For a change, and long time coming, we actually did what we love doing, pack our camper and go where the nose points to. Last weekend it happened to be the Kalahari, where we parked off on a dune and roamed the area. Interestingly, and yet again, I took the big bag, tripod and entire […]

Cars Growing Trees

On a farm in the south of Namibia, a car and an acacia tree exist in tranquil harmony. By the looks of it for decades and more to come. So long Tommy

Burnt House #1

It was a while ago when we spent a weekend at Gross Barmen, a Hot Springs Resort on the banks of the Swakop River, 100kms from Windhoek. “We”, that would be a friendly and fun bunch of graphic designers and my humble self, who got together informally, took some pictures, exchanged ideas and later looked […]

Harsh Tranquility

I took this picture at the Namibian coast (Atlantic), at a place called Mile 108. If this very part of coastline, also called the Skeleton Coast, would be a child or a pet, you would probably refer to it as having “a face only a mother can love”. It is harsh and cold, most of […]

More Candid Camera

It’s interesting, how you shoot more pictures of the first born – me at least. The boys’ granddad even mentioned to me that in his case child photography decreased gradually from number one to number four. I remember running around with the camera glued to my forehead during the early days/months/years of Maximilian. Pictures were […]

Shoes

Which photographer – of any background or style – can claim that his or her camera does not frequently wander to point at the kids and/or at what ever (the heck) they are doing at a given time … only to declare those pictures the absolutely most wonderful in the entire collection? … no matter […]

Canon 5D Mark II … is it just me?

Review @ dpreview.com

… or does the Mark II feel somewhat “plasticy”? As usual and due to the fact that I rarely buy equipment at or shortly after release, I’m way behind the drag curve with this. Also, I look after glass and gear extremely well and thus work with a given model for a long time. I […]

The Mask

The Mirror Conspiracy or Am I on To Something? Playing around with HDR and Tonal Mapping lately, I am revisiting many of my Namib Desert and Namib Naukluft images, which never made it to the digital darkroom. Not because they are just plain bad, but because mostly there is at least one thing wrong with […]

Window Seat

Window Seat or “Does The Camera Really Matter?” I was on a flight back from Johannesburg after a day of meetings, glad to be heading home. Cramped into a ridiculously small space, as usual on these kinds of routes, I was staring out the window looking forward to getting out of this flying tin of […]
