About me

I got my first camera when I was 10 years old. Well the pictures sucked 😉 but I was improving of course and the cameras were getting bigger and bigger. Now if I take all my equipment I get problems with the Hand luggage weight.


What I like most is taking pictures of landscapes, especially without people.


The first pictures were taken with an analog compact camera. I switched to an analog Canon EOS 300 SLR the year 2003 just before the Alaska trip. 2 years later I bought my first digital camera – a compact Fuji 6MegaPixels camera. 2006 I switched to a digital SLR – a Canon EOS 350D with the brand new Tamron 17-50 SP. Three years later – 2009 – I switch the SLR to an EOS 40D – still with the same lens which I replaced 2011 by an Canon 15-85IS. Late 2011 I changed my camera again to an EOS 7D. 2012 I went Full Format with a Canon EOS 5Dmk2 and I started buying a lot of lenses. Currently the setup is:
– Canon 5Dmk4 and 5Dmk2
– Canon EF 16-35 IS 4.0L, EF 25-105 4.0IS L, 70-200 2.8IS L, 100 2.8L, 500 4.0IS L
– Canon 2xIII Teleconverter
– Sigma 35 1.4


Besides photography I like flying. This map is an overview of the airports and flight routes I have travelled. From one of the highest (La Paz, Boliva, >4000m) to the most dangerous (Lukla, Nepal) to one of the biggest (Atlanta, USA). I came around a lot and I enjoy flying.
