As a child, I looked through my father's SLR camera. A whole new world opened up for me instantly.

My senses were focused and the rest of the world was no longer happening. It was the beginning of a long friendship.

Around 2005 I switched from an analogue Nikon F3 to digital cameras. Today I take photos with a Leica Q2 Reporter, a Nikon D610 and

edit in Photoshop CC. But like in analogue times I only want to carry out the essential work steps in the laboratory.

Thats's why no AI is used.

I am and I will remain an amateur with a lot of passion.

And by my side the best wife in the world. At the same time also a very patient "photo model". Thank you for wonderful years together.

    reFocus Awards (Montag, 02 Oktober 2023 19:51)

    Hi Robert,

    My name is Drey and I’m the Outreach Manager at the reFocus Photo Awards, a new contest and platform celebrating the most distinguished and exciting photography from around the world. A few months back I discovered your work and was immediately drawn to it. I took the liberty of sharing your website with our team and we've all agreed that we'd love to see you get the recognition and exposure you deserve.

    That being said, we would be honored to see your work as part of our next contest- the Black & White Photo Contest- for free, using the code BNW2023.

    Winners will receive $4,000 USD in cash prizes, global exposure, custom press assets, winner’s certificates, and more. We had over 97 countries represented in our last contest!

    You can find out more about our awards and benefits on our contest page:

    If you decide to enter (I hope you do!) You can use code BNW2023 during the “Summary” stage of checkout before October 10th to cover the entire cost of a single image entry in one contest category.

    I'm happy to help if you have any questions, otherwise, keep up the great work!

    Dear Robert, keep designing your homepage as good as before. The new look is very spartan and that's why I like your HP and your pictures. Your Mike.

    Lieber Robert, klar, nüchtern und absolut ästhetisch! Deine neue Homepage ist wirklich wundervoll! Ganz zu schweigen natürlich von deinen Fotos. Sie zeigen das Wesentliche, mal ungewöhnlich, mal krass, mal verspielt, aber immer aus einem ganz besonderen Blickwinkel und mit einem einzigartigen Sinn fürs Detail!

    The new division into rubrics is much better. Now they just need to be filled with amazing pictures. I still find the minimalist look pleasant. Greetings from the other side of the globe. Yoshiko1966 from Tokyo
