About my work

Photography is a great way to raise awareness of wildlife, to show it in its natural environment, and to awaken compassion and interest in it. Photography can convey to the viewer the valuable life of every single species.
The outstanding feature is that a picture can be "read", all over the world, by every human being.My main focus is the presentation in the context of their environment, their individual character and their specific charisma. Unfortunately, most people judge wildlife by "useful" and "beautiful" animals and not by the incredible achievements the animals make in their respective "niches". We need an attitude of unprejudiced respect that allows us humans to behave more morally in our dealings with animals.
The basis of my work is the deep respect for our nature and our environment.
