“Each day without photography is a day lost"
(Fritz Pölking)

I wouldn’t go so far as to say that, but at its core Fritz Pölking was right.  For as long as I can think back, nature photography in all its facets has fascinated me.  It began with spider webs in my own garden and later it continued with my enthusiasm for the “Artic Cornucopia,” a landscape so full of life, full of color and full of wonder.  My new book Up Here, being released September 2016, is a tribute to this period of about 30 years.  But the Artic has not been the only one; the native German landscapes from the Baltic to the North Sea, from the Eifel region to the Oder River, and from the Palatinate Forest to the Bavarian Alps have also trapped me under their spell.  For years I have been fascinated and excited to photograph the diversity of our homeland, also keeping in mind the protection of our extremely important and large nature and biosphere reserves, and national parks.  The end result was and is the book Wild Germany, which was published by National Geographic Germany and became a bestseller. 

Due to environmental reasons, for the sake of photography, and for the networking, since 10 years ago I have been involved in the environmental photography festival ”Horizonte Zingst” in the sea-side resort of Zingst on the Baltic Sea.  A keystone of my photographic work has for years been the collaboration with National Geographic USA and National Geographic Germany.

I owe my signature photographic style to the developers of cameras and lenses at Leica Camera AG in Wetzlar, Germany.  My photos are owed to this equipment and to the luster of the lenses. My most beloved combination was: Leica lenses + Fujichrome Velvia 50 Diafilm.  Today, I can call myself an "analog man in the digital age," and am very grateful to have experienced the pre-digital time.
