In 1780 he was employed in Wildenfels as court painter and as educator of the children of Magnus I, Count of Solms-Wildenfels. In 1785 he married the chambermaid Wilhelmine Lüdecke. Their son Carl Christian (1788-1868) became a painter as well.

Vogel specialised in portraits of children. In 1804 he returned to Dresden where he obtained a teachership at the academy. In 1814 he became a full professor. He died in Dresden in 1816.
