I have made it my life's mission to photograph the beauty of the natural world using photography as my medium. I have always had an adventurous spirit, and as a young child in Germany, I vividly remember wandering through the grassy fields that surrounded my village, traversing winding streams, climbing through tress, and just being completely enthralled by the outdoors. As I grew older and began to travel more, I developed a deeper appreciation for the many wonders this planet has to offer.
I have to admit, though, that no place has piqued my fascination more than the deserts of the Southwestern United States. As I trekked across the shifting sands of the Algodones Dunes, bouldered the many bizarre rock formations of the Alabama Hills, and walked among the beautiful Joshua Trees, I became enamored with the unique geography of this region. It was such a completely foreign environment to what I had ever experienced in Germany, that I felt an immediate and overwhelming desire to explore it. I also wanted to convey to others what I experienced at that moment in time.
Maybe this will inspire others to help preserve this amazing natural world :-)
