This portfolio site outlines my photographic projects. The decision for it has not been easy since it puts me also under a kind of "self-made" pressure. Regardless it was time for the next step urging myself into comprehensive photographic experiences... 
In 2004, I discovered ambitious photography for myself. Meanwhile, it became my most famous activity outside work. Defining photography as a process of drawing with light, I decided for slow, manual film cameras. 
The enjoyable, careful planning of a photo session by choosing the right film and lenses leads to an intensive preparation. This developed to be my base for slowing down, thinking and creating far better photographs.
Meanwhile I reflected my photography as being results of hunting. Instead of creating pre-visualized scenes with models in a given set it is identifying an inspiring environmental set and wait for the right moment. This could be a light situation in landscapes as well as "something happening" in a street scene.
By this I always try to transport mood and atmosphere with my photographs. Nevertheless I feel not being yet at the end of my journey. This is why I highly appreciate feedback on my work. Communication is one key to improve. 
With regards to street pictures, 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.
Since I do not intend to earn money with photography I decided to publish under a creative commons license with the beautiful name “CC BY-SA“:
