Fine art landscape photographer from Germany’s far north

Landscape photography of the beauty and uniqueness of nature

The photo agency Lookphotos in Munich likes to call me „The Nostalgic Poet“. This description fits my photographic style well, because my imagery is shaped by the rather rough and barren landscape of the German North Sea region. Today, puristic, authentic fine art landscape photographs of the beauty and uniqueness of nature are created with great passion.

I take my fine art landscape photographs with the available light. I work with Nikon full frame and fast Nikon lenses. Preferably with wide angle, but also with super wide angle and telephoto. I shoot in 3: 2 RAW format and use Manfrotto tripods as well as Lee ND filters and Lee polarizing filters. Post-processing is kept pleasantly economical with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. I like to cut gallery images – inspired by the English landscape photographer Charlie Waite – to a square format, i.e. to an aspect ratio of 1: 1. With the courage to normalize, my pictures should create a conscious distance from the often colorful mainstream. As a landscape photographer, I would like to contribute with my pictures to sensitize people and their perception and thus to preserve nature. I spend as much time as possible in the most beautiful places in the North Sea and on other coasts, as well as in the mountains and in the wilderness of the national parks in Germany and elsewhere.
