About me

Hi, Gert here.

I picked up my first photography camera in the early ’70s. It was my fathers camera and thankfully he let me use it for making photos of our family, friend and travels. I kept developing my photography skills ever since. A few years later I also had the chance to start with video filming. First in monochrome and years after that in color. That all started in 1978.

From that time on then I also kept developing my photography, videography and editing skills with the latest tools when they came available on the market. I learned working with the first versions of Photoshop, Lightroom, Capture One and for video: Premiere, Final Cut Pro, DaVinci Resolve.

You can find my work on this website, my Youtube channel and FlickR page.
