Fotograf Thomas Hoeffgen


From the moment he walked onto The Nürburgring race track, known as the Green Hell, in Germany, with his first camera in his hand, Thomas Hoeffgen fused his old-world European gravitas with high-octane excitement. Thomas Hoeffgen chases joy, and tells the story of our drive to create a playground wherever we are. From the makeshift football pitches of Africa to the big budget sets of global, Western brands, his skill is putting people in the perfect frame to cut loose, and give direction that makes it possible to truly express themselves, then capturing those fleeting seconds with a taut, cinematic style. “With every shot, it is about how brave can you be? Knowing how little you can take coming into each moment, how late you can click, and how hard you can hang on so that you maintain your shot longer and longer, so you can drive right at the limits of the light and the movement, and get across the finish line.” Thomas has worked with big brands, Timberland, Diesel, Adidas, BMW, Audi, Red Bull, Tommy Hilfiger, Hilton, Reebok, Wrangler, Macys, Merrell, Under Armour, Les Mills Harman/JBL, Landsend and WESTIN, and a world-class roster of agencies like McCann NY, BBDO, TracyLocke, Pereira & O’Dell, TBWA⧵Chiat⧵Day Publicis NY, and Leo Burnett; since his award-winning book, African Arenas, was published, he has exhibited in major galleries around the world in London, Hamburg, Berlin, Moscow, Paris, Lausanne, and nearer home in New York, Michigan and Tampa. With his enduring relationship with movement in the moment, Thomas is excited by bringing his composed, energetic and cinematic eye to the moving image, it is a natural extension into the storytelling world of video. 3/5/2019 About Thomas Hoeffgen - Google Docs 9/9 “Our humanity is found in our ability to create a playground wherever we are” “Thomas envisions composition and perspective in such unique ways that the images he delivers are truly singular and proprietary.” - TED DEITERT, Tommy Hilfiger
