During a world trip in 2011 I started a project about teachers and visited teachers in several countries in a privat atmosphere. We had talks about teaching and the power of education. I also took portraits of these impressive personalities.
Mount Everest Trekk
In Oktober 2011 I walked the Mount Everest Trekk and took pictures of one of the most impressives landscapes I ever saw. I shoot digital, but I always liked the touch of analog film. I decided to give the digital pictures the look of my favorite BW-Film (Kodak Trix400) and at least I printed this pictures on Hahnemühle William Turner Fine Art Paper.
I learned old school in a darkroom, but know I like the possibilitys of the digital photographie. But still I knew a good eye is more than the knwoledge about photoshop tools.
I am working mostly with a Nikon FX System and Carl Zeiss lenses.
