My name is Christoph Papenfuss and I am a European professional traveling the world. Photography is one of my long-time passions that was kindled in high school. The strange joy of seeing images appear in front of your eyes in a dark room is still fresh on my mind and evokes pleasant memories. For me photography is not just about creating beautiful pictures – it’s more about opening my eyes to discover the world and show it in a different way. Whether you are photographing your kids, your best friends or gorgeous landscapes, you just have to keep an open mind and see more than others do. You will therefore hardly ever find me without a camera – even on a morning run. I want the finished products to show the beauty of the things that I photograph.
You might wonder: what is the meaning behind sftwins? It’s not a company, it’s not some secret code. It’s a name that was created when I lived in San Francisco and became the proud father of wonderful twin boys: my sftwins.
Today, I mostly focus on portrait, wedding and travel photography.
