the photographer

Hello there, 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.

Any questions or critique? Do not hesitate to contact me. Send an email to:
I'll come back to you as soon as possible.

latest additions & future projects

In autumn 2019 I spent two weeks in Northern Sudan and explored many archaeological sites along the River Nile. Have a look at selected photographs from my Sudan Tour.

In the late summer of 2019, I was in the Far East of Russia, exploring the southern part of the Kamchatka peninsula on foot. Check out the recently added photographs of my Kamtchatka Tour.

In November 2018 I participated in a two-week desert expedition in Chad, a country in north-central Africa. View selected photographs from my Chad Tour.

In August 2018, I spent two exciting weeks in Botswana and explored the vast, wildlife-rich Okavango Delta - the green 'heart' of the Kalahari Desert. Find out why the country is one of the great safari destinations in Africa and have a look at the photos of my Botswana Tour.

In 2017 I returned to Nepal for one of the most scenic treks in Nepal, the Manaslu Circuit. The trek offers breathtaking views of the Himalayas and is also culturally very diverse. Despite its recent increase in popularity, the Manaslu Trek remains remote and off the beaten track compared to the more popular tea house treks in Nepal.

Next project: I'm really looking forward to it.
