Hi there and welcome to my site!

My name is Karsten and I am a German based photographer and designer.

After a few years participating on flickr I wanted to have my own photoblog and that was the start of this site in 2009. Sharing my photography to the world from my own place on the interwebs.

Taking photos started early for me. During my childhood I discovered my passion for photography. Film it was those days. I started with a Canon camera and switched later on to Nikon. Being a loyal Nikonian for many, many years. Still owning my trusty old Nikon F3.

Going digital happened late for me. I waited for the technology to become better and, you might guess it, more affordable. My first digital camera was a Nikon Coolpix 950 S, S for slow and small number of megapixels. I remember that I bought my first DSLR in 2006, a Nikon of course.

These days I don’t care so much about the brand of camera. It’s the quality that I want form a camera or the versatile and convenient package like the iPhone, which is a wonderful camera as well.

Excerpts from the comments ...

  • Fantastische Aufnahme, diese Schärfe ist gigantisch.
  • I just started following your Tumblog and I just wanted to say that the quality of your photos is quite something, especially for iPhone photography!
  • Bright colors put a smile on my face, thank you!
  • Beautiful color and detail.
  • The solitary bird projects both freedom and loneliness in the vast sky, powerful image.
For some years I was running side projects on posterous.

AyePhoneography … thru the glossy screen and Project365 (2010) – based on photos taken with the iPhone. After posterous shut down in 2013 I integrated these photos into this site.

Now you will find here a selection of high quality photos shot with various DSLRs, a variation of iPhone photos (iPhoneography), some links and thoughts of mine.
