Already as a child, I was fascinated by the beauty of nature. I made my first big journey in my early twenties. From that moment on traveling became my passion, as well as the photographing of nature and wildlife. I’m specialized in travel and nature photography and well known for my close encounters with wildlife. I’ve travelled to the farest places on earth and visited fascinating deserts, jungles, volcanoes and mountains. It’s my ambition to perfectly capture a scene so the viewers of the photo feel like they were actually there with me. Many of my photos were published and I’ve been finalist and/or winner of several international contests.
