NEAT Projects 2 – A dream come true for all travel photographers

We know it all too well. You’re on vacation and have been looking forward to a certain monument or a certain view you’ve seen in so many calendar pictures or on Instagram, and then you’re standing right in front and can’t even see the sight because of all the crowds of people! This particular problem ...

Through the wind and the rain

While other people enjoy spending their summer vacation in deckchairs on warm and sunny beaches with a cool refreshing drink and a book in their hands, this year I decided to do the opposite. This year my plans took me to Iceland, a destination that’s been on my mind for a very long time. Instead ...

An EISA Award for SIGMA

By now probably all of you are familiar with the EISA Award. But just to help you remember: EISA is an association of 53 professional magazines from 25 European countries. The association is mainly known for its award that is given every year. The editors-in-chief of all EISA membership magazines get together to decide about ...

How far to go for the perfect shot?

By now we’ve often heard them. The stories of people who, as they try to create the perfect selfie, risk their lives, take incredible risks and often die tragically. Every time I hear such a story I really have doubts about the evolution of mankind. To die for a picture of yourself? This idea probably ...

An afternoon in the park

During the night the concrete fails to give off all the heat of the previous day, before it gets blasted by the sun on the next one. While walking there is a smell of freshly ironed clothes coming from bellow. It is one’s own clothes being ironed “on the go”. And with steam no less, ...

Taking a break to breathe Italian air

For the last two days I visited Milan where I enjoyed once again “la dolce vita” in an Italian way of life. Strolling through the city, enjoying the sightseeing and then turning into the little hidden side-lanes off the beaten path. There’s a lot more to discover in Milan than just luxury labels and a ...

Chris Burkard – King of landscape photography

One of my greatest idols in terms of photographic achievements is Chris Burkard. This guy actually lives my dream. However, I’m sure that the life and career of this US-American photographer don’t only get close to my ideals of life. At the age of only 32 years the Californian became popular on an international level. ...

Visiting a puppet theater

As you may have noticed in the past few weeks I’m more and more attracted to documentary photography. Following intriguing people and things and capturing big and little particularities interests me more and more. The ice-fisherman I could accompany one afternoon at temperatures far below zero degrees Celsius, the lovely ladies at the pastry store ...

What is a Camera Obscura?

Hey guys, Today I’d like to take you on a little journey back in time and tell you something about the camera obscura. A camera obscura simply is a dark room with a hole in the wall that is penetrated by light. It’s often used as a metaphor for human perception or the production of ...

I’m packing my camera bag … and taking it with me

The vacation you have booked and anticipated is finally close enough and you can already feel it in the air. Although most people aren’t traveling for the first time, the question arises again and again and before every trip: What should I pack in? How much is too much and what’s too little? One thing ...
