Some years ago I started to explore the possbilities of photography. It became my favorite and ambitious hobby.
In the beginning I used mirrorless digital cameras. But the great level of automatisation in picture taking as the vast possibilities of digital picture editing slowed down my learning curve. I ended up with tons of pictures stored in my computers memory – but I forgot most of them.
My decision to use manual, analogue film cameras has been the logical next step. I do not regard the one “being better” than the other way to take pictures, but I would say it is a completely different kind of photography.
Today I use both and I enjoy taking pictures on film, develop it and then create the positive in my darkroom as well as shooting digital pictures and sharing them in a second around the globe…
As a travel photography enthusiast my intention is to tell stories about life and people in a social or urban environment. I do not want to be disrespectful or offend anybody. If you find a picture of yourself which you do not want to be public please let me know. I will immediately remove the picture from publication.
For the old fashioned analoque processing there is a great source online at:
Since I do not intend to earn money with my pictures I decided not to put a complete copyright on them. All pictures are published under a creative commons license with the beautiful name “CC BY-SA 2.0“:
