Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, I have been interested in and practicing photography since my early teens, beginning with a Leica given to me by my father, and proceeding through film technology and darkroom work all the way to today’s high-resolution software-supported digital and HDR technology.
My professional career as a researcher and professor in computer science took me across the world, resulting in countless opportunities for meeting people and recording fascinating landscapes, architectures, and urban scenes all over the globe. The strongest focus of my art work so far has been nature, landscape, and travel photography.
I have been living in Southern California for the past 15 years, enjoying the climate, scenery, and people in this region of the world. Since retiring in 2011 from full-time work in his scientific job I have been pursuing professional status in photography, cooperating with many artists in the area and beyond, and taking part in many gallery exhibits across the region.
