Kai Stiepel


Maybe it is the memory of California where he was born or the special quality of Pacific light that gives his images such a throbbing intensity. Kai Stiepel floats a green chili in a bed of green light or bathes a cob of corn in golden colour.

The American-born photographer studied at the Lette Verein in Berlin and then worked as a photo assistant until he set up his freelance studio in Munich in 1994. His unique images have convinced commercial clients like BMW, McDonalds, Siemens, Escada and many others who use his photos in their ad and image campaigns.

His editorial work appears in magazines ranging from Playboy to Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan. He has also produced food images for cookery books published by Gräfe und Unzer.
