I started with photography after inheriting my first film SLR camera (Canon FTb) which I still own. In 2002, I upgraded to digital photography and specialized in specific areas of Fine Art Photography including micro/macro, infrared, and B&W photography. I am also a passionate architecture, nature and landscape photographer. Additionally, I enjoy teaching in selected topics of photography.
As a person with a scientific background, I try to combine technical and creative aspects in my photography. Light is the essential part when I take photos, and the trick is to capture it in an appealing and expressive way. I want to reveal an atmosphere and my feeling at the time when the photo was taken. My work as an artist is fulfilled when you are amazed by my photos!
I still do film in parallel to digital photography. For film, I am primarily using a Leica M6 camera. In digital, I am currently using the Sony A7R Full Frame mirrorless camera which allows me to use M-, FD-, MD-, M42-, and EF-lenses with suitable adapters. My Canon 5D MkII DSLR is converted to infrared with a 715 nm cutoff filter.
