Welcome on my site.

Photography has been just a hobby for me for many years. Black and White is definitely my preferred domain, but I happen to practice color photography as well. I used to develop my black and white films in my own dark room for more than 30 years, but by the end of 2008 I decided to definitely migrate towards digital photography. Yet as an amateur photographer I continue to follow the same approach, "developing" and printing my photographs along the same logic.

For the majority of the photographs I use Nikon cameras (D90, D700 and D800E) , but quite a few are taken with a small Ricoh R8 compact camera. I also make use of a Reflecta RPS 7200 to scan my old slides and films, reminiscent of the good times with the dear old F801, F90X and F100.

After two decades spent in Germany, I now live in Luxembourg.



Enjoy having a look at my pictures.

PS: sorry for the portrait, but it was taken the day my preferred lens blew up....
