I am delighted to announce that I will be joined this year by an exceptionally talented team.


To anyone interested in classic nude photography, Andreas H. Bitesnich needs little introduction. With 25 years experience, this Austrian photographer first grabbed international attention with his debut book ‘NUDES’ in 1998. His publications since (Woman, On Form, More Nudes, Erotic) have become benchmarks, setting the standards for aesthetic form and sheer technical quality. In 2016 he released his first tutorial DVD – Andreas H. Bitesnich’s Art of Nude Photography.


Daniel Gossmann graduated from the Vienna School of Photography, gaining his Masters in Photography in 2011. In early 2012 he founded Daniel Gossmann Photography, and within a year was already working with the best international model agencies. His whirlwind career has also included photographing many celebrities from Hollywood actors to Olympic sport stars. Daniel’s work focuses on the worlds of fashion, advertising and reportage.


Chris Kaltenbacher is Andreas H. Bitesnich’s first assistant on photo productions in Austria. Having been a workshop participant himself, Chris knows every aspect of the workshop, and works both with participants and behind the scenes to ensure the week runs smoothly and efficiently. This multi-tasker originally studied business, working as a strategy consultant, while managing his career as a freelance photographer. His own art projects deal with nudes and landscape.


Roland Pum is another creative and talented force. After graduating from HTL Mödling with a focus on interior design, Roland took over the carpentry business of his father. Parallel to this, Roland began attending art courses, and became intensively involved with the medium of photography, completing his Masters in Photography in 2011. Roland is an accomplished and passionate photographer of the nude. He currently teaches photography and image-editing at the LIK Academy for Photography


If you’re arriving by plane or train, Hans is usually the first member of our team you will meet. Hans is responsible for all logistics, including pick-ups and drop-offs, and the transport of all studio and production equipment. The longest running member of our team, Hans has been indispensable since the very first workshop here in Austria, back in 2008. He is a passionate photographer, who literally goes nowhere without a camera at his side.
