NEW AERIAL VIDEOS

I believe you do not need to visit exotic places to capture beautiful moments. Somtimes the best shots are to be found locally, even around your home. Silence, mist, sunlight, fog, sailboats, ruins, birds, water, hills.

Ars poetica
Coming soon

Deep sky photography, as a special area of astrophotography, requires a great deal of time spent in preparation and planning. As a result of the unusually long exposition time needed, ideally I am able to shoot one object per month, twelve a year at the most. However, as the weather is not always on my side, my dreams often don’t realise, but remain plans for future years. This means that I must plan ahead and prepare detailed shooting plans for 3 and 6-month periods, taking into consideration the travel routes of objects, climate conditions and the Moon phases. Not to mention my private appointments as well…
