Have a look on my FIRST MOVIE: ( Since seven years I can live my dream as a professional photographer specialized on landscape photography. I‘m traveling around the world for about 6 month a year and also guide photography groups to Namibia, La Gomera, Tenerifa, Iceland, Antarctica, Greenland, Canada, Alaska the USA and Scotland. At the same time as I started to live from landscape photography I founded Photocube - a professional photography school for landscape and nature photographers. Now I teach about 1050 students a year in landscape photography, filter usage and image processing. My photographs are being used in many calendar projects in whole Europe and I sell my limited fine art selection all over the world.
