Christoph is a very good photographer, capturing great street moments and really intimate portraits, transferring their special feeling directly to the viewer, making you forget that you are just looking at a picture. Christoph is one of the corner stones of 1x, having spent an immense amount of time and energy as head moderator to help making this community a better place. His effort, enthusiasm and strong dedication is an inspiration to everyone.

What shall i write about Christoph? Too less space for so many things. An honest and hard working team leader of us moderators with a plain and warm heart. A family man with a wonderful wife and child. What he has done for 1x cannot be written i a single book. His contribution towards 1x cannot be measured and framed in words. A highly respected man with a camera in which he is able to frame the beauty of live in a honest and simple way full of messages and love to his family. Christoph! Just Christoph!

I know Christoph from my start on 1x.
I have a lot of respect for him, as a fine photographer and as head moderator, the best 1x ever had.
I see him a lot, giving comments on all kind of photography and in forums to calm down the "problems" in moderation.
A man with heart on the wright place who deserve my respect:-)

my sincere appreciation for Christoph's work to keep the community on track and motivate others to give the best of themselves with a gentle force and much human care (sorry for bad English).
As a photographer I especially envy his gift for emotional storytelling porrtaits

It goes without saying that Christoph - known to me as Chris - a term of endearment - is a wonderful photographer. I really enjoy all his photos - they show the love he feels for his subjects. What more can one ask for in a photo?

What I would like to endorse Chris for is his character and the deep impression of generosity, patience and kindness, he has left on me over the last two years. It has been a l privilege to get to know him over these last two years especially as I have worked with him, and seen his offering as a Head Moderator to myself, the other moderators, senior critics and founders.

He is an excellent team leader, who sets a good example by using a calm approach to challenges as they arise. He is a very humble person who does not boast, brag, or focus on himself. I admire this very much as he then is able to offer to others...and he does.

He seems to have a desire (and has proven this over and over) to see 1x succeed, and continue to grow. He is hard working, and always available. He also has been willing to go many extra miles to communicate with me, and I have appreciated this as it sometimes takes extra work for us to completely understand each other. Someone else might have given up - but not Chris. So I have to thank him for that.

Ralf and Jacob have much to be thankful for - in having Chris as a Head Moderator.

Thank you for everything Chris. Your a wonderful role model.

I know Christoph since several years from various photography sites. I have always admired his very expressive photos. The fact that his images are technically perfect, must hardly be mentioned.

In the selection for the endorsement I miss an important entry: "For skills as a mod". Since I am a moderator at 1x I can see behind the scenes and I know how much work it is - also great skills are requires. His work as head mod impressed me at least as strong as his work as a photographer.

Christoph is the man who is to blame that I am at 1X!
He is a man who knows how to tear with others and motivate them. His pictures are for me always a pool of moods, skills and ideas.

Thank you Christopher!

Hi Christoph
I read now in the blog that you are pausing your work here so it´s the perfect "excuse" to do what I should have done long time ago: to endorse you as a photographer and to thank you all the patience and work you´ve done here in 1X.
Your skills as a photographer are already endorse by those who can do it much better than me: you are great.
My testimony is just personal. When I arrived to 1X, some years ago, you were the first person that "contacted" me because of my aproach in the critique section. I was new here and you were reponsable for me to understand in that very first moment what 1X was about. In that moment I thought: what a great site, they really mean "business" here (means: "photography"). I think this personal exemple extends for thousands new members when they arrive here and this is the front batle line of 1X: the first impression is usually the one that stays "imprinted"/"embebed" forever in our minds and you made this. Thanks a lot for this and for everything else you´ve done for us here on 1X. And from a professional collegue to another I must say: you were the "Kritik Der Praktischen Vernunft" (in what 1X principles concerns) of 1X. Be well my friend; wish you all the best and hope you stay in contact time to time.

Ralf used the right words : Christoph is one of the corner stones of 1X.
I endorse Christoph with pleasure, appreciation and respect for his photographic skills, for his integer and fantastic work as a moderator/curator and for his warm personality.
I joined the wonderful 1X community one year ago. Christoph was one of the first to establish a real human contact which made me feel home immediatly. His commitment appeared to be huge. He has such a strong insight of human kind, always present ready to help, to encourage everybody without making a difference between new members or established members, between beginners - experienced or a pro photographers. Christoph is a beautiful person in every way and I'm grateful to have met him here.

I am glad to have your support and inspiration on our tours and aside of them :-)

What I like about Christoph is that he sees images that would escape most good photographers. His ability to capture a moment and convey it to its maximum potential is, for me superb. The other thing which is worth its weight in gold is that just when you think Christoph has a style/genre he pulls something completely opposite out of the bag. This also just happens to be great. For me I endorse Christoph simply as a "fantastic Photographer"

It is big a pleasure to write here a few words about Christoph's photography. No need to write much, but better is to look at his pictures.. they tell it all...
Christoph's portraits are telling the story and showing emotions, also wonderful and moody landscapes are very impressive and a viewer will never get them out of his head. No matter what a genre he captures, his pictures are really powerful.
For me as B/W lover are Christoph's monochromes an inspiration.

I also appreciate very much Christoph's work as a Head mod here on 1x.
There is so much time and effort he takes to make the site better for us...

It is difficult to make a choice in the above list on the topics for which I endorse Christoph but I finally selected photographer as after being away from 1x (for too long probably) I always had in mind the B&W work of Christophe with a real artist view. No fancy effect but pure light work and vision.
I discover that work very naturally thanks to Christoph critique work which to me make 1X unique. Many site did create around but no one has this critique wise system of real contribution and sharing. And reading above, I understand how Christoph make this happen. Thanks for that as well !

I have known Christoph for sometime and i am proud to call him a friend. Although, i have not met him in person but with several interaction i knew and can feel that he is a very kind hearted person. I also feel his contribution to 1x has been tremendous as a moderator and are always impartial in solving matters and are always very patient in trying to help people (especially during the transition period from the old to the new 1x). hats off. As a photographer, the one word i can describe is "PERFECTION" he has a one of a kind vision that whenever he posted one of his artwork, you are drawn to it almost immediately. He is an inspiration for me and i dare say to many others here in 1x. Bravo!

My opinion is that Christoph has special sensitivity with portrait photography and child is what most called my attention to him, his sensitivity. I also want to highlight their contribution in the section "Critical" from the previous step in 1x personally served me very helpful.

I'm very pleased to endorse Christoph. I've had the pleasure of following his work here and on other sites for a few years. His work consistently displays his love of the craft and his affection for his subjects, often creating uniquely touching family portraits. The thoughtful approach he takes to making each image is evident in the results. I also appreciate his rational, intelligent contributions toward making 1x a great place for photographers.
Endorsing for skills as a photographer
Christoph contributes in many ways to the soul of this site. Also for me, when I joined he was one of the senior members who made me feel at home, who saw my concerns and gave me advice. In addition, his photographs express the same character. He allows us to share his love for his family in some of his pictures, and his works in the field of nature are full of respect and of a sense of wonder...
