“People ask me quite often why I became a professional nature photographer. What else? Already as a young boy I explored the beauty of nature around my home. I could be found often on my knees crawling through the field where I had exciting encounters with strange-looking insects and friendly croaking frogs. There is nothing more beautiful than that! Nowadays my work as a photographer is still an excuse for me to crawl around in a field with beautiful flowers and small animals. Just like in my early childhood, but now with a camera in my hand”.
