My Occupation Independant Photographer
My Bio I was only 8 when I received my first camera, but even then already I liked taking pictures. It took me some time before I received a better camera, and finally, at 18, my first SLR. At that age I also did the whole work in the laboratory myself, in B&W only, of course.
Since then I never stopped taking pictures, changed several times the camera, but never the brand, but only in 2007 I finally had the opportunity to work fully as a professional photographer.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
a trip on a petrol tanker I did at the age of 22. It was my first trip overseas, the only major trip on a vessel and the only time in my life I also wrote a diary.

über meine Seereise auf einem Erdöltanker als ich 22 Jahre alt war. Es war meine erste Reise Übersee, meine einzige grosse Reise auf einem Schiff und das einzige Mal, dass ich ein Tagebuch führte.
