Flexible Technique Stand Development

Stand Development


One of the best moments of shooting analog is when finally you pull the film out of the developing tank. But it is a long way from shooting to holding the film strip in your hands.

Travel Lab for Film Development

Travel Lab Film Dev


As mentioned in one of the last pots, for my work in Thailand I just brought two film cameras. No digital. On the one hand it is simplistic. On the other hand … Shooting film cameras on longer travels will bring you a “new” set of problems to solve compared to digital photography. On the […]

Instagram Thailand Sangkhlaburi

Instagram Reloaded


While shooting in Thailand for a little while, I decided to restart posting images on Instagram again – though not really being a big fan of the photo platform.

New camera added Mamiya RB67

Latest Pick: Mamiya RB67 Film Camera


The family has grown again. Talking about my camera family. Recently a very special new member was adopted: the classic, famous Mamiya RB67 Pro. Totally not made for me. That’s why I bought it.

Emotions in photography

Emotions in Photography


Photography is talking in a visual language. Often this language is not even known by the viewer, but our job is making him feel it – somehow. The feel, a mood, the emotional side of photography, might be one of the most difficult tasks in shooting and post processing. But it is worth the effort […]

Time moves of relative scales

The Relative Speed of Time


Time moves with relative speed. Your time and mine. No worries, we are not going to study physics nor will we dig into Einstein’s theories about relativity. We are photographers trying to improve the workflow of your our photography. For us the speed of time is a major factor worth to have a closer look […]

Hell meets Heaven

Capture the Essence


What makes a capture a good photograph? There might be a thousand answers, many of them even conflicting. And in the end “good” anyway is always in the eye of the viewer. Some like, some dislike. But one thing for sure will give your photos a big push: Instead of capturing it all focus just […]

Testing the GoPro 4 in Venice

Testing GoPro 4 in Low Light


A project needs documentation. Since this task is not my favorite part of work I was looking for a simple point and shoot kind of solution with video capability. Ok, slightly extreme video capability was a major must. In the end I opted for a GoPro. As a first step I headed out for challenging […]



We believe in the value of change.

Destruction gives place to new.

New mistaken for better.

Nature, monuments, traditions – nothing sacred.

No questions. No balance.

Emotions and senses vanish.

Lost vocabulary: dignity and respect.

Acting today impacts the future.

We shall better preserve.

We shall better take care.

Irreversible destruction is everlasting.
