Nuremberg-born photographer Werner Gritzbach was educated as a photographer at the highly renowned "Bavarian School for Photography" in Munich.
Then he went to Hamburg to work as an assistant for Jacques Schumacher for 3 years.
After having opened his own studio in Hamburg, his first jobs were portraits of musicians, quickly followed by advertising work.
Several breaks led to interesting adventures like an Atlantic-crossing with the media-ship"O-Lucia" from Amsterdam to St.Marteen or a documentary about a drought in Zimbabwe, where he also worked as a cameraoperator.
The advertising years were followed by editorial work for magazines like Stern, Spiegel, Gala, Bunte, Playboy etc, shooting covers, fashion, portraits, homestories and reportages.
