About Me

CURRENT MISSION

way too long to explain...

ABOUT ME

I am a freelance fashion photographer, occasionally going on reportage assignments as a "balance". Currently working in New York.

Since I combine work with travelling, i get the chance to visit amazing places on quite a regular basis, although at the moment i'm more looking into short stays in cities all over europe. No bigger journeys planned at the moment.

You can see the kind of work I do on my website on www.cklettermayer.com.

PHILOSOPHY

Every man has his own destiny: the only imperative is to follow it, to accept it, no matter where it leads him.

Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.

(Henry Miller)

I generally have a more "live and let live" attitude; Living in a world of contrasts, I can enjoy the poshest fashion parties as well as the drumming hippies on some forgotten beaches. Not always of course; everything at its right time. But always seeking new experiences, highs and lows, and curious to see what awaits me next. Open for most anything:)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Currently I haven't got a space to offer anyone to stay at. Although I'm considering a move again, and as of then I should be able to do so.

At the moment I'm very much up for taking people out for drinks or coffee, show them around either Barcelona or Vienna (depending on where i am at the moment). At least to the places that I enjoy most:)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Great ones! Met lovely people and had long fun nights in places I'd never have found myself!

Interests

Photography, Arts, Museums, Theatre, Literature.
Going out (not so much the clubbing thing, but the bar scenes), love live music!
Anything out of the ordinary:)

Music, Movies & Books

Just to name a few:
Favourite Authors; miguell de unamuno, Henry Miller, Anais Nin, Nabukov, Dawkins, Arundhati Roy, Dostojeski

Movies; Mostly very artsy stuff. Not a big fan of the hollywood blockbuster thing - more the alternative, subtitled sorta film. Favourite Directors; Wes Anderson, Jim Jarmush, Lars von Trier.

Music; Rock! Open for most things (although usually not a big fan of hip hop, raggae and electronic - occasionally yes, but usually not too enticed). Love Alternative rock, good jazz, latin music, classical music, experimental music...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Survived Afghanistan:) (to be continued though)
Climbed to 6150 meters in Ladakh.
Hitchhiked on the Karakoram in Pakistan.
Have been in the Potala Palace in Lhasa.
Have had international Fashion Photography Publications:)

Teach, Learn, Share

Just some good quotes...

One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.

The man who looks for security, even in the mind, is like a man who would chop off his limbs in order to have artificial ones which will give him no pain or trouble.

The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.
