Born in Schongau/Bavaria/Germany and raised in a rural village, I have lived in Munich/Bavaria, Münster/Westfalia and Wiltshire/England. I have visited Scotland many times, and captured castles, distilleries, landscapes, wildlife, cities, lochs, food and weddings there. I love taking pics of everything beautiful that meets my eye.

My father Peter was a keen macro photographer and introduced me to the beauty of nature from a very young age He gave me my first SLR when I was 14. 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. I have also developed my own black & white photographs. I specialize in nature, wildlife, macro, food, wedding & corporate photography.

Here are a few of my collections:

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.

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

Close your eyes in a quiet place and breathe deeply. Focus on your excess weight and silently ask it: “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 excess weight will tell you that it’s trying to protect you from something. / Ask the excess weight: “What are you trying to protect me from?” / Say to 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…
