About Klaus

›KME Studios‹ are Klaus Maria Einwanger and Klaus Maria Einwanger is ›KME Studios‹. He is both founder and namesake and has been in the middle of the action since the company began. As a photographer he’s most comfortable surrounded by people and, of course, food. A bar, a barbecue, and a set table: he captures the feel of the room and creates lively vibrant situations. Klaus is instantly recognizable by his wild hair and is characterized by his friendly Bavarian accent, which hasn’t yet been polished by jobs in London or New York. He is a careful observer, he is his own greatest critic, he pushes himself and he sets an example for his team. He dislikes vanity but appreciates an honest trade. As a BFF Professional and AOP member, he always has his fingers on the pulse. Along with his work as a photographer, education is also very important to him. Lifelong learning is his motto. As head of the BFF Academy, he can live this to the fullest. His shelves hold nationally and internationally acclaimed awards. However, Klaus Einwanger does not rest on his laurels – he’s far more interested in what’s to come.
