  • Sharp and Simple Mobility
    Starting my Analogue Adventure, it completely changes my perception of what I believe. I thought my Fuji X-Camera gear is compact and small. I learn, there is another level of „full frame“ compactness, also with lenses. I thought my lenses were the best there could be. I learn about lens character and rendering performance beyond… Read More
  • An Analogue Adventure
    I started using digital photography around 2001. Coming from an intense analog photography period, using black and white film, developing it myself and using my own darkroom. For color work, Kodak Ektachrome Slide was my favorite choice. Until last year. I got infected. It started by reading a book: “The Revenge of Analog”. Telling the… Read More
  • A Photographers Holiday in Wales
    I was thrilled when my family and me planned to have our summer holiday in the Brecon Beacons and after that in Exmoor. We booked to cottages, quite remotely and as we say in German „In der Pampa“ which translates to „If you are in the Shire, living in Bagend, you still have to travel… Read More

In recent years, we have been confronted with advanced technology to present our work – tablets with high resolution displays as colourful, sharp and shiny as we could wish for.  I remember – years ago – when I bought my first digital… Read More
  • What Cameras are About
    I have used several cameras in the past decades. My first one was a Pentax Spotmatic, which I got passed on from my father, followed by a Yashika. I then bought the EOS 100 as first camera by my own money, got into digital with the EOS 30D, followed by the 50D and then the… Read More
  • Love Your Pictures
    Spend time with them, because they say a lot about who you are and why you made them in the first place. Learn from them, because they not only show what you like, but also show to you what you would like to improve. They are pictures, but also like mirrors to guide you a… Read More
