A couple of weeks ago, I did my first TEDx Talk.
I explained how I started with aerial photography, gave insights into how we as a species have developed over time and how we entered the Anthropocene.
You will see and understand how connected everything on our planet is and how connected we are with everything in our everyday lives. Aerial photography has great power to give insights into to world we live in, but check out yourself:

Solo Exhibition of my aerial photo book project HABITAT at Deutsches Museum München.
Now it is official: My first photo book HABITAT will be published in October this year. To fund the production costs of the book, I started a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. This campaign is an opportunity to pre-order a signed and numbered copy from a limited edition of 300 books and to help me, turning the idea of this project into a real book. You can also buy limited posters editions, fine art prints and some other cool stuff at the campaign. Have a look!
HABITAT CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN ON KICKSTARTER
This is a all-or-nothing funding: If this project doesn’t reach its funding goal, the book won’t become real and everyone, who supported in the campaign will get their money back. This is why I need your help and your support. Please support this project by sharing the crowdfunding campaign on social networks and anyone that might be interested in. Your help is greatly appreciated!
I am very pleased to announce my first photo book »HABITAT« which will be published around autumn 2018 through one of the best known publishing houses in Germany. The Book is about my long term project of aerial views that show human intervention in natural spaces – from agricultural areas to road crossings, from open pit mining to waterways.
The photographs are arranged according to superior questions: Where do we mine raw materials, how does agriculture affect nature, how do roads and railways change our habitat? These questions are answered in five chapters with 90 photographs as well as some representative facts and infographics which can be added by overlapping a image.
For updates about the book, please send your Name to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will get a notification about availabilities.
Late last year I did win the DJI Drone Photography Award by The British Journal of Photography and DJI. Last week I’ve been to the exhibition opening of the Award in London. Here is a short snippet of the opening night.

Last week I went to a frozen lake to take some aerial shots from the shore line. I was really surprised when I saw the structure of the ice surface from above. I did a visual study of the ice patterns. It looks like some detail shots and they are in a way but of a bigger scale then you might guess. All shots where taken from around 100 meter above the surface. The distance from left the right is about 80 meter.
Winter is unveiling some interesting structures in cultivated landscapes. This is my first aerial photo series, showing reforestation in it’s earlier stadium at a tree nursery farm.
