This is the personal, mostly photographic website of
Engineer by trade.
Photographer by passion.
After having received a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the Aachen University of Technology, Chair of Communication Networks, professional life is now taking place in the telecom industry, working as a manager for Deutsche Telekom and living with family in Cologne, Germany.
Photography, taken somewhat seriously, started as a gradual process in the 90s with travel and landscape, which are still a major part of the portfolio. Most current projects focus on cityscapes, the urban landscape.
Finding the residues of human endeavours in both natural and artificial structures, not necessarily getting spectacular or even “nice” images is the main motivation for spending all these hours behind the camera.
In addition, chasing total solar eclipses and a recently developed, deeper interest in astrophotography take their toll, picture-wise. Especially since joining the IAS Observatory association.
Images have been showns at various exhibitions, as well as being used by advertising agencies and publishers world-wide.
Photographic activities in Cologne are inspired by the first Stadtbild Köln workshop group at the Adult Education Center, and the ex-flickr, then ipernity, now defunct Cologne Meeting Group.
