Born in 1986 I soon found the interest in nature. It didn’t take a long time and I also wanted to photograph the seen things to show the others the fascinating moments I saw. So in 2003 I bought a Nikon Coolpix 4500. It was one of the early digital compact cameras. The camera was really good: You could take photos of the small things you found and it was also possible to photograph through my Swarovski spotting scope. After photographing with it for some years I took part in the Nikon Digiscoping competition. My Coolpix broke down in winter 2006 – but thanks to the Nikon Digiscoping competition I had a little bit later enough money to buy my first digital SLR – a Canon 30D. This camera is really amazing and it has a big potential!! In autumn 2006 I started my civil service at the ‘Verein Jordsand’ in the wadden sea – and my fascination for the biggest national park between the North Cape and Sicily grew more and more. I worked at many different places there and after my civil service, I tried to visit this area as often as possible! Therefore many of my photos were taken in Nordfriesland and are published there.
