My interest in photography started at a young age, when my aunt gave me a Kodak Instamatic on my first visit to ze Vaterland (my parents were German). In the 80s, I bought a Nikon SLR and have remained loyal to the brand ever since.

My main photographic interest is all things aviation, but I enjoy all kinds of photography, and often carry a camera with me wherever I go.
