“As a child and teenager I already enjoyed capturing certain events and the people who were involved in them. Today, such moments are mostly photographed with a smartphone.

For some years now, my main interest has been landscape and wildlife photography, where system cameras are used. Landscape photography gives me peace from the sometimes hectic everyday life and distracts wonderfully from problems. It is a kind of therapy.”

The forest is one of my favourite motifs, as it provides different images of the same places in every season. In winter you have a wide view into the undergrowth, because the leaves are missing. Fog, which is gradually displaced by the sun, creates a mystical atmosphere. Spring brings a delicate green. In summer the forest is dark because of the many leaves, interrupted by single rays of sunlight, which create a magical atmosphere. Autumn brings a beautiful sea of colours.

The forest emanates gentle peace, I love it very much. I prefer to move off the beaten track without knowing where I will end up. So every excursion is a little bit adventurous.

When I was a child my father used to say „The forest is like a church or cathedral, we must be quiet“. I think of this sentence every time I’m alone in the forest. Since I like to move extensively in the fresh air, landscape photography offers me ideal conditions to combine two passions. I also like to cover longer distances to reward myself at the end with beautiful photo motives.
