That's me ...

 

Limited by the world of standards, I try to incorporate a little bit of personality into my photography. Besides graphics, design and art, sports and trevelling provide a good balance to my career as an engineer.

 

 

I was born into the "VW Golf generation" (1974). 10 years later I developed my first rolls of film in my father’s darkroom. Then came a long “creative break” … I find the camera to be more than just an instrument for taking snapshots. This notion has become especially clear to me during my excursions. I find the most excitement in creating photographs that say more than typical postcards, photographs that captured the emotion and excitement of the moment. My primary objective in photography is to stimulate the viewer’s mind, to inspire the viewer to find meaning in a photograph. I want my viewers to lose their holistic view of the world and be captivated by the details of my photographs. I believe that details are the best way to express the often inexpressible. Therefore, exceptional situations and the mood, feeling and emotions they inspire are the focus of many of my pictures. I have always found inspiration in details, and this is reflected in my photography.

Thus, my best pictures are a direct reflection of my experience and my travels. Almost half of my life has been spent abroad. Although I must admit that the “Big Apple” is my passion, I am also very fond of Asia, South America, and Europe (my home!).

I began photographing as an autodidact with a basic SLR-camera. With time, both my knowledge and my equipment expanded to meet the increasing demands of my creativity.

I welcome your comment and suggestions concerning my work, and I hope my work will lead to new friendships…
