Studied electronics and painting in Germany and Austria. Long time living as an artist with 50 art exhibitions in DE, AT, CH, IT and USA, from the 1980ies up to now with paintings and in the last 8 years with fine art photography too. Some big painting and photography artworks in architectural contexts (church, school, house, museum, memorial site).
Occasionally I'm producing video tutorial DVD's for the german speaking publishers video2brain / Addison-Wesley. A 2006 production was "Landscape, Architecture, Panorama", which got an update in 2010 covering the whole process of panorama production in 18 hours of live tutorial videos and screencasts: Praxistraining Fotografie: Panorama). It's a perfect supplement to the book.
