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 fully 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 favourite 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 August/September 2017 allowed me to spend time in the Kenyan Maasai Mara to witness and photograph the annual Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra. It was a stunning experience, with a lot of predator activity - this time of the year is like a big 'all you can eat' buffet for them! 

 

At the end of 2017 I'll be back in South Africa, visiting the Klaserie and Manyeleti reserves. It will be full summer then, hot (very hot!) and humid. This should give me plenty of great moments of bird watching, and it is the time when lots of youngsters are around - so again a good time for predators.

 

In spring 2018 I am going to visit Botswana, the Okavango Delta, Nxai Pan and the Greater Kalahari. I am already quite excited what these trips will let me see and experience!

 

And just now we are in the planning phase for our big 2018 safari in South Africa: Klaserie, Timbavati, Kruger, Sabi Sand - the best parks and reserves to guarantee great sightings. 

 

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