Book publication

One day, after an entry in the forum of the nude photography gallery, I received an invitation to enter a competition for a volume of art pictures, for which you were allowed to send in up to 10 shots. I decided to choose 8 photographs to send, and after being shortlisted, I was chosen to be included in the book.

This gave me the chance for the first time to present my work to a wider public, which was fantastic for me, of course. Until then, only a very small circle of friends and acquaintance had been aware of my creative photographic work, and of course I hope that this might also open up a doorway to new opportunities. I will now be keeping an eye out for more models so that I can gather material for future exhibitions and competitions. On 23 April 2005, there was a meeting in Berlin of all the photographers who had been involved in the illustrated book, and a presentation followed by a book signing was organised in a bookshop.

The whole project was very well organised and included an exciting evening when all the photographers and models were able to exchange ideas. It was followed on Sunday, 24 April 2005 by a "photo safari" to the nearby Rüdersdorf Industrial Park.

If you are interested in the book of photographs, take a look in your local bookshop, or send me a mail and I'll let you have more information about buying the book.





Photo equipment


I first grappled with photography when I was just 14 years old. My father let me loose on humanity with a Kodak camera with a leather case and a light meter that was also encased in leather. It's amazing when you think that nowadays cameras go off automatically when you laugh. I learnt all about camera settings and the interplay between the aperture, shutter speeds and film sensitivity. After a further four years, I was then given a Rollei 35 miniature viewfinder camera, which produced brilliant results for me back then.


After this, I bought my first single-lens reflex camera, an EXAKTA HS-3. It had a bayonet for Pentax lenses and took really good photographs, as far as I could judge.


I then made the switch to CANON when the EOS series came out, and specifically to the 650 EOS with autofocus. Over the years, I have made one or two purchases, but have stayed loyal to the CANON brand ever since.

I often hear about differences of opinion between owners of CANON and NIKON cameras, which I myself consider to be fairly stupid. The camera is a tool, a good photograph is a matter of opinion, interpretation or whatever ..., but in any case, it is the well-trained eye that captures the viewer, and the technical quality of the two brands is pretty much the same!
