A well-trained eye for over 30 years.


I was about 11 years old when I got a used Olympus OM1, and 3 black and white films from my aunty in the mid-80s, I was ultimately enthusiastic about photography itself.
Years later, during my design and communication studies, I found the right professional approach to photography in the obligatory photography classes. 
The Olympus eventually became a Canon EOS 50E. Since then, I have been loyal to Canon for over 20 years.
Since 2012, my loving wife's wedding present was a Leica X2, which showed me that there is another league as well in the (photography)-cosmos.
For more than 2 years another toy was added to my toolbox - a Mavic Pro 2 from DJI. Such a fun and great gimmick.

Photography was, is, and will always be the main focus of my leisure time activities just capturing the fleeting moment. This also helps me in my work in the experience economy and marketing in general.

EQUIPMENT.

 

Take a look into my tool-box.


But please don't think that I always carry all this stuff with me. Usually, I limit myself to one camera and - depending on the location - the DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone. The big toys (Canon EOS R6 + lenses) I only take along on explicit journeys or jobs.

Key learning: Good strong lenses are more important than a body. Period.

  • Canon EOS R6
  • DJI Mavic Pro2 + DJI Smart Controller
  • DJI Osmo Pocket 60p, 4K
  • Leica X2

  • Tineer water-resistant DJI Smart Controller Case


Plus a few more photographic toys, tools, and gadgets to have fun with, like my DIY kit of a pinhole camera (wide-angle 6 x 6 – you can see the results at the bw-section) for analog medium format development, several lightboxes, and flashlights, or further filters and converters.
