KARSTEN STAIGER | PHOTOGRAPHER | VIDEOGRAPHER | ART PROJECTIONS | DOCUMANTARIAN AND WEBMASTER
Karsten Staiger's introduction to "The Way of the Rain" all began with a simple invitation from two friends to photograph a recording session in NYC. The only information he had: Montana Studios, performance piece, music, dance and a fellow German lady who creates paintings with help from the rain. Staiger knew he needed to captured it on video and since February 2014, he has been producing "The Way of the Rain" in video, photos and online. He could feel something special happening: a new family was forming. That was the beginning of his amazing adventure and now he is delighted and honored to be a part of an inspiring group of creatives. As an artist and commercial photographer in New York City, for over a decade, Staiger has built his career shooting advertising campaigns for luxury brands and corporations, including Hugo Boss, DeBeers and Nextel from his Chelsea studio. Always a passionate and committed artist, when not shooting "The Way of the Rain," Karsten Staiger can be found on the rooftops of NYC creating a photographic ode to NYC called New York Love Story. Evolving out of Staiger’s desire to approach New York from new perspectives and spectacular heights he continues on a journey to create a beautifully photographed, expansive collection of exceptionally high-resolution large format photographs come rain or shine.
