I was born in Kronach/Ofr. and studied Physical Geography at the University of Bayreuth. Currently, I’m working as a satellite remote sensing specialist close to Munich.

I started to photograph with digital SLR cameras in 2007. Ever since then, the grand landscapes of the North, the mighty Alps and the rural scenery around my Franconian home have become my main interest. My passion for being outdoors, long distance hiking and mountaineering is feeding my photographic inspiration.  Nikon’s F100 and Z6 are my tools.
