Hello,
I would like to explain a little why I take part in nature photography, and what kind of equipment I use.

Everything began with my first journeys. For journeys to Canada and Iceland I have bought my first camera equipment (Canon T70 + zooms). Those photos were at that time simple vacation memories without higher requirement.
Then, however, I more and more enjoyed to take photograps, and the praise as well as the demand for photo prints by fellow travelers were a further motivation to develop this hobby.
Now, I nearly always photograph a lot, for example at the Lahne-Valley and in the closer environment.

I'm a fitter by profession and photographing in the calm and fresh air of the nature is a good compensation to the hectic and noise at work.

I photograph at present with digital Canon SLR cameras and EF lenses from 16 to 600mm,
and use tripods, heads and quickrelease plates of Gitzo, Cartoni, Linhof, Novoflex, Kirk and RRS.

Transport takes place with different backpacks from Lowepro and Ortlieb/Koenig, a Zargesbox and a Pelicase - depending upon environmental influences, transportation facilities and quantity of the transported equipment.
In addition also flashlight, reflector, filter etc.

In the "digital darkroom" I work with Windows 10, Canon DPP, Photoshop CS6, PTGui and different plugins. I store the digital data on several, also external hard disks (data security).
I use an Epson R1800 A3-printer. TFT-screen and printer are color-calibrated.
I photograph in camera-raw and store my pictures as unsharpened and untrimmed TIFF file and as finished work on JPEG file.

Have fun with my picture galleries!
