After years of travel photography with analog equipment, I started again with digital photography in 2006. After an intensive consultation on the part of Ringfoto Schattke, I first used Olympus cameras for 4 years.

Since I later also became active in the field of nature photography, I switched to Nikon in 2012, again based on the good advice at my local dealer. Via the D300s and D800 and the D4, D500 and D850, I have recently started using Fuji cameras and lenses and am well equipped for a wide variety of situations. The focus is mainly landscape and nature photography and here especially bird photography.

A mix of fast fixed and zoom lenses and up to three camera bodies accompany me on my photo tours or during my vacations, which are mainly dedicated to photography. Especially in landscape photography it is important not to be on location at times that correspond to the normal daily routine. Here it can go then also times at 4 o’clock in the morning, or become late in the evening, if the light is as I expect it for my pictures.

Since the middle of 2018, I have additionally started to do astrophotography. The progress in this area can be followed here in the blog.
