To be honest I don’t look upon myself as a photographer but in fact more like as a moment catcher.
A hunter to trap those individual moments in life which can be sometimes rare to see and to feel. This means that it is probably time itself with what I am dealing from day to day. The trophy is all those moments and emotions which are prisoned inside that time fragment – thats what I hunt for.
It can be a glimpse of a bird or a shadow of a smile, a strange formation or just a beautiful color or tone. And it is not the machine which hunts down the theme but my senses, a big part of it is intuitive and instinct, and the other is aware, conscious. The moment when the picture is caught is just a first step in the process, then comes the postworks if necessary – to add yourself more deeply if needed to that photo of yours.
To create something extra that technology cannot add to that specific shot. To think it over and to feel the mood again when I look back to that special event later beside my computer. Everyone sees things more or less commonly, but to understand and feel it’s suggestions and mood, the impressions are really allways individual.
Basically photography does not differ from any other artistic ways of self expression. You are what you see and how you understand and feel it – then how you express it to the outside world. The better you can add yourself to the picture, the clearer will that shot tell your story, represent your life and way of living in this world.
And imho – this is the essence of photography as art and self expression for my self… In what I believe. [Official Website]
