Originally from the northern part of Germany, I have lived in Brussels, Belgium, since 1998. But I leave whenever possible to explore the world.  Travelling, meeting people, discovering cultures, exploring countries ... making photos. This is what I love most, and it is so easy to combine.


Since September 2016 I have dedicated my life to my passion of photography.  My work mainly concentrates on wildlife, but I also love to shoot in Asia and do street photography in Europe.


My favorite continent is Africa. There must have been an error when I was born in Europe, for sure the stork made a mistake!

I love to be in the bush - breathtaking landscapes, great and beautiful people, an amazing wildlife, fascinating cultures  - Africa is a paradise, not only for photographers! But I also like Asia, my favourite here would be Laos, because of its gentle people. Asia's colours are a  feast for the eye and the heart ! 


My latest trip in April 2017 allowed me to spend three weeks in the Greater Kruger Area in South Africa. Scheduled for 2017 are still a Great Migration safari in Kenya and another safari trip to the Greater Kruger area, back to the Klaserie Private Game Reserve, and for the first time testing the Manyeleti Reserve. In March 2018 I am going to visit Botswana, the Okavango Delta, the salt pans and the Greater Kalahari. I am already quite excited what these trips will let me see and experience!


Please visit me on my homepage from time to time, more images are going to be added. You also find me on instagram, as photo_safari for my wildlife images and as travelling_rocks for the more general photography (travel, street etc).
