His etchings provide us with a picturesque view of the Nürnberg of his time. He was also a prominent portrait painter for the local patricians. His portrait of Johann Neudorfer and his son is in the Alte Pinakothek in Munich. A self portrait from 1614 can be found at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nürnberg.
