About Photographer

Nature photography is a way for me to express myself creatively and artistically. I feel a lasting admiration for all that grows and lives. Nature is versatile, beautiful, fragile, and the source of all life. And for me a source of inspiration. Whether a picture is taken in our own garden, Iceland, Yellowstone or somewhere in Africa .... the aim is to show nature at its best. In my work I try to show my fascination for nature and its vulnerability. Just like a painter uses the paintbrush, my tool is the camera. When people are touched by my photos, I feel great appreciation.
