About

I was born in 1992 in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. My family already took me out into nature for hiking in my early childhood and thus, the approach to nature was set. I remember my greatest delight was being outside and observing crawling animals, such as spiders and beetles. After visiting the palm house in Vienna a couple of times, it was clear to me that one day I simply had to visit the tropics myself. The high humidity, the beautiful colours and the smell of decomposing plants captured my imagination and has stuck in my mind ever since. As a consequence I enrolled biology at the University of Vienna and shortly after, I was on my first trip to the tropics.

Due to the exciting scenery and the fascinating wildlife, the quality of my photographs has become of increasing importance to me. Capturing fascinating nature and the atmosphere of the wilderness helps me sharing my experiences and showing people the beauty of nature.

In the beginning I focused primarily on reptiles and amphibians, but for about two years, I have broadened my scope to wildlife in general and landscapes.
