the photographer

Hello there, my name is Peter Boekamp. I'm a photographer from Hamburg, Germany, with a focus on travel photography and a special interest in the mountainous regions of the world. If you stumbled upon my website there is a fair good chance that you love travel, being outdoors and above all photography. Good news! You are in the right spot. Enjoy and be inspired!

Most photographs on this website were taken with a Canon 35mm SLR camera (EOS 600/30) and a rather small selection of lenses. Canon's 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens has been among my favourites. Until recently, I shot (Kodak) slide film exclusively. I went 'digital' in 2015 and bought a Canon full frame DSLR, the EOS 6D.

Latest addition: In 2017 I returned to Nepal after 19 years for another trekking classic - the Manaslu Circuit. Check out the new photographs.

The following details come into price calculation: type and circulation of publication, size and placement of the image, period of use, number of images purchased, the role of my photograph in your project, size of your company, media (banners, website, booklets, catalogues) etc.
