Welcome to my portfolio!
I started uploading to RB in 2008 and had 2.299.053 views & 591 sales to date.

Born 1966 in Schongau and raised in a rural Bavarian village in Southern Germany, I have lived in Munich/Bavaria, Münster/Westfalia and Wiltshire/England and spent a lot of time in Scotland, my spiritual home. I love travelling and capturing 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.

Casting Shadows


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.

Angel (Sarah McLaughlan)

Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
for a break that would make it okay! There’s always some reason – to feel not good enough and it’s hard at the end of the day! I need some distraction – oh beautiful release
memory seeps from my veins. Let me be empty and weightless and maybe I’ll find some peace tonight!

In the arms of an angel fly away from here – from this dark cold hotel room and the endlessness that you fear. You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
you’re in the arms of the angel may you find some comfort here!

So tired of the straight line and everywhere you turn there’s vultures and thieves at your back – and the storm keeps on twisting – you keep on building the lies that you make up for all that you lack – it don’t make no difference escaping one last time, it’s easier to believe in this sweet madness oh this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees in the arms of an angel fly away from here – from this dark cold hotel room and the endlessness that you fear – you are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie – you’re in the arms of the angel may you find some comfort here – you’re in the arms of the angel – may you find some comfort here…

Visualize your way to health & success

Getting healthy requires you to see yourself as healthy (or fit or slimmer or sleeping better or … fill-in-the-blank) before you even get there. It’s a form of emotional fitness and mental retraining. So, for example, if your goal is to lose weight for a wedding this summer, here’s what you’d do: / •Imagine yourself feeling fit and sexy, wearing that perfect-sized dress, before…

Excuses & Circumstances

We all have some ingrained excuses – many of them seem real to us. There is a difference between an EXCUSE and a description of your current CIRCUMSTANCE. We can confuse the two. Usually your current circumstances BECOME an excuse and it’s easy to hide behind it because no one can argue with your circumstance. But you are MORE than your circumstance and you can, through trial, effort …

Weight = Wait!!!

The following method works wonders in rapidly and healthfully releasing excess weight / Close your eyes in a quiet place and breathe deeply. Focus on your excess weight and hold the intention of having a conversation with it. Silently ask the excess weight: “Why are you with me? What purpose are you serving? What am I waiting for?” / Listen to the answer, which may surprise you. Most likely, the …

Building Confidence

Confidence is learnt, not inherited. / If you lack confidence, it probably means that you were criticised or undermined as a child. / If your message was ‘You are singing out of key’, remind yourself of the friends you have and stick a message on your mirror saying ‘My voice is wonderful and creates goosepimples’ or ‘I am made to be on a stage!’ / What you think about you will bring about. Confid…
