Notes from the Lab is a bi-weekly newsletter exploring the creative process, the rituals and the thinking behind being a photographer and filmmaker.

I’m thinking about the creative process as a lifelong journey of learning and discovering, about ups- and downs, about failure and joy. And I decided to take you with me on that journey, relentlessly sharing my findings and the thoughts behind them. I want to demystify my practice and start an open and honest conversation with you.

This newsletter is about the conceptual and technical choices I make, a documentation of my day to day routines as a father and creative, a journal about projects and a logbook of the stuff I’m learning along the way.

This newsletter is free, but you can always Buy Me A Coffee if you like what you read and see here. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Share this publication to your friends if you feel they are going to enjoy it!

Here’s a picture of my favorite writing place on a warm day:


I’m Ramon Haindl, a photographer and filmmaker based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

I work for commercial and editorial clients including Google, Meta, Porsche, Mini, AirBnB, Rimowa, Lufthansa and Netflix, among others. And I published portraits and documentary pieces in magazines like ZEITmagazin, Wallpaper*, The Fader, Monocle, M le Monde and Bloomberg Businessweek.

I’m the founder of a photography community called CULT.
