I was born 05.01.1966 in Königstein/Ts , Germany.
My hobbies are Swimming and Photography. I started swimming , when I was 7 years old. I was a competition swimmer all the years through and even until today I am still a Masters Swimmer at the age of 52.
My father had a camera-shop in Frankfurt /Main. When I was 8 years old, my dad gave me a Rollei 35 Camera, so I could learn the technique of taking photos the right way. Photography started to be my favorite hobby . After finishing school, I was working 20 years in my father`s camera shop, selling cameras and taking photos of people in our photo-studio (portrait, wedding, family, children).
But my real love is now: Nature-,Sport- ,Animal- and Wildlife-photography. Since 1996 I spent most of my holidays taking photos of wildlife in South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia. In 2007 I came to South Africa for good to live on my own farm in the Freestate, where I have various game on the property. You cannot have it much closer. Every day is different and I have always a camera with me – just in case – a special moment might come up.
I like to share my art with the people , who are also interested in Nature-,Sport- ,Animal- and Wildlife-Photography and I want to give them the opportunity to buy my art.
