new zealand_____

All pictures were taken during my awesome trip through New Zealand from November 2000 until May 2001.

Thanks to all the wonderful people I met, my website is too small to list them all. Special thanks to my best companion for the whole trip, the perfect wheather.

Hope I'll be back soon...


The eventful landscape of New Zealand is a fascination on it's own. In combination with the changeable weather, the clear air and the rich colours it's getting unreal sometimes.

Frequently I heard travellers comparing NZ with Norway or Switzerland. But within hours you can see rainforest and tussock-steppe, glaciers and palms, volcanos and green hills. For me New Zealand is incomparable!



The pictures were taken with a Minolta Dynax 505si, Minolta AF Zoom 28-80 and 70-210, UV-filter and sometimes circular Pol-filter. I used Fuji Velvia 50 and Sensia 100 films.

I was born in Munich / Germany in the summer of '69 and grew up close to the alps. Since 1998 I live and work as landscapearchitect in Berne / Switzerland, beautiful place to live...

Beside travelling and photography I like nearly every kind of outdoor-sport. Espacially the ones where I don't have to move very much, like kayaking, diving, climbing...
