Portfolio An Overview
My portfolio is splitted into different galleries. Each gallery provide a number of pictures belonging together as explained in the abstract.
I do love butterflies - they are just beautiful, don't you think? The first five images of this series were taken in Victoria Butterfly Gardens (1461 Benvenuto Avenue, Brentwood Bay, BC, Canada) in August 2003. The rest of the images were shot in June 2009 in the "Schmetterlingshaus" (house of butterflies) on the Mainau Island, Lake constance, Germany.
CSI Miami is a famous TV show. Besides the great plot I will always remember this special optical touch. All images seemed to be softened and soaked in turquois, yellow and orange. This series of pics are all sunsets shot by me on different locations with exactly the same touch of colors - so I call this gallery "CSI Miami".
Traveling and hiking in the deserted nature of Canada and the US has always a horrorfying touch. Around each corner you can meet grizzlies or the black bears. I have seen some of them in nature, luckily with the necessary distance between them and me. The pictures of this series were taken in the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (AWCC) located on the Seward Highway in Portage, Alaska in August 2006.
The Wild West is a series of pictures I took in August 2003 on a trip through British Columbia and Alberta in Canada and Montana, Idaho and State of Washington in the USA. It was a special summer with huge forest fires. So, every time you think the pic was shot on a misty day it was smoke from the forest fires nearby.
