Roland Obermeier

Born and raised in Bavaria, a Hotelier living now since over 15 years in Dubai, Marketer and enthusiast Travel Photographer. 50 countries, over 300 cities and counting.

Most I enjoy photographing land-, sea- and cityscapes. Also enjoy wildlife photography like the gorillas in Rwanda, was lucky enough to do some in the Serengeti but others like the great white breaching in South Africa, leopards, tigers, diving with whales sharks are still missing... long bucket list and growing daily with all this amazing photography being shared on sites like 500px.

You can also find me on Facebook, Google+ and Linkedin but I stopped trying to get a blog going, or Twitter.

Started off with film years back, got bored very quick and didn't continue photographing. Later I discovered digital photography and had to have the hottest gadget on the market right away Canon EOS 1Ds Mk II. Started adding on some lenses but while the speed was a WOW for sports photography I didn't like the resolution much which is why I upgraded later to the EOS 1 Ds Mk III which I enjoyed a lot more. For years I've been waiting for a higher resolution Canon now and since I didn't want to buy a Nikon D800 E I started researching medium format solutions during a 3 months break traveling through the USA National Parks. After well over a year I finally made up my mind it had to be the Phase One 645 DF with the iQ280 back. Stunned with the detail and dynamic range. Need these large files since we print them up to B0 size.
