I grew up in Eastern Germany - my father is a professional photographer -and I passed a good part of my childhood helping out in the laboratory developing films and staying in the dark room, a work I loved a lot. I received my first camera when I was a little child (it was a russian Lomo...) and growing up I continued having my camera always with me. Travelling, after the breaking of the Berlin Wall, soon became very important in my life and I saw the places, people and landscape always through my camera. Photography is my second profession - along with my main job as travel agent and tour operator. I'm a contributing photographer for one of the most important picture agencies in London, many of my pics have been used for magazines like National Geographic, books and calenders. Furthermore I offer photographic trips in Italy and Africa.
