Welcome to my site, and thank you for having a look at my images.
My journey began many years ago ..... For as long as I can remember I have been drawn to the environment and spirit of the natural world. I believe that my profound love of nature was instilled by my parents who fostered in me a constant sense of curiosity and wonder about the world around me. As a child growing up in southern Germany my parents took me for frequent walks in the magical world of Alpine meadows and forests which lay at our doorstep. My first camera was a Minolta SRT film camera, a gift from my parents, and it transformed the way I interacted with the world around me. I had a new-found way to observe, and to capture those observations, including wildflowers, creatures big and small, streams, ponds, forests. I recall being six years old and spending hours sitting with my camera in a hunters tree blind waiting quietly with great anticipation for deer to emerge into the meadows at dusk, only to capture a few underexposed blurry frames. But the magic of the experience was real and has stayed with me to this day.
I now call British Columbia my home and decades later I am still on that quest to experience, understand and “see” the natural world, not only with my eyes but also with my soul. Being in nature and making photographs is a meditative experience during which I become immersed in the power of the present moment and which creates in me a deep sense of connection to the environment.
I believe that one of the most important qualities of a photograph is to evoke an emotional response. Although two-dimensional images created by a camera will never serve to capture what we can experience with all of our senses, my goal is to illustrate and share with you some of the moments of awe-inspiring beauty, peacefulness, stillness, connection, and wonder which I have had the fortune to be part of. I am continually striving to improve my craft and creative vision to hopefully bring you photographs that resonate with your soul as well as mine.
Thank you for visiting my website and having an interest in my art .... the journey continues
