About me

Already as a child I was fascinated by nature and the black and white quite artistical photographs my mother had taken with her Box Tengor. Neither my love for nature nor my enthusiasm for photography ever left me since.


Born in Upper Austria, studies of economics in Salzburg and Vienna, decorator trainee, language studies during lengthy stays in Paris, London, Spain and Switzerland.

Namibia Impressions

Frist destination for nature lovers and photographers

Country of infinite vastness, often nearly uninhabited:
The Namib Desert, the famous Dunes of Sossusvlei with their colours and structures, clear and hard in the morning, blazing and shadowless at noon, pink,orange, red up to rust during spectacular sunset. Lonesome flats surrounded by sharply contoured volcanic mountain ranges. Hassocks of grass changing colour from yellow to orange and brown and to a light silvery green at sundown, vansihing into the soft purple of dusk.
The endless Kalahari bushland, wild horses in surreal deserted plains, a sand covered railway track...
