The magical reality of nature and the silent landscape of his youth are the greatest inspirations to his photography.Thereby, just like a fine art collector, he searches for colour and composition.Commissioned by various magazines, tourist information offices and other customers he regularly produces travel reports on landscapes, animals and traditional tribes. To this end he travels extensively abroad. a.o. Japan, Tahiti, Patagonia, Zimbabwe, Oman, The Middle East, Far East. Etc.
