I was born in july 1976 in Illertissen, Bavaria. I have been interested in photography ever since my first day of flying as a pilot. Being a commercial pilot for a german airline I get the opportunity for making extraordinary pictures from a bird's-eye view. Besides my interest in aerial photography my main focus is landscape photography.
