Almost all of my photographs can be licensed via editorial and commercial license to be used in print and online media.

During my time as a professional photographer I noticed a lack of high quality and fair licensing services. With the rise of the internet as a primary media outlet, the demand for authentic images of the highest quality has never been higher.

Yet the same images appear over and over again on almost all sites due to stock agencies search and curation criteria which lead to repetitiveness, mishmash and sometimes alienation from over-exposure to the same old images.


My solution to this issue is to offer my images to enhance your project, your brand, your story giving it the visual appeal it deserves. With my photography I set out to inspire others with stories of places told in beautiful and memorable images or video content. Many of them tell of my home in the German Austrian and Swiss Alps with its unique mountains, lakes and glaciers as well as travels to Iceland, Scotland and Ireland and its oftentimes surreal landscape.

Most of my work can be found here on my website or on my various social media outlets like Instagram, 500px or Behance and since I am constantly traveling my archive is growing ever so fast, giving you the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of motifs that have never been seen before and I am happy to assist you with advice and everything else you might need as well as custom images or videos and the option for an exclusive license.
