As far back as I can remember, I have been very interested in nature and always enjoyed being out in the field looking for animals. I love all animals but very early I developed a special affinity for amphibians and reptiles.
So when I was a little child, I helped toads to cross the road during spring. In the summer I moved tadpoles from a puddle that was about to dry out to a nearby pond.
In 2010 I went to Costa Rica for three months to work as a volunteer in a nature conservation project. This trip was the reason why I bought my first DSLR camera.
From then on, nature photography developed into a great passion of mine.
