Hey, what’s up? I´m Matthias Hombauer.
I used to study molecular biology at the University of Vienna and when I started my Ph.D. thesis in 2008 I still believed that I could win the Nobel price one day. Four years later, I was frustrated and depressed about my work. Long working hours in the lab (including weekends), projects were not running well and the feeling that this job was not the right one anymore made my everyday life a hard one.
Unhappy with my life I decided to follow my two passions instead: music and photography. I have been a music lover since my first concert of Guns N’ Roses at the age of 13, when I started to get interested in photography. Instead of being stuck in my career as a researcher and feeling bad about it, I decided to become a Rockstar photographer.
It turned out that following my impulse was the best thing that had ever happened to me. Since then it´s been an unbelievable journey for me – working with artists like Iggy Pop and The Prodigy, getting published on album covers, tour posters and magazines, being a regular contributor for international blogs like PetaPixel, Manfrotto School of Xcellence, The Phoblographer, Digital Photography School (dPs), gig-photographer, Photography Blogger and advising people at workshops, exhibiting my music pictures, traveling as a tour photographer around the world.
It´s hard to imagine that, without having any professional training in photography, I went from being an absolute beginner to shooting for the most famous alternative bands on this planet. But following my advice here and being passionate about the things that you love the most will get you to places you have never dreamed of.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”5999″ img_size=”large” alignment=”right”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″] [bgsection pex_attr_style=”section-dark”][vc_column_text]
