20 August 2013
I’m a German born Australian living in Sydney for over a decade. I fell in love with Sydney, Australia and the Australian people the very first time I’ve visited and soon returned to live here for good.
I got my first SLR camera when I was 15, following my grandfather and father into photography and I was hooked ever since.
My photography took a back seat while my son was younger but the fire was reignited when upgrading to a digital SLR camera in 2010. My son is now older and is picking up the camera now as well. I’m glad to see the tradition is continuing.
I have a passion for landscape photography and feel very fortunate to live in Sydney with its many beaches, fabulous cityscape and close proximity to the Blue Mountains and nearby Central and South Coast. Photography has given me the opportunity to see so much more of this beautiful country.
I enjoy the ever changing landscapes and love waking up in the early mornings, grabbing my gear and capturing the sunrise, exploring new sites and watching the day start. There is almost nothing more fulfilling than breathing in fresh sea or mountain air, listening to the sound of nature and starting the day with that purity.
Second to none is finishing a day by watching the sun set behind the Sydney Harbour Bridge from the many places in Sydney Harbour.
I have yet to discover so many places and am looking forward to the journey that is lying ahead of me.
