my name is Achim,
I have about 60 years of life experience
and I'm an enthusiastic photo amateur.

My favourite subjects are animals in the wild and flowers, travel photography, a bit of architecture and something that I would call "this and that".

I started in 1966 with a "Kodak Instamatic 25",
went to analog SLR with Mamiya ZE-X and Contax 159MM in the mid-80ies and
took a photo break (all equipment was stolen) with some Sony Handycams in the 90ies.
In 2002 I returned to photography and went digital,
first with a Canon Powershot A40 (2003) and
to DSLR with 300D (2004),
Canon 20D (2005)
Canon 5D Mark II in (2009-2015)
an "always in the pocket" Canon Powershot S95 (2010) and
Canon 6D (2014)
Canon 7D Mark II (2015) .

We live in the center of Frankfurt am Main, Germany and have a small backyard garden (200 sqm) which is the source for most of my flower and macro captures.

I hope that you like some of my pictures ... enjoy!

Greetings to you all

    "AnyMotion is able to produce such amazing flower shots time and time again. A lot of the pictures from the flowers in his garden and I can only imagine what a colorful paradise it must be. But his skill is not just in floral photogrpahy, his animal work is also very impressive. I especially enjoyed his Africa series from his recent trip there. A wonderful photographer and great contact to have.

    White Red Flower says:

    "AnyMotion is one of the best flowers' photographer that I have met on Flickr. Its flowers are an unforgettable experience and its knowledge of them, it's great.

    Its photos tell the great passion that he has for flowers and plants because in every shot there is feeling, harmony and beauty.
    The photos in this stream are extraordinarily beautiful and he is a photographer able to discover the most intimate beauty of a flower or a plant or of a small detail of which is constituted and that the greatest part of the people don't imagine that can exist.

    Every shot is perfect, taken care of in the least details, extremely sober, elegant and refined.
    AnyMotion is a great creator of emotions, for the one that, as I, love the flowers deeply and it knows them very well.

    I want to thank him for the emotions that he gives me everytime that I look at one of his photo and to tell him that I am happy to have him known.
    Thanks Achim!"
