Now it is official: My first photo book HABITAT will be published in October this year. To fund the production costs of the book, I started a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. This campaign is an opportunity to pre-order a signed and numbered copy from a limited edition of 300 books and to help me, turning the idea of this project into a real book. You can also buy limited posters editions, fine art prints and some other cool stuff at the campaign. Have a look! 😉
HABITAT CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN ON KICKSTARTER
This is a all-or-nothing funding: If this project doesn’t reach its funding goal, the book won’t become real and everyone, who supported in the campaign will get their money back. This is why I need your help and your support. Please support this project by sharing the crowdfunding campaign on social networks and anyone that might be interested in. Your help is greatly appreciated!
I am very pleased to announce my first photo book »HABITAT« which will be published around autumn 2018 through one of the best known publishing houses in Germany. The Book is about my long term project of aerial views that show human intervention in natural spaces – from agricultural areas to road crossings, from open pit mining to waterways.
The photographs are arranged according to superior questions: Where do we mine raw materials, how does agriculture affect nature, how do roads and railways change our habitat? These questions are answered in five chapters with 90 photographs as well as some representative facts and infographics which can be added by overlapping a image.
For updates about the book, please send your Name to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will get a notification about availabilities.
Late last year I did win the DJI Drone Photography Award by The British Journal of Photography and DJI. Last week I’ve been to the exhibition opening of the Award in London. Here is a short snippet of the opening night.
I am doing my first photo Exhibition about my Aerial Photography Project »HABITAT« in Munich. Large Format prints will be displayed on the 7th of December at 7.30pm at Mates Munich. Adress: MATES, Georgenstraße 66, 80799 Munich
Last week I went to a frozen lake to take some aerial shots from the shore line. I was really surprised when I saw the structure of the ice surface from above. I did a visual study of the ice patterns. It looks like some detail shots and they are in a way but of a bigger scale then you might guess. All shots where taken from around 100 meter above the surface. The distance from left the right is about 80 meter.
Winter is unveiling some interesting structures in cultivated landscapes. This is my first aerial photo series, showing reforestation in it’s earlier stadium at a tree nursery farm.
Worked on a new photo series »misty mountains« shot during a foggy week in the bavarian alps.
This year I went on a trip to the balearen islands in the mediterranen sea. It was my first time there and I was really surprised about the beauty of landscape they offer. Now as the days are getting shorter I find time to process to output to a new photo series.
For half a year I’ve been planing and researching for some new kind of photography. Finally I found a solution, that suits my standards in photography. Now I’m exploring a new perspective on landscape photography with a very graphical approach.
A few days ago I went again hiking in the swiss »Alpstein Gebirge«. I started at 4pm and reached the summit of »Hoher Kasten« just before sunset. Looking down from about 1.800 meter into the valley and across the shieling was a very calm experience.
Today I took my bike on a ride around the north shore of lake Bodensee, Germany and the camera on the back. The greens are very vivid right now and the leaves are light so that a lot of light is going through. Just perfect for capturing some german forest scenery.
This week we had quite warm weather for this time of year so I took out my bike and went along the west shore of Bodensee.
On Tuesday I went to the Alpstein region in Switzerland. I knew that there had been the first snow for the winter so I wanted to make my way up to a summit the take photos of the mountain ridge during sunset.
As I got there I recognized that the snow was much more than I expected. The trail up to the summit was completely covered with 40-50cm snow and they took down all the signage. Luckily enough somebody walked my way a day before. Otherwise you would have been just lost. It was quit a hustle to make the 1000 meters altitude and I didn’t make it to the summit I wanted to because the snow was to high and therefore to dangerous. But I went to another hut called „Äscher“ which was located beneath a 120 meter high cliff. The view to the Seealpsee down in the valley was stunning and paid all the effort off.
In August I spent some days in the southern part of Norway. I was mainly traveling along the coast from Bergen to Trondheim and did some detours into the fjords. Weatherwise we got perfect conditions for hiking and camping so we could do some spectacular dusks and dawns in the fjords. I just uploaded a new project „Norway“ with some impressions of the journey.
I just returned from a photo trip to the US. Did a couple of thousand miles exploring some of the finest national parks I’ve seen so far.
There are some stunning projects to come! This one is from Arizona.
Another on from Madeira Islands. Mt. Ribeiro Frio National looking westwards. Amazing cloud-pooling in the vallies during dusk!
I just added a new project to my studio portfolio. It’s all about the aesthetic of sliced vegetables and fruits. I was fascinated by the colour, structure and shape, why I decided to take a series of it. You’ll find this project in the studio section.
