“J. Konrad Schmidt is one of the nicest persons I have ever met. Not only an extraordinary photographer but also a walking dictionary regarding photography. Too shy to admit his enormous skills but also somebody who does not keep his expertise for himself. Only 32 years of age, can you imagine what great career lies in front of him?!”

Ferry van der Vliet

Charity

Only those who know what’s missing will be those who care. For that reason i support charity auctions with my photography art work for years. I fund money for projects that deserve attention and especially for science against bad diseases to maybe make them curable one day.

  • NCL charity auction “LebensKünstler” in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017
    to support medical science to cure the deadly children’s disease neuronal ceroid-lipofuscinosesin (called NCL) in association with Union Investment
    www.ncl-stiftung.de
  • CHRISTIE’s charity auction 2013, 2014 and 2016 supporting the “Welthungerhilfe”
    Funding for a bio cacao farming project in Sierra Leone in association with AUDI cars

“I only know a few people who combine excluding opposites as nonchalantly as Konrad. An incredible love for the own profession. His photography is dominated by beautiful women. A touch of nostalgic inviolability. Technically perfect without being artificial. Mystical… deep… real… fascinating!”
