Something about me


Since more than 30 years I’m working as a freelance Photographer and Photo Journalist shooting a variety of subjects, including news, sport, commercial and industrial, music, fashion, portraits and of course weddings and family.

Much of my work in the past has been done in Europe, especially Germany. 2003, after years of travelling, I have found my new home in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada. With the great outdoors right on my backyard, I really enjoy nature and wildlife.

However, working with people is my first love, and therefore focus of my photography. My priority is to reflect the personalities of my clients and guests in an unobtrusive, relaxed and informal style. Shootings are a special occasion.

The photographs taken and the images captured represent this very special moment and tell a story.
Images are taken in a moment, but they preserve this moment for a lifetime, providing you with truly lasting images.

My award winning photography work can be found in Europe, the United States of America and of course Canada, in both public and private collections. Numerous of my photographs are published on commercial web sites, in magazines and brochures like the New York Times, National Geography online, Railway Magazines, fashion and concert advertisements, Tourist Guide Las Vegas, and more  local and international newspapers and magazines.

Much of my event-related photography work in Squamish was done together with Cindy Cardiff at Double-Shutter Images.

Web Design and Software Development

A second branch of my regular work is mainly computer based. Web Design and Software Development with focus on CRM (Customer Relationship Management) solutions is a broad field which I cover, beginning with the business case analysis, continuing through the blue print phase, solution design, development and realization, roll out and integration, and finally client training, maintenance and service.
