I begun photographing when I was about 12 years old when my father gave me his old camera for medium format rollfilm. A view years later he gave me his old Praktica IV 35 mm SLR with two lenses. From now on I made more than souvenir-photos.

About photography

I am mainly active in "artistic" photography (nature and experimental photography) and I have a present collection of more than 12,000 slides 35 mm, more than 800 slides medium format and about 60,000 digital photos. I use photography commercially by selling existing photos for publications. I'm also working for Adobe Stock (form. Fotolia) (, Panthermedia (, Imagebroker ( and Waldhaeusl (

Since 2003 I'm photographing exclusively digital. There are clearly more advantages than disadvantages. And the technical evolution from the Olympus C-1000L (1998) to the now used EOS R was really impressive. Photography now has a new dimension.

At the moment I am scanning my slides with a film-scanner to store them digitally (see computer-page). For 12,000 slides and an average of 10 - 20 slides per day I think I will be busy for some time.

I also made a bad experience with mold: Although the slides were not mounted behind glass, a few hundred slides were destroyed by the mold and about 4,000 are affected. There is no hope to save them! If someone made the same experience and has tips or needs some, so contact me.
