Thanks for checking out my photostream and profile!


Photography is an artform I love with a passion since I got fully aware of it in January 2011.


Since I was young, I was always interested in photography but only to the point of *click*.

In 2000 I bought my first serious digital camera, an Olympus C2000Z.


In 2008 I got my hands on a Nikon DSLR (D40) for the first time. In 2010 I got serious with my Nikon D90. That summer I finally mastered the exposure triangle.

In January 2011 I realized I really wanted to become as good as I can get, especially in night photography. After a depressing year (2011), losing my younger brother in a tragic accident, photography became part of my therapy and I got myself the FX Nikon D700 - probably the best camera for the money ever.


These days I'm in the fortunate position to sell my images to websites and magazines, and many people who want my work on their living room and office walls.


Flickr and my Flickr contacts, as well as many books, magazines and websites inspired me and keep inspiring me to get better and push harder. Many thanks to you all!


In May 2015 I upgraded to the D810. I use mainly Nikon prime lenses for my work: 20mm (f/2.8) , 50mm (f/1.4), 85mm (f/1.8) and 105mm (f/2.8) and my favourite ultra wide angle (although flawed): the Sigma 12-24mm. I also carry the Nikon 70-300 VR, which is a great lens if you can't afford or don't want to carry around a 70-200 f/2.8


I love filters, I use Cokin's Z-pro gear, the Z164 polarizer, ND grads and B+W ND110s for long exposures.. I lug along a quite huge and heavy Benro A4580T tripod for maximum height and stability.


I use Photoshop CC and OnOne Photosuite for post-processing. Sometimes I use Photomatix Pro for HDR stuff, mostly before my FX camera's.


Enjoy my stuff! Happy shooting!


Thank you

I have a lot of respect for the pioneers of photography and the manufacturers of camera gear with their technical expertise. But all true credits and my love and appreciation go to the creator of light, eyes and creativity.


Keep thinking, stay awake and watch those skies! :)
