Michael Klein was born in 1967 in Cologne, Germany

After travelling around the world and photographing for various automotive clients for more than 20 years, Michael knew the time was right for a new challenge. He soon discovered CGI Technology, which he felt from the beginning, was going to be a revolutionary idea for the automotive industry. Shortly after trying it, he was given his first assignment for Toyota and, the idea of a CGI Image databank was born. This led to the founding of the company Goodstock in 2005.
In 2007, after the birth of his daughter he changed his way of life. Now being the managing partner and CEO of Goodstock, he follows his passion for photography and is able to share his experience with clients and photographers, as well as being the person behind the lens.
After living in Boston, Los Angeles and New York for 18 years he now lives in Cologne Germany.
