Photography & me

I am an enthusiastic amateur photographer living in Salzburg, Austria. Seeing the world through a camera has always fascinated me. At the age of 10, I got my first camera from my father who also was an amateur photographer. Sometimes I was allowed to watch him in his darkroom and I still can remember the magic moment when the white paper suddenly turned into a photo. And I fondly remember listening to my parents’ debating about pictures. So photography also became one of my hobbies. But with the amount of new possibilities offered by the digital photography and Adobe Photoshop, the hobby became a passion. I find my favorite motives in nature – water, from the raindrop to the wave, flowers and trees, animals, landscapes… Not only portraying them in an aesthetic way, but to capture their spirit is challenge and enjoyment for me. Since 2017 I am a member of the Salzburger Fotoklub.
