witcher 3, game, ingame, photography, screenshot, skellige, 2016In the last months I worked on a new project - in-game photography. Since I like exploring and enjoying virtual adventures like Skyrim, Witcher, Fallout, Doom etc. and I've already spent quite some time with those adventures and I already have some knowledge about creating images in general, I recently thought why not combining both interests. This new gallery of in-game photographs is the result of this endeavor. All the images below are created in the world of Witcher III, most of them in Skellige. The islands of Skellige remind me the strongest of the real northern realms like ... Continue reading →

Since I was born and raised in East Germany, or the GDR (German Democratic Republic), which was reunited with West Germany in 1989 and I formerly was - for instance - a so called "Jungpionier" during primary school and surrounded by Soviet influences, I am particular interested in the past of the UDSSR and their influence of our lifes in the GDR between the World War II and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and beyond.

abstract, forest, winter, snow, harz, cold, frozen, tree, fir, germany, 2013 This winter I completed a little project I had in mind for a few years now. To create abstract forest photo renditions of all four seasons which look a little bit like paintings.

To capture photos like this in camera you have to move the camera manually during a long exposure. It will take several attempts to familiarize with this technique and get the results yo ...

harz, bode, river, forest, cascade, summer, wallpaper, germany, 2010This is my favorite forest scene in Harz National Park, Germany. I created this image on a hiking day with my dad in 2010. Here you see the lower Bodefalls near Braunlage on a late summer day. By the way, the famous german writers and poets Heinrich Heine and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once enjoyed and appreciated this hike and the scenes along the way for themselves.   Get the Full HD Wallpaper by clicking this link: Full HD Version 1920 x 1080 | Smaller Version 1280 x 853 Continue reading →
