Welcome to my collection.
I’ve had over 3 million views & 971 sales on my portfolio to date.
Thanks a million to all who commented on and bought my work since 2008.
My equipment includes a Panasonic Lumix digital camera and an old non-digital SLR. For my paintings I use acrylic and watercolour and picasa for post production. My strengths include creativity, composition and photography. I love capturing closeups in nature, landscapes, architecture, people and abstracts. I have travelled to England, Scotland, Italy, Austria and other European countries to capture my images. My future destinations include Canada, USA, Ireland and the Greek Islands. So keep your eyes peeled for more of my work!
Most of my images are available on 48 different products and can also be found here:
Born 1966 in Schongau and raised in a rural Bavarian village in Southern Germany, with previous homes in Munich/Bavaria, Münster/Westfalia and Wiltshire/England. Since 1988 I visited Scotland many times, and captured various sights and weddings there. I love travelling and taking pics of everything beautiful that meets my eye.
My father was a keen macro photographer and introduced me to the beauty of nature from a very young age. In my teenage years I aspired to be a musician & singer/songwriter and have been on stage in various places with guitar/piano & vocals in England and Bavaria. My dad gave me my first SLR when I was 14. I have developed my own black & white photographs in the 80s. Now I have several digital cameras and never leave the house without at least one. I also do wedding & corporate photography for websites, flyers, business cards etc. Details are available on request.
Here are a few of my collections:
All calendars can be customized to your choice and start at any chosen month. You can also select 12 images & your preferred cover from my portfolio and I will make up a calendar especially for you. They are a collection of 13 quality fine art prints that can be individually framed at the end of the year making them a perfect gift for yourself of loved ones.
Winners imagine their dreams first. They want it with all their heart and expect it to come true. I believe there is no other way to live! The world is a safe and friendly place. I am at peace with life. I am safe at all times.

A CELTIC BLESSING
May the light of your soul guide you. May the light of your soul bless the work that you do with the secret love and warmth of your heart. May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul. May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light and renewal to those who work with you and to those who see and receive your work. May your work never weary you. May it release within you wellsprings of refreshment, inspiration and excitement. May you be present in what you do. May you never become lost in bland absences. May the day never burden. May dawn find you awake and alert, approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities and promises. May evening find you gracious and fulfilled. May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected. May your soul calm, console and renew you.
