I‘m a climber born in the flatlands of Hamburg, Germany, but have been drawn to the mountains from an early age. When I first picked up a camera it was a means to explain to non-climbing friends and family what we were actually doing out there in the mountains. My interest in photography grew along with the addiction to spend as much time climbing as possible. I soon made Munich my base and the mountains from the Wilder Kaiser to Cerro Torre my home. On the rare occasions that I‘m not out climbing, I work as a surgeon in Munich.
