This picture i took of the famous war memorial in Berlin, leaving the site and just than i discovered that lonely tree...which was the moment for a last quick shot....Yessssss.. :)

1: How long have you been involved in photography?
When joining a photoclub in the year 2001 i discovered that photography is not only registrating the world but also trying to put something in a photo that does show more of ones own, personal way of viewing it. That moment was an eyeopener to me. And before that i always made slides or was filming.

2: Equipment you use?
.I use a Nikon D2x, and several zoomlenses. Sometimes i use a digital Leica pocketcamera.

3: Mac or PC?
PC

4: What inspires you?
Good photographic light is very inspiring to me and new surroundings on vacations.

5: Preferred subject matter?
I prefer to shoot at street...but have not a specific preferance...if the light is good i like all subjects.

6: Name one thing you haven't caught with the camera that
you REALLY want to capture.

I like to take good photographs of one subject making a nice series of at least 12 but better 20 pictures...that will be a challenge for the future.

7: When in doubt about your art, who do you confide in?
I have a very good friend, sparringpartner and great photographer on the web. Before posting we always confide in each others work.

8: Qualifications/training in anything? ie: Photoshop
Learnt photoshop and printing by just watching videotutorials, such an easy way to learn...for me.

9: Plans for the future?
Making a nice portfolio and having an opportunity to exhibit my prints....not only at friends or work.

10: In one word, describe your photography.
In one word describing my photography is impossible...but i strive for storytelling, layered pictures that have a nice composition at the same time...
