Michael Trammer is a young freelance photo- and videojournalist currently based in Hannover and Munich. Picking up a camera at the age of 14, he has been striving since young age to professionalize his work in both still and moving images. Having finished school Michael moved to downtown Munich and started working for ARRI. Since early 2017 Michael has been a contributor to imago-images, covering events such as the Anti-Orban protests in Hungary, G20 in Paris, the Catalan referendum etc. In summer 2018 he finished his apprenticeship as media designer picture and sound at ARRI Media GmbH. Since September 2018 he is studying at the Hochschule Hannover Photojournalism and Documentary Photography.
One of Michael's projects is the blog 24mmjournalism – what started as a small project to make his pictures and opinions available for the public, has by now become a team project.
His personal approach and declared goal is to document the fast-moving and always changing world around us. Protests and social movements are an often chosen way to display anger and mischief about conditions in our society. Michael tries to deliver a wide-angle picture of those, confronting the viewer with the full width of the documented incident.
