He finished photography studies with excellent examination and ever since works as independant photographer based in Berlin.
Konrad works and lives as a “citizen of everywhere” on the old European axles between Berlin and Paris as well as Hamburg and London.
J. Konrad Schmidt is considered the “entfant visible” of young photographers.
“Konrad ist ein Kerl, der das, was er macht, gerne richtig machen will und nicht nur mit dem halben Arsch!”
His work is known to be a composition of timeless elegance, a real sense of story, melancholic seduction and an incorruptible glance for women.
In his personal projects J. Konrad Schmidt often uses analog black&white film as his way to tell a story within pictures. Not only in the darkroom this passion is a quiet search for soul within the moment of exposure. Up close and personal.
Konrad’s private life is dominated by fine black tea, piano based music and great conversations.

„There is a real sense of story, and the models seem to be treated with a much more humanistic eye.”
„Ein Mann voller Leidenschaften!”
“Pur und roh feiert er in hartem Grau und tiefem Schwarz die Schönheit der Frauen.”
“Your photos have a dreamlike quality with a fantasy element to it.
It always looks like you have a great personal connection with your models. Most photographers lack that personal connection.
It’s interesting because you’re ahead of the curve in your work”
