Michael J. Rüttger, born in Fulda, began his training as a media designer for digital and print media after an internship of one year with advertising photographer André Druschel. He then worked as a photographer and digital operator at druschel-photography. After moving to Hamburg and an internship with Jan Kornstaedt (BFF) he started his own business as a photographer and digital operator.
Since 2011 Rüttger has been working for numerous companies, magazines and agencies. Always on the lookout for new, creative and inspiring image motifs, the Hamburg-born photographer likes to experiment himself in order to manifest his own handwriting, his own style. His main focus is on people photography, which appeals to him the most. “Extreme contrasts, strong colours, expressive picture compositions or unusual motifs are things I love”.
