“If you want to shoot more interesting photographs, become a more interesting person“ Jay Maisel
Did you ever read a long Bio text from a photographer?
I do it rarely. So what should I write what you can´t find on any other page of a photographer? The “Bio“ and “About“ texts sounds all very similar but I do not mean that in a negative sense. Dedication and Passion, that´s all there. This is the precondition. Nature and travel photographers, they all share the same thoughts and passion about their craft and art. We go out and capture unique moments of our amazing world. Try to find a story and snap it in one frame.
It is always the same and read thousands of times. I figured out what´s really important to know, no matter if you are a new client, photographer or you are simply interested in my work.
Ok, here the facts you should know about me:
Startet as a true nature photographer, over the years, traveling to some of the most remote and wonderful places in our world let me be more of a travel photographer. So I would call me a Travel photographer with main focus on nature, landscape and adventure.
It is no secret that I´m addicted to the north, no matter if it is the high north of Europe like Norway or Finland, or the true wilderness areas in Kanada or Alaska.
Nevertheless, I always make some trips to the south like Korsika or Italy. Especially Italy became one of my favorite destinations. I love the very idyllic and nice fishing villages at the Ligurian sea. But despite all the beautiful destinations around the world I prefer the quiet and remote places. The Yukon Territory with one of my favorite town in the world, Dawson City. The small town Posio in Finland, a great place in winter. These are my regions where you will find me the most.
“Gear is good, vision is better“ David DuChemin
I can agree this statement 100%. My gear are my tools in order to realize my creative vision. Not more. Ok, I love gear, I love to handle with it but I constantly try to keep it at a minimum which is crucial for a travel photographer on flight. It´s important to have a good quality to produce good quality, especially when you work for agencies. Good images don´t need necessarily expensive gear. What you want and what you need are two different things.
