Watching wildlife in its natural habitat has been fascinating to me since my childhood. Taking pictures of wild animals has become a passion.


Working as a flight crew for an international airline, I have the possibility to get to many famous and interesting spots around the world quite easily. I take advantage of this as much as I can. Good knowledge of nature and wildlife as well as  good organization is mandatory for each trip. But in the end it is mostly luck and a lot of patience...when i look at the pictures of the last years, it looks like i had both...


With my pictures and this website I want to show the uniqueness of wildlife and share my passion with my family, my friends and with all who are interested in wildlife. Many species of wildlife i saw in the past years are endangered and are protected. If we want our children and grandchildren have the same encounters with a wild world like we still have it now, we need to do a lot. Lions, Elephants, Rhinos, Tigers, etc...may be on the brink of extinction if we don't act fast. Taking pictures of these wild animals and sharing  them with people who are interested in their protection is part of my effort to save them.


Questions and comments are highly appreciated and will be answered.
