Artist: Upon finishing language school in St. Petersburg, Florida, Uder moved to Los Angeles, California to study at the prestigious Stella Adler Academy of Acting and Theatre, where he mastered his craft for two years. It was during this time, as a means to support his acting, both creatively and financially, that Uder wandered by coincidence into the visual world of set design.
At the beginning of his career, he had the honor of being a production assistant and set designer on photography shoots for print publications such as Vanity Fair, Vogue, Esquire, FHM and Cosmopolitan. He was able to collaborate with iconic photographers including Mark Seliger, Robert Maxwell, and Chris McLaren, just to name a few. Additionally, Uder collaborated alongside Mauro Borrelli, the acclaimed conceptual designer of “Batman Forever”, “Dracula” and “Planet of the Apes”.
Uder currently resides in Los Angeles as well as New York City, however, he extends his travels to his hometown in Germany and Spain, where he finds the visual influences are capable of sparking his imagination and allowing him to dominate his creative outlet.
