Ein Foto des Meisters Lars Oliver Kniest selbst

I never felt a really close connection to photography all my life. So this can be called a late found passion. Gratefully "still and forever" close internet-friend Monika, finally talked me into buying a camera and giving it a try. I bought my first camera in 2006. The composition of my pictures is strongly influenced by my favorite childhood literature: comics! A love for strong colors and harsh contrasts defines the style of all my pictures. The pictures I take don't ask for a deaper meaning... they just want to please. At least that's what I am trying to accomplish...

just some news about the past weeks

Hey Folks,

as already mentioned in my last blog entry I have been to Mallorca and am back (obviously) meanwhile.
Had a great time there together with Dana & martin and all the people I met there, did great shoots with close friend Jenny and with Plastique InVeins from Berlin.
Though the weather was not as sunny as hoped and expected (we had two days of rain and it was pretty windy in the late afternoon always), I was lucky to do my shoots with nice weather and never forgot to enjoy my free time as vacation.
We were residing in a 4 bedroom finca with our own pool, had bbq in the evening, even met a girl from GNTM (Martin had a shoot with her) and a professional football player (his girlfriend was shot by Martin as well) and lots of other very nice people.
Shortly before my trip I did a spontanous little shoot with "Mrs. Neighborhood" Larissa/Kim and two shoots since I am back. One with Killerbarbie 69 and one with Maya/Kiira.
On Mallorca I did a shoot for NoBalls Rec. again (for flyers) and the shoot with Maya/Kiira was for the same intention.... so stay tuned, there is more to come
and don't forget to visit me on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/OKn.Photography)
there you can see some first results of my shoots on Mallorca


None so far.

I'm a bitch :D

okay... just noticed again how much time has passed since my last entry in the blog. Obviously I am not very good at this, keeping you up to date, reporting about my life.
I would promise it will get better, but I know myself too good ;)


so at least I can tell you something by now.
I will be travelling to Mallorca with close friends (Dana & Martin Höhne) and we will do some shoots there. A little bit fashion, a little bit nude - but always MY STYLE of course.
As models I have a good buddy from Cologne (Jenny), which I shot three times already, and Cindy (Plastique InVeins) from Berlin for one day. 
Today I received a request if I would be interested in having some of my pictures published in an erotic art magazine
well, this needs to be clarified still

when I am back, I will proceed with 2 pictures/sets for my project.
one with 8 models showing a fairy tale based interpretation and another one with only one model showing some ethic-religious background - always (of course) in the well known provoking way ;)


stay tuned


None so far.

temporarily finished

the "under construction" phase is temporarily finished.
In the end I have to confess the update of my galery is not THAT big of a change.... there are some all-time favorites which seem to be staying forever in my gallery.

though I have some more extraordinary pictures done for my project, they are not meant to be uploaded before the exhibition I plan somewhere and somewhen in the future.
I want to present them there exclusively

Yeah and that exhibition will be an exclusive OKn killer one!!! I will be there 4 sure and my rapefull eyes will be blinded by realizing his colourefull shots of mayhemic sin & erotic grace.....

news to my selfmade project

Donnerstag, 09.08.2012 15:49:44h

as told before I actually do a longterm photo project (supposed to take till about end of 2013) together with my make-up artist and close friend Nastasia.
This project contains pictures with ideas and kind of storyboards. Some will be provoking, some will be kind of weird fairytale sceneries and some an mixture of it :)
The first two pictures were already done with beautiful model and actress Christiane Werk.

Actually I am in a preparation mode for the next 3-4 pictures with themes like Peter Pan, anorexia, America, Alice in Wonderland. I casted already models for each of these ideas and am now trying to oragnize accessoires and doing a research for matching locations.

Next to come will definitely Peter Pan. Nastasia found an AWESOME location for it, I could get the models I dreamed of for the idea, the date is scheduled and almost all accessoires are complete - only a few details are missing yet.
So stay curious and hope you will be as excited about the result as I am about the realization of this shoot

Hi Oliver, finally got round to checking out your website after you mentioned it when you were in the UK a month ago. Looks very good. Definitely something else :). Great work and nice to know about your passion for photography. Keep up the good work and enjoy it!
