ramp.pictures is the creative and independent picture agency for photographers and filmmakers of ramp.space. It was founded by Michael Köckritz with the desire and the ambition to continue to develop effective storytelling in visual worlds in a new and courageous way to provide inspiring impulses and set standards for narrative visual worlds and visual narrative forms.
For more than a decade, the Auto.Kultur.Magazin ramp and the men's magazine rampstyle have been regarded as style-forming, stylistically confident, and innovative benchmarks in the field of creative storytelling; both are avant-garde in the best sense of the word and with their vision of narrative visual worlds and visualities have created a new awareness for the way we deal with storytelling today. What counts is the ramp spirit.
At ramp.pictures selected talented young photographers and filmmakers work together with the best ramp photographers, the ramp editorial staff, and the worldwide ramp creative network to develop and realize stories from the fields of fashion, automotive, technology, or sports with a sure eye for an effective combination of idea and aesthetics.
ramp.pictures is elitist in the best possible way and consequently attaches great importance to its reputation as well as to offering outstanding photographers and filmmakers.
ramp.pictures acts as an artists' agency for its photographers and, as an image and content agency, offers images, films as well as complete storytelling productions including corresponding, holistic creative services.
With photographic group projects and photo exhibitions, ramp.pictures promotes both the mutual exchange among photographers/filmmakers/artists/creative people in general and the discussion about image worlds, visualities, film, and photography. This »development program« is designed for the long term with defined milestones and goals.
