Born in 1953 at Oberhausen/Germany, the heart of the Ruhr Area. I studies Photo-Design at the University of Essen, then worked for several years in the social area as pedagogue. At the time of the internet and the development of the digital photography I have got the opportunity to earn money with the photography, my passion. Then I was already 50, but I picked up the chance and since 2010 I have worked fulltime for several microstock agencies. My themes are people, specially seniors but adult education, food and lifestyle too. From time to time I have fun to make pictures of myself.
