Collin Key is the artist name of Claudius Nenninger.

The first profession i learned was journalism. Later i studied analytical and Indian philosophy at the University of Hamburg. I traded at the stock markets, rose children, work with refugee boys.

As a young man i set out to travel around the world. Since then i feel that life is a wonderful voyage.

And it’s great to have my camera along.

I consider myself an amateur.

Yet since Getty Images approached me in 2012 part of my work can be purchased from that agency.

I accept occasional assignments as well.

My home base ist Hamburg, Germany.
