Nature has always played a significant part in my life.
In my childhood I spent a lot of time in the woods marvelling at the surrounding beauty.
The urge to capture nature's beauty was a logical next step for me.
However, it took some years until I picked up a camera to capture what I like. The first years were harsh and unforgiving. I didn't quite know how to express myself with photos. The most difficult part were composition and post-processing. It was learning by doing, again and again.
Photography is a never ending path, you're never done with learning. There's always something to improve upon. Be it composition or trying new things you haven't dared to do yet. I'm my biggest critic and I fail more than I succeed. It is this that keeps me going. To get better.

I'm fond of British landscape photography. Joe Cornish's book 'First Light: A Landscape Photographer's Art' was an eye-opener for me and should be in every landscape photographers possession. It helped me a lot along my path.
Over the years my path lead me to stunning locations in the high north of Europe. The untamed landscapes drew me in completely and stirred something in me I can't quite explain. It might be the solitude and quietness you barely get these days in more busy Central Europe.
You can read about my trip to the Faroe Islands at on landscape photography magazine. I also wrote an article about my adventures in Bornholm, a Danish island east of the mainland.
Nowadays I mostly shoot close to home. I love exploring the woods and the countryside. It doesn't have to be always big vistas and unicorns and rainbows. Intimate landscape photos are often more satisfying and also more challenging.
Ansel Adams paraphrased it nicely: “Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.”

Some of my personal favourites.
