I live in Berlin and for the last 15 years have traveled & explored Africa's National Parks and Reserves during my holidays.
South & Eastern Africa has drawn me into its spell since my very first safari. My friends and family often ask me: "What is it that attracts you to go on safari again and again?" It is not easy to put into words; I like to quote Karen Blixen, which describes it for me so fittingly: "There is something about safari life that makes you forget all your sorrows and feel as if you had drunk half a bottle of Champagne - bubbling over with heartfelt gratitude for being alive..."
I have two passions: one is the observation of animals in the wild, especially the big cats and elephants, on the other is my enthusiasm for photography.
At first I was traveling with an analog camera, and now I have two digital SLRs and big lenses with me.
With my travel reports and photography I would like to inspire people to the wonders of the wilderness of Africa. Working with my photos helps me bridge the time and my longing for Africa until the next safari. The Masai Mara, Samburu Reserve in Kenya, and the Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area in Tanzania are my favorite places for wildlife photography and observation.
