking pictures in an early age… but nothing more than the usual pics you do on holiday with no real artistic demand. After buying his first digital DSLR he discovered the possibilities of creating the pictures he wants. It took some more time for him to discover the power of Photoshop, then he started creating the style of pictures you now see on his Facebook page or Instagram – a little more than three years ago. As a video gamer for 30 years and a fan of Fantasy, Horror, and Scifi-Movies, it’s clear where his inspirations come from. They were always there, but with Photoshop now he has the tool to bring the images in his head onto the screen. Thomas loves Dark Art, Cosplay (especially game or movie characters) and sometimes they are sensual, but always with a dark touch.
Thomas has his own little studio with just a grey backdrop close to his home where he takes the basic pictures of his models. Thomas considers himself just a hobbyist, having a full-time job as an IT-Specialist and project manager, so coming home after days of work just means that’s he’s going to his studio or sit in front of his computer to work on the images taken during past photo shoots.
Thomas is married to his lovely wife who gives him the time he needs for creating his pictures, and sometimes she models in front of the camera.
After switching from Canon (450D -> 60D -> 5DMk3) he now works with a Sony A7R2 and mostly with the Sony Zeiss 55mm/1.8 lens.
Thomas will continue creating his pictures for himself and his models – because he loves making them… and if there are other people out there who also likes his work, he is happy about that too.
