German semi-professional travel and event photographer with focus on Europe today.
I'm a human photographer and not a people photographer anymore. It means that a try to catch up the person and not his pose and artificial behave.
I've used flash for decades, but I don't like the color and mood of flash light anymore. The result is, that I try to use natural light for my pictures only
"I'm not taking photos - I make pictures"
This is my slogan. The background is that I'm not documenting. My pictures are captured moments but not snapshots. I use every technique of the digital darkroom, which helps me to create images. Streetphotography is the only exception.
I'm taking pictures since I was 8 years old. My starting point was midrange film (6x6, 6x45) and later on analog SLR's.
Since 2008, I use digital cameras by Sony
