I enthusiastically started photography when I was eleven, a long time ago.
I never lost this enthusiasm.
I am male.
Köln / Cologne, Germany
viele denken, Photographie hätte nichts mit Kunst zu tun
es ist aber Kunst - wenn man es kann.
manchmal denke ich - ich könnte ich es schon ... :)

"Rainer's photography is a constant source of inspiration and amazement for me. There are few people on flickr I know who publish photos at such a constant high level of quality.
His work is full of quiet beauty, it's complicated and very easy at the same time. He is a master of composition, bringing complex scenes to life with a gentle hand and incorruptible eye. His talent is not only for photography but also for selecting locations. Rainer is a great observer of other peoples' images as well, mostly providing excellent feedback.
Rainer's love for light and mood is one of the things I enjoy so much in his images and he always seems to take a step back and let his images speak for themselves. He never tries to force a way of seeing on his viewers and allows us to make our own discoveries. This is a wonderful quality and makes him stand out in an environment that can be ego driven, attention seeking and superficial.
I am so glad I found him on flickr, he is a much loved friend and great artist who has changed the way I approach my own photography."

"Rainer is a wonderful photographer and an equally wonderful contact.
It's always a pleasure to see what he's up to.
His sense of composition is inspirational.
He is always ready with an honest opinion and it's usually spot on.
I strongly encourage anyone unfamiliar with his work to take the time and look. You will be very happy that you did!"
