If you live in a big city the local zoo is often the most suitable place to test out a new telephoto lens.

Caught up by winter (SIGMA 24-70 mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art)

Plus ten degrees, the sun that had just started to shine a bit stronger and some flowers had ventured out to the surface – this was an image which I was very happy about on my last stroll in the woods last weekend. I kept thinking that this was the end of winter and slowly ...

Thomas Peschak and the ocean

Do you know that feeling? You see a photo and it captures you right away so you just can’t turn away anymore? I don’t feel like that very often, but when I do that feeling is very strong. It happened to me a couple of months ago: In the National Geographic Online Magazine I saw ...

  I think we all have to be honest about one thing, no matter how weird we find the fact that pets nowadays can become millionaires, or make their owners such, we all have liked at least one of those cute pics of Loki, Tuna, Grumpy Cat & Co. I know this is totally normal. ...

Once upon a time … Fairytale images by Katarzyna and Marcin Owczarek

Fairytales have always counted among my favorite stories. No matter how grown up I became, fantasy and fairytale stuff has always kept fascinating me.

Speaking animals, enchanted princes, surprising turning points we ...

My “photographic dream” of Africa

Red soil, endless wilderness, breathtaking sunsets, amazing animals, freedom and adventures. All this and much more I can relate to my dream of Africa. As far as I remember I’ve always dreamed of exploring Africa. Of seeing the animals you usually watch in a zoo or – even more tragically – in a circus show ...
