Stockholm - a City of Islands and Bridges

For a long time I wanted to visit Stockholm and, finally, this spring, I had the chance. And what a wonderful trip it was! The pace of life is slower than in and around London, and everything is fabulously well organised. People are friendly and helpful, and of course all speak English. That made me feel at home straight away!
And just imagine - photography day and night, architecture, water, people, the world’s longest art gallery in the underground system, and a photography museum/gallery, which is open til well after midnight! Pure indulgence!

Of course, I have to go back to this lovely city, and I will take you with me, if you fancy, in September 2020, when I will run a Light & Land tour to Stockholm. Check out my Workshops & Tours page to see a selection of photographs, and the Diary section for details of the trip and to reserve your place.

LIGHT & LAND

My excitement is hard to describe. Although I have known now for a couple of months that I will be joining Light & Land, today was the day when I was announced as one of the tutors of the company, and it felt a little bit like a big birthday or some other important day of celebration. I am honoured to have been asked, and have gladly accepted the invitation. To be able to work as part of such a fantastic group of people is a wonderful new opportunity for me to share my love of photography with like-minded folk.

I have already put my first workshop together - it will be a day of photographic exploration in York, England's 'Eternal City'. It's a city full of character, with medieval streets and a cathedral that will take your breath away. For more information and to book your place, visit Light & Land's website by clicking here
 

RETURN AT LONG LAST

I spent one year of my Masters degree studying in Sofia, Bulgaria. That was back in 1989/1990. A historic year for me - monumental changes took place in my home country East Germany as well as in Bulgaria. Now, 28 years later, I decided it was time to return and explore Bulgaria with the camera.
A lot has changed in those 28 years, most of it for the better. It was wonderful of course to meet up with old friends, whom I hadn’t seen for decades. And capturing place and people with a camera was enriching and a great experience. I can’t wait to go back.

URBAN SCENES - A NEW PASSION?

I spent a few days in Bruges, Belgium and something happened I thought was impossible: I came back with some urban photographs. Bruges is a fascinating city and well worth exploring with the camera.
