Who am I?

Hello,

my name is David, I am a hobby photographer from Stuttgart, Germany. Working in IT for almost 20 years most of the time having to deal with very complicated, high pressure customer situations. My primary hobby is photography which I find a wonderful counter balance as I also see it as a form of meditation.

After spending my teens with a Minolta X-700 film camera which included also developing the B&W films, my hobby fell dormant for around 15 years. In late 2012 I picked my hobby up again. My first digital camera was a Nikon D80. Have to admit, that here and there I was suffering from the “GAS” syndrome 😉 Does more megapixels give you better pictures… no…

Why this website?

It was during the first workshop where our trainer encouraged us to setup our own website. Basically, to force yourself to post something on a more regular basis but also to get to know WordPress/hosting/blogging etc. but also to as a tool to review one’s own progress or lack of… 😉

Inspiration

  • Great inspiration and tips & tricks I got from several photography workshops with: Andreas Martin.
    The highlights here have been the trips to Venice and Paris.
  • To improve my B&W photography I attended a dedicated B&W Masterclass and two 1:1 sessions with Paul Gallagher. Additional workshops with his company Aspect2i.co.uk followed. The highlights were here the Aspect2i trips to Japan (Hokkaido in winter), USA (Yosemite) & Iceland.
  • Edmund Bugdoll (Fotoakademie München) is another great resource and inspiration for me who helped me develop my skills and techniques further in 2016 until this year 2020. Here the highlights were the several B&W workshops in Venice, two in Sylt and two in Iceland.
  • David Osborn – This was probably the most intensive course I ever did. 1:1 across 12 days with a real in-depth Photoshop advanced course.

Even if one is only doing this for oneself, it is great fun and you learn something new (WordPress, hosting, etc.).

All feedback is welcome. Moreover, I am also always happy to answer any questions you might have regarding the locations that I visited.

Take care,

David

PS: WordPress theme is “Border” from Pixelgrade.com – really great company and support if needed.

    Hallo Thomas,
    sorry, war die ganze letzte Woche beruflich unterwegs.
    Die Nähmaschine war im ersten Raum links, wenn man aus dem großen Ballsaal durch die linke Tür ging. Dort wo es dann auch in den Keller geht.
    Bin dabei eine Reihe in B&W zu erstellen, feile aber noch am einheitlichen Bildlook 🙂
    Gruß
    David

    Hallo David,
    von Deinen Fotografien bin ich hoch beeindruckt. Die hast eine Art zu fotografieren, die mir sehr gut gefällt. Deine Islandbilder sind Hammer, tolle Impressionen!

      Danke Herbert für Dein positives Feedback! Die Vestrahorn Bilder machen mich noch nicht so richtig glücklich. Das erinnert mich, ich muss Island vom letzten Jahr noch verlinken 😉
      Viele Grüße!
      David
