About Peter Runkewitz

Welcome on my "Martin Kohlstedt - beyond stage" - patreon. Glad you found your way here.

Hamburg, Elbphilharmonie (shortly before the show), Dec/21/2017
My name is Peter, I am a freelance photographer and have a special love for documentary photography.

More than 5 years ago, on 17 February 2013, I began an extraordinary long-term documentary journey, the end of which is not yet in sight. On this very day I heard and photographed  Martin Kohlstedt for the first time. Luckily for me, it was Martin's first public concert. Impressed by his way of playing the piano and by his persona, I have since then accompanied Martin as often as possible next to and on stage with my camera.

The following video is made by my dear Friend Patrick Richter ( and gives you a very good impression about the musician and person Martin Kohlstedt.

Now you have an impression of the music and personality of Martin Kohlstedt and also of what fascinates me about it. Whether you already know Martin and his music or you like documentaries in black and white, I invite you to be my companion.

Why patreon (now)?

5 years ago it was pretty much a „local thing“, by now the whole endeavour is getting more and more international. With increasing awareness and greater distances to the shows, the biggest challenge of this documentation is to cover travel costs. Every single Dollar is getting me closer to cover another subway-ticket, a meal, a room for the night or a flight to some place.

What you will get out of this?

You will get an exclusive insight of never before published material.

This includes backstage sceneries on tour, moments caught while recording, doing office work, attending at meetings, doing interviews and so much more.

Depending on your patronage I will even send signed prints directly to you by regular mail. (free shipping world wide)

Join me on this large-scaled journey with a pledge starting at $1.

About goals

Since the solution for my travel expenses is my main goal, I could have put this challenge into any of my chosen goals(here on Patreon). Instead I will keep you up to date within my patrons-feed (some of it even completely public) which my next targets are in the process of this documentary. This may contain special locations on tour, as well as other situations, like business meetings somewhere and maybe even a surf vacation at some spanish beach.

$11.14 of $250 per month
I will be up to reach a couple more locations within the EU to catch a few more moments to share with you.
