Christoph Schaller Blog

I’m featured in the January 13 Issue of Elle Korea. Here is the interview in English:

My name is Christoph, I’m from Munich, Germany and I’m 22 years old. I’m a photographer, filmmaker and student.

I’ve always been interested in fashion and when I turned 18 my dad gave me my first camera. I started taking pictures, I was very ambitious and got better and better. Founding a blog was the next step for me, I wanted to share my images with the world and see how far I could get. I’m very proud for what it has become and for what all the great opportunities it has given me so far.

My signature style I’d say is a leather biker jacket, skinny jeans and some sneakers. I like to mix minimalistic items with rock’n roll pieces. When I dress up I just wear some slim fit shirts, maybe a blazer. I prefer clothes that fit really well and look sharp.

I don’t really have one fashion mentor. I get influenced by a lot of different people… I’m a big fan of British style and bands like One Night Only or The Kooks, I guess they’re a big influence.

I couldn’t live without inspiring people, my friends, my camera, excitement and experience.

When I’m in Paris, my hottest hang out places are: Colette – best shop for books and magazines, Jardin des Tuileries – I love sitting in the chairs, enjoying the sun and watching people.

The girl of my dreams is funny, not taking herself to seriously, ambitious and confident, someone you can run away with. A style of girl that fits for me is rock’n roll yet chic. Casual but fashionable.

On my iPod right now is: Crystal Fighters – Love is all I got / Azealia Banks – 1991 / One Night Only – Say you don’t want it / Life in Film – Carla / Tom Odell – Another Love

As a special treat I love to just hang out with my friends at the see, enjoy the free time, read magazines and have fun!

In five years I’d like to be a successful photographer and entrepreneur, working for Vogue and others!

Another update from Rio with some pictures showing what we’ve been up to the last couple of days. Unfortunately it has started raining a lot which meant we couldn’t start filming yet (will tell you more about the project soon!) but I’m positive it’s going to be better the next days. Follow me on Facebook for more updates.

We arrived in Rio De Janeiro on Saturday night and spent the first two days doing kind of the classics: Pão de Açúcar, Ipanema, etc. We’re going to start filming and shooting in the next few days. So excited! Will keep you updated on here and on my Facebook Page.

I recently got asked to shoot for Freunde von Freunden and I must admit I first hesitated because it’s quite different to what I usually shoot and I wasn’t sure if I was any good at shooting interior but in the end I said yes. I really like the idea of visiting someone interesting in their home, listen to their stories and get the vibes of their place. You can see the full story + a little film by my friends We Make Them Wonder on FvF and also on Zeit Online.

I spent a couple of hours in Brussels (Belgium) today, exploring the city centre and enjoying the great architecture. I was amazed by the amount of beautiful little shops they have here! So nice! I’m continuing my journey tomorrow, I’ll first go to Antwerpen then Gent. Can’t wait! Please let me know if you have any tips for either of the cities! Have a good weekend, guys!
