Back from Japan

Wow, long time no post again… Apologies for being so inactive (and lazy) in the meantime :/

Just in case you wondered where I’ve been lately: I’ve been to Japan for two weeks and of course I brought some new material from there. I’ve been to Tokyo, Nikkou and Fujiyoshida / Lake Kawaguchi. The main photographic subject for this trip was modern architecture, rather than nature / landscapes, so I spend a good amount of time in Tokyo, where I also met with Luca Cesari. I guess my main subject in photography slightly changed, it was nature /landscapes in the early days and became modern architecture and travel photography these days. If you ask yourself why I mentioned travel photography without having much of it in my portfolio, you’re right. Although I have plenty of material, I’m very picky about selecting pictures for publication, because it’s somewhat a new field and really difficult for me to judge whether an image is suitable / good enough for publication.
Btw.: I still owe you pictures from Thailand, right?
I really would need holidays to catch up editing all the images I want to publish. I guess, I will reduce the editing effort to be able to publish more frequently. What do you think?

Anyways, it’s already a lot of text, when I started to write this post I didn’t intend to write much… Let the pictures speak! I’ll start publishing new pictures soon, stay tuned 😉

Back from Thailand

I came back from Thailand two weeks ago!
Wow, I’m stoked by all the things I experienced and the people I met, I really had a great time although I had some bummers like damaged photo equipment and food poisoning for 2 days.
After I had a good time and plenty of amazing photographic opportunities (mainly modern architecture and the desert) back in Dubai and Abu Dhabi with my friend Matthias Haltenhof I took a plane to Bangkok and stayed there for 6 days. After Bangkok I flew to the north, to Chiang Mai for another 6 days to experience the Thai landscape (jungle, landscape, elephants etc.). As my last destinations I chose the golf islands Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao to relax and go snorkeling for over a week.

When I arrived at home I wasn’t unhappy (to say the least!) that we didn’t have proper winter in Germany, because it is not so convenient to travel from a place with 34°C to a place with around 0°C. Instead I’m enjoying sunny days with temperatures of around 5-10°C south of Munich, I think now I’m prepared for the real winter 😉

Right now I’m preparing two series of pictures, “Modern architecture in the UAE” and “Impressions of Thailand”. It still will take plenty of time to sort out and process the picture but I’d like to start uploading the first pictures in the next weeks and months!

I also like to write a little bit more detailed travel report of my journey through Thailand, with plenty of pictures. Stay tuned 😉

Happy new year!
