My way into photography originally began with the wish to capture not only the beautiful things that I saw in the world out there but also special moments in time and experiences. I still remember the moment in which I realized this, standing on a boat that was bobbing up and down on the water of the Atlantic Ocean while a little family of humpback whales was passing by. Living in the middle of a big city, my observations of wildlife are mostly limited to local birds, insects, the occasional rabbit and sometimes even turtles in the park’s pond and even though I’m never intentionally looking for the little wild ones, I’d always regret when I stumble over them on one of my walks and don’t have the right lens with me. Sometimes it can be tricky to capture them with the camera and almost feel like hunting, but other times I’m lucky and they hold still long enough as if they’d pose for me.
The images shown here are just a small selection of my work, you can find more in the gallery ‘Animalis’ on my Photoshelter site where you also can purchase downloads and licences for all of my images.
