After picking up a camera with 16 Magnus started to take photos of Skaters and Snowboarders.
In 2009 he moved to Munich to study photography at the University of applied sciences.
During his studies he assisted several international photographers and went to Cape Town for half a year where he also photographed his final project "south african beauty" for the Bachelor of arts exams. Since then Magnus is focusing on fashion Photography.
He lives between Munich, Hamburg and Cape Town.
Always aware of the moment, Magnus Lechner lets a situation speaks for itself.
Authentic movement combined with natural light, gives his work a unique, visual language.
Magnus makes firends with the digital age. He’s always looking for different angles, plays with shadows and crops to find that one special something.
To make his photographs speak without words the connection between him and the model takes first place for Magnus. Because without a connection between model and photographer a photo can never tell a story.
