Nature and culture are my main interests and inspiration. Most of my pictures are from trips around Europe, Asia and Africa. Exploring right now: Australia! I'm 28, from Germany, living in Australia and working on a Ph. D. in urban green space. Photography is my tool to share the joy of living.
In my work I deal with the rich fields of nature and culture – and everything in between. My photos are from places I live at, lived at or travelled to (Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia). My interests are nature and landscape photography, macro and city photography – but I never stop experimenting. My love for photography began with long evenings of watching slide film photo slide shows and their way of taking you to different times and places. Starting out as a analog photographer working mostly with slides and my Minolta XD-7, I switched to digital SLRs and now use a wonderful Olympus E-5 and an E-PL1 with Zuiko ED and legacy lenses.
I am a Ph. D. candidate at Griffith University working on urban green space (for more about this, check my weblog Treepolis). My free time belongs to photography. Before starting my Ph. D. full-time, I worked as a freelance translator and language teacher in Japanese, English and German. I also publish the open research magazine Ecological Constitutions.
