I started doing photography with an analog camera (Minolta SRT100x), fully manual, which i still use sometimes. Now I use a Canon 70D but a lot of the pictures on this site were shot with a Sony alpha700, some with the Olympus EPL1, some with the Iphone4s.
After school I spent three years in England, studying linguistics (BA) and working as a translator (books, manuals). After that I did a foundation year in graphic design. Then I studied engineering. During these studies I went to the Academy for Applied Photography. A lot of what I know now I know since then:
There is no right or wrong in art.
A blurry picture is not a bad picture.
Feeling a picture is like listening to music.
and much, much more.
After that I took lessons in photography with Fritz Langmann, preparing for the Photography Masters Exam.
Eventually I did not have to do it because in 2014 photography became a free trade in Austria, finally!!!
