Photography is my hobby. I have a lot of positive experiences with it. Photography is a welcoming break from daily work. I started taking pictures when I was 14. I bought a used SLR equipment with my first earned money and dreamed to make big pictures. But that wasn't so when I saw my first results.
To improve my skill I visited workshops, was member of different photo clubs and bought a lot of equipment. I am a member of the foto community flickr since 2007, and this was also the time where I made the most progress. I have a lot of friends in flickr all over the world. We are sharing the passion for photography and of coarse inspiration.
During my progress I found a fondness in nature and landscapes photography. Favorite topics are trees, wide landscapes and atmospheric moods with direct sunlight. In landscape photography there is a risk of making pictures that just look like pretty postcards, which I personally don't like. I am still in progress, a goal for me is to shift from nice pictures to meaningful picture.
Most pictures in my archive where captured with Nikon F4s on Velvia slides. I changed very late in 2007 to digital technique. Shortly before I worked 2 years strictly with a Sinar 4x5inch camera. I was fascinated on the advantages of adjustments and to do everything manually. My fondness for landscape photography leads my also to panorama technic using a Noblex roundshot camera. Currently all the analog stuff is unused, I completely in digital world. With the Nikon D700 I am on full frame again, after steping up from D200 and D80. At moment I would never give away my digitally equipment. Because the possibilities are huge and I mean its efficiency is better as with analog cameras.

Pavel M says:
"Gregor is a very accomplished photographer. As a photographer, I particularly value his effort to notice and show subtleties that often escape many of us, no matter how hard we try to see them or to capture them. That to me comes pretty close to what I see as creativity. I see Gregor as a very creative photographer in a subtle, non-showy way that really appeals to me.
Yet this would not be enough for me to write a testimonial. Gregor was the very first on PP that encouraged me and advised me and who saw a potential for my future growth when few others saw it or expressed it. I treasured his comments greatly and still do. To me Gregor is another pillar of the PP group and one of the reasons I keep on coming back.
Thank you Gregor for helping me grow as a photographer"

""Gregor" ein langjähriger Freund von mir, auch im Fotografischen Sinne!
Wir haben viel fotografiert, Ausstellungen & Bücher angeschaut,
geplaudert und auch ein wenig miteinander gekocht.
Gregor ist nicht nur ein Meisterkoch, er hat sich auch zu einem,
für mich besten Landschaftsfotografen hochgearbeitet!
Ich freue mich für Ihn und wünsche weiterhin viel Erfolg und "Gut Licht"!
P.s. Schade das ich in Wien bin!!
Liebe Grüße Robert"

"Gregor's photographic works possess an irresistible mixture of clarity and freshness. This trademark reflects in many ways the light and the freshness of his home location surrounded by the great landscape of the Alps. Through his photographic eye he has captured the beauty of the mountains, the valleys and the forests during all seasons of the year. Breathtakingly beautiful photographic works which inspire and motivate me. Besides being an excellent photographer Gregor is also a good friend and someone who always gives honest and constructive feedback. Gregor, thank you for your friendship and for sharing your photographic works."

"Gregor is an inspiration! I can't wait for each of his new photos to appear on his photostream. His landscapes are incredible. One of the reasons I strive to learn more about photography is to accomplish similar balance and beauty in my photos."

"Gregor is an astonishing landscape photographer whos work inspires me. He has the courage to follow his own vision and produces beautiful natural images. Gregor, I think you were one of my first Flickr contacts as I started here, and I remember looking through your stream and enjoying the images. I hope you get to chase after the "perfect shot", getting closer and closer when time goes on, as this in my oppinion is greatest in photography."

"Gregor became one of the landscape photographers I appreciate the most among my contacts. His work reveals great ability as a nature observer, fine technical skills and good aesthetic taste. Gregor's landscapes and Nature photos are never a cliché or postcard and one easily notices his creative efforts. Besides, Gregor lives in a beautiful European region, closely surrounded by some fantastic locations. Not least, he is a good friend and is polite but incisive comments always provide constructive feedback. To you, my friend, I wish all the best in your pursuit of the perfect light and landscape."

"After Looking through Halbwedl's incredible portfolio of professional photos, I had to add him as a contact because I found myself faving nearly every single photo I looked at. His captures of nature are rivaled by no one as far as I'm concerned, they are truly incredible compositions of some of the most beautiful locations I've seen. Their colors and vividness make every photo stand out, they all have a sense of his style."
11th August, 2008
"Dear Mr. Gregor Halbwedl,
I wanted to thank you for your wonderful comments. They are of a great help to me (as I am an eternal beginner) and also, they encourage me because they come from a perfect photographer as you are. Your photos truly inspire me.
Danke schön :)

"Gregor is a fairly new contact, but one whose stream I look forward to visiting daily due to his beautiful depiction of Winter. He has also been very helpful with composition advice on my images and is helping me to see my subject through new eyes."

"How Can I say about a Man who i don´t Know?, just can i talk about the things he show us. He show us Nature, Beauty, Peace....incredibles landscapes.
We can see, in his photos, a very sensitive person who can "take" the moment, the peace and feelings about a place.
Here you can find amazing places, throught his eyes and his camera we can find out a new world.
Just come on, and see.
PD: sorry about my poor english my friend"
