- I´m a german(born in 1961)who lives in Jämtland/Härjedalen in Sweden.
I came - together with my girl friend - to this area in the early nineties. At that time we had our own business for wilderness arrangements and worked with tourists.
After a few years we realized that there were not enough customers. That the earnings of this business were not really sufficient. Much fun but little money. With regret we finished off these activities then. Nevertheless we stayed here and worked in a variety of jobs since that time.
This is not easy, because there are more moose and reindeers than people in this area and not much work. Before we came to Sweden, we were both working as teachers in vocational trainings in Germany.
I like paddling and walking around in wilderness and wilderness-like areas and of course I love it also to take pictures there. My cameras are - with one exception - film cameras. These cameras are for me not only tools for to capture images. Somehow they are also the toys an (old) boy. Some of these toys are already a few decades old. I like this rugged veteran cameras built from metal. They feel very good in the hands.
You will have noticed that my shots are not as razor sharp as images, which were made with the latest high resolution digital cameras. Some of them are also a bit grainy. Friends, this is because I still use real films. This is a characteristic of most of the photographic films. The colors in my photos are usually a result of the film and the lenses I´m using. These words shall not excuse, but explain the look of my images.
There were times where photographers became famous, although they photographed on film. We may like it or not. Negative and slide images will still exist when most of today's digital images are long gone, as they can not be saved so long time. Modern digital cameras can certainly produce more exciting pictures, but...to me it feels much better to work with film than digital. You may now call me a photographic dinosaur. That does not bother me. I feel very comfortable with my old cameras.
Of course I scan the pictures later. Otherwise it´s not possible to show them here. ;-)
I own several cameras but my favorites are lightweight, sturdy cameras which are useful companions on nature hikes.
Be not angry with me if I make no one of you to my favorite. I think it's not nice to be excluded and do not want to exclude anyone.
Photographers whose work I especially like will note that the by my comments.
I wish everyone here always the best light for photographing.
