Stefan Bäurle is a self-taught photographer living in San Jose, California. He is primarily interested in landscape, seascape and architectural photography. He has a strong sense of order (some would say it can be excessive at times) and likes to be imaginative yet keeping things simple. Almost all of his work is converted into monochrome because it facilitates focusing on light, shapes, structures, patterns, and contrasts. For this reasons he also frequently uses long exposure techniques which allow him to find the essence of a scene.
