Rauhut was born in 1964 in the Ruhr area of Germany. He later moved to
Kiel to study photo-design and lives there still. He's been working as a
professional for over five years now doing stints as a photographer,
writer, and designer for various magazines and ad agencies. As exciting as
this might be, he says that when "making money gets too boring"
he schedules some "sexy photo sessions". What has been a hobby,
for a professional already ensconced in the medium on a day-to-day basis,
has turned into a major outlet for his creativity.
