Date of birth: 08.11.1986

I was born in Starnberg in the south of Germany in November 1986.

I´m a passionate wildlife photographer and I am currently living in Paris. I started photographing in 2004, when my family decided to make a safari in Kenya. I purchased my first analog Canon EOS600 and a few lenses. After the Safari in Kenya I was so fascinated by photography that I decided to dip a little deeper into it. Over the years I gained a lot of knowledge on photography through the Internet and friends. Since 2 years I solely photograph with digital equipment.

My major interest in photography is wildlife photography.

Since July 2008 I'm a full-member of the Gesellschaft Deutscher Tierfotografen (GDT). In May 2009 I founded the GDT Jugendgruppe and encourage young talented nature photographers to show their work.

In the past years I have visited quite a few countries, such as:

  • Massai Mara
  • Martinique
  • Senegal
  • Egypt
  • USA
  • South Africa

Currently I'm using Canon Digital Camera and lenses from Sigma,Tamron and Tokina ranging from 12mm - 500mm and whole bunch of other stuff for my nature photography.
