Simon Pauly Photography

Simon Pauly found his love for photography 10 years ago. While working as a lyric Baritone since 1999, he discovered taking pictures as a personal artistic outlet. Since 2011 he is working as a professional photographer as well and he is specialized on portraits for singers, conductors, musicians and actors. With his opera and theatre background he enjoys spending the time with artists and creating with them individual and artistic portraits which show their personallity and bring them closer to their audience.

After the first solo engagement at the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz in Munich, engagements at the Kiel Opera (1999 to 2004) and Theater Krefeld (2004-2006) followed.  Since 2006/2007 Simon became ensemble member of the Deutsche Oper Berlin to sing main Baritone parts such as Papageno / MAGIC FLUTE, Count / MARRIAGE OF FIGARO, Ping / TURANDOT, Dandini / LA CENERENTOLA, Harlequin / ARIADNE AUF NAXOS, Marcello and Schaunard / LA BOHEME, Ned Keene / PETER GRIMES, Silvio / PAGLIACCI, Konrad Nachtigall / MEISTERSINGER, Ottokar / FREISCHÜTZ, Morales / CARMEN, the one-eyed / FRAU OHNE SCHATTEN, Altgesell / JENUFA, as well as Belcore / L`ELISIR D'AMORE.
