About me

Over 30 years of photographic experience.


1985 first contact with photography as part of a workshop in school.… or the beginning of a barely affordable leisure activity.

1990s my first own analog Canon SLR camera… or how I realized it was not a good investment in the future.

2003 switch to a digital Canon 300D SLR … or life’s priceless lesson on never accepting a new assignment with new, untested equipment.

2017 Acquisition of a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV SLR… or how to accept a shortfall of 4,000 € in my Bank account.


Studied at the north coast of Germany also in Edinburgh, Scotland and in Cambridge, New England.… or how I found the girl I’m meant to spend the rest of my life with.

Major subject applied laser technology, therefore very familiar with any kind of questions about optics … or understanding that quantum mechanics does not always help.
