Hi, my name is Ivo Berg, and for the last 5 years I have grown more and more addicted to photography.
I started in 2008 and the hobby quickly developed to become the centre point of my life. Today I cannot leave the house without my camerabag, no day is without photography.
I enjoy very different kinds photography:
Travel, Urban Exploration, Candid and Street Photography and several others. However my biggest passion is Travel Photography...I love to travel.
That is also the reason why I started my big "Asia Adventure on June 01 2013. I took a oneway flight to Bangkok, Thailand and am travelling Asia since that day.
You can follow this project and all of my photography here on Flickr and on my "Blog.

"We all know that Ivo is a wonderful photographer. He is definitely not afraid of teaching and sharing what he knows (and loves), and that is something you don't find very often among talented people. Besides being an awesome photographer, he's a fantastic friend too!. It's not easy to find friends, and people that you really connect with, and I have found a fantastic teacher and friend in him. I also found a chocolate partner since we even love the same type of Ritter Sport.
He is definitely an outstanding person. I can't thank him enough for everything he has taught me! definitely- A FAVE!
Thanks for all the motivation and your words of wisdom, Ivy!"

"Ivo always takes a little book along with him where he shows his favourite pictures around. That is useful, but why not taking a little netbook along instead? An internet connection and a browser where you type "http://www.flickr.com/photos/crazy-ivory/". That would be enough to convince any viewer of his qualities. Though I admit that booklet is already something!
So, Ivo is very honest and detailed in the comments he writes you. He takes enough time to tell you how he would have improved things - or on the other hand how he admires your pictures though there's still a little detail wrong - just a pixel with an improper colour maybe :-)
But I always appreciate his thoughts! And I like how close he looks.
So, If you (I mean any random reader) reads this line I have to ask you to stop reading further and click this photostream button on the top and look through his pictures and search some of my favourite Ivo-pictures: A couple on the roof of a buidling over the city watching towards two big chimneys. Or the guy who is changing the letters for the ad of a cinema. The other couple that is walking on a silhoutte bridge sorrounded by huge windows and a big wall.
Ok, but there's still so much else to discover - enjoy the stream and how Ivo sees the world around him. It's not rarely a pleasure for the eye and soul.
Weiter so Ivo! Hoffentlich bis bald dann mal wieder :-)"

"I had the placer to meet Ivory in Berlin. I had seen his photostream before and he allways gets amazing shots. He was very kind and had the patience to guide me arround, show me places to take pictures, forgive my horrible german and speak in english for me.
Ivory has a great eye to catch moments and always finds creative angles and compositions. He's not a common photographer, but there's no need to say this: his photostream speaks for itself.
Just like everyone, I'm surprised how fast he has become an amazing photographer. No doubt at all he has talent and it's nice to see he keeps shooting everyday, processing his images, getting in touch with photographers through flickr and improving more and more.
At this speed, I have no clue how his pictures will look like in the future, but I do know one thing: they will be amazing."

"This guy is truly amazing, I find myself going back to his stream again and again even though I looked at the pictures several times already.
I don't know how he found me on flickr, but I'm really glad he did, he has such a fantastic way of showing what he sees. And I totally love his style. =]"

"Ivo is clearly a gifted photographer & his work is inspirational which makes recieving one of his awards that more special than what you get from other groups. Ivo is clearly setting the standard."

"This young man has amazing talent and I know we will see big big things from him in the future. All the very best to you my friend :-)"

"Ivo started just a few months ago with photography, and his work is already outstanding, which can easily be seen by the massive response he receives everyday for his work. He has a very good eye and conceives scenes very intuitive and is very good in playing with light and shadows.
I foresee a long and very fertile career - even if photography just stays a hobby for you... but you never know :)"

"Just received the coveted award...thanks so much!
Your stream is truly amazing...especially considering how recently you've taken up photography.
Keep walking the walk, Ivo. Your stuff is fantastic!
5th September, 2008
"I don't know Crazy Ivory but he gave one of my photos his coveted award which made my day. My 10-year old son actually took the picture in question and I reckon the award has made his life! Having looked at Crazy Ivory's photostream it's clear he has a real talent and I'll be coming back to his pictures in the hopes of learning from them. Five months in and he's this good - makes you sick doesn't it! I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see him doing this for a living in the future."

"Strong, flawless, thoughtfully framed images that show a command of color, motif, composition, light and emotion that are preternatural. His images are intimate and welcoming, as though you are are literally seeing life through his eyes. And life, even the most mundane of details – such as throwing away a tissue – is grand and iconic in the mind and lens of Crazy Ivory. If this is what he's producing NOW I cannot wait to see what he comes up with in the future."
17th August, 2008
"Hey thanks for the Crazy Ivory award.
My first Flickr Award ever!
Your Minds Eye is a beautiful one.
I look forward to what you post next."

"Ivo is new in photography but his talent is amazing and it is reflecting through his photos. He has a great eye for composition and his passion for photography is shown in every image of his.
This man is having a great future in photography!!!"
11th August, 2008
"This extraordinarily talented, young man simply knows how to see and think, both conceptually and visually, and then use his camera, intelligently, to express his vision. The fruit is on full display, in his photostream, for all to see. I need say no more, because his work speaks for itself. Bravo...and keep going!"
