I have been intensely involved in photography for about 40 years now. first as a young hobby photographer, then as a student of the lette verein in berlin. this was followed by a time as a freelancer for the news paper husumer nachrichten and as the editor responsible for the wochen-schau in husum and schleswig, a weekly newspaper. finally i continued my training with a traineeship at the german press agency dpa in frankfurt, moved to bonn after a year and moved to berlin with the government, now a dpa photographer. a couple of years ago I changed the seat and became a photo editor - still for the dpa. during all the time I took pictures for myself too. most of the photographs you see on this website were created on this private basis.
