"I remember, that, when I saw these trees, I immediately knew how the picture should look like after processing. Everything was more or less ready in my mind."

"I love this bridge. Its not far from where I live. When I was a child our family used to make excursions to this place. I was always fascinated. I was there at the right moment, just before the sun vanished behind the hills."

1: How long have you been involved in photography?

When I joined flickr almost 3 years ago it all started to become more and more serious. I suddenly had a task: I wanted to post one picture a day - and if possible - always something different: subject, colour, technique....

2: Equipment you use?

I have a Canon EOS 400 D and a Canon Ixus 70. Nothing else.

3: Mac or PC?

PC

4: What inspires you?

A lot of what I see on flickr inspires me. Of course many of my contacts are a constant inspiration and also a motivation to try something new.

5: Preferred subject matter?

Landscapes, nature in general. But I can be almost everything. I have to find it interesting.

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

The moon & landscapes at night. I also like to make portraits, but its hard to find suitable models.

7: When in doubt about your art, who do you confide in?

I avoid having doubts about my art ;-)...luckily until now I really didn't encounter any serious doubts, but there are some good friends I could confide in.

8. Qualifications/training in anything?

Everything is self-taught. Some tricks and techniques I picked up in books and on the internet. It took me ages to figure certain things out in Photoshop.

9. Plans for the future?

I think some day I want to make an exhibition. The sooner, the better.

10: In one word, describe your photography
