An autumn stroll in Ireland’s capital

“Cozy like a pub, hospitable like a village,” I could read before my departure on some websites as I was looking for some travel inspiration. I wasn’t quite able to imagine what that meant. Shortly after my arrival it became quite obvious to me, though. Dublin is a wonderful city which, despite its size, has ...

Where this journey took me…

Hey guys, In one of my last articles, in which I told you my thoughts about the SIGMA 85mm F.14 DG HSM Art, you could also see some sample images which apparently hadn’t been taken in our area. So far, however, I haven’t told you where that journey took me. I wanted to wait until ...

A paradise for photographers – ICELAND

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.

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. ...

The Kilauea (translation “the spewing ...

National Geography Travel Photographer of the Year 2018

Ever since I’m able to read, I’ve been a fan of the National Geographic Magazine, and ever since I’m into photography, I’ve been particularly fascinated of course by the incredible photographs and the unbelievably talented photographers whose pictures get published in the magazine. One of my greatest dreams – and forgive me for mentioning it ...

La Gacilly – Europe’s biggest photo festival in Baden, Austria

“Europe’s biggest photo festival”. With this slogan the La Gacilly Photo Festival, which takes place in Baden in Lower Austria from 8 June 2018 to 30 September 2018, of course attracted my attention right away. The biggest photo festival – and so far I’ve never really heard anything about it? I’ve got to change this! ...

Surfing in the polar sea: Olivier Morin

Surfing is more than just a sport. Today surfing is about a dream we all have at some point. The freedom to live the day to its fullest, to lie on the beach in a bikini and spend some time on the waves, to only live in the here and now and to sit on ...
