the photographer

I use lots of different cameras, mostly, though, Sony-gear, as I started off using Minolta.

I really like to use my iPhone for photography. Its small, fits in my pocket and there are a lot of apps to play with.

This is my playground. I am just havin fun playing around and experimenting.

My images may not be used, copied or manipulated without my permission. If you want to blog any of my pictures, you are welcome. Just don't forget the link back to my Flickr-Page and tell me where you placed it. Thank you!

My time for exploring and commenting on pictures is limited. Thats why I try to keep the number of contacts to a 'manageable' amount. This might mean that I have to delete a contact if I get a new one....

I really appreciate your personal comments and feedback about my pictures. I am always happy to learn.
But please do not post big and colourful banners underneath my pictures. They don't mean anything to me.

Please don't send me links to pictures of yours. When I have time I will find the way myself, and if you are not my contact I might not find it at all. Thats life. If you want views and comments you should view and comment as well. That helps.

    "Saskia doesn't stop amazing me with her photography. I stand dazed and impressed in front of her photo stream. There's so much to be discovered in her world of photography. She is versatile, she constantly delivers something fresh, something new, exhilarating, moving. Her technique is solid, but that is not the thing that amazes me. It's her way of conceiving of life and the world. Saskia doesn't kiss anyone's butt with her photography and that's what makes her so popular and she deserves it."

    "Very creative, very attentive. Turning every-day-situation in pieces of art. An inspiration. An endless source of ideas. A good observer. An even better storyteller. A rare talent capable of reducing a scene to its essential(s)."

    "No flickr without Funny,
    no heaven without stars,
    no ocean without Fish,
    no city without cars.

    I am a fan of Funny,
    i'm sure i'll always be.
    And if i were a Fish
    her pictures were my sea."

    "I am inspired by the experimental, free, and keen eye of this fish. Her stream is filled with images that are reflective, engaging, serious, serene, and witty. Part of the joy of following FF's work is in seeing the unexpected. Perhaps an image of a waterside path will reappear from season to season, but always fresh and alive."

    "Funny Fish has a lot of testimonials, which is testimony itself to how popular she is. However, she does not gain popularity by underhanded methods (such as swamping groups). No, it's by her friendliness, humour and, above all, her excellent photography which has a unique trademark of insight and atmosphere. She has quite an eye for red objects too."

    "In a world full of talented photographers, Funny Fish has managed to find a distinctive style. It's in her subjects, but also the way she captures them. I love her experiments and her thoughtfulness, and never miss a chance to visit her stream.

    Funny Fish has been a contact for so long, it's sort of like watching a colt grow into a horse; simply amazing!"

    "fishy... ahh!
    chances are if you like the name funny fish, which she was ordained by a very special person, you will like this stream and all the unusual fish that congregate around it

    not just a reigning monarch of macros, a daring and continual photoscientist, funny fish is a life teacher -- sharing a world far beyond the camera lens

    her stream is embedded with tips and hints and savory moments; it's got color and cutouts, it's B/W and downright brilliant -- child portraiture, camera haikus, mood pieces, etc.

    don't be shy!!!! DIVE IN!!!!!!!"

    "When I look at the work of Funny Fish, I am forced to see the world in a different perspective. Her images are amazing and her range is broad from macro- to travel- and everyday-photography. With her sense of composition she is a truly talented artist. I always look forward to her new work when I open up my Flickr page.

    She also holds the prize for the absolute best car-porn ever!

    Flickr on, Saskia!"

    "I never met Funny Fish in person but I'm quite sure that she indeed is very funny. I'm also sure that she's not fishy at all. She probably also smells very good. Why do I think so? A person who shows such a refined eye for people, children, rhythm, detail, color and light in her photos can only emanate the heavenly scents of roses. Fishy's stream is a source of pure joy. -- Do I get paid for writing this? No, she only promised to send me some Basler Leckerli..."

    "Testimonials about her macros have inspired me to find out what that means. All I know is that if "macro" is what Funny Fish shoots, then "macro" means one helluva good foto. Seriously, Inspiring."

I never even imagined back than that Fishy will be the one who will make me love macros, who will make me smile, who will let me watch her becoming so brave to shoot people and be so briliant in it, who will start to experiment and proove that she can be everything she wants to be, who will let me inside of her soul and be so dear and supportive friend! Bless you fish for giving me Fishy!"

    "Funny Fish (Fishli) is a talented photographer with a wonderful and intelligent eye.
    Her macros are flawless.
    Fishli's views and 'use of colours' are astounding. Her approach is direct yet sensitive. Many of her photographs bring a smile to my face and I perceive them as gifts. A good portion of my "favourites" is by Funny Fish! I'm looking forward to many more!"

    "Fishy sees thinks differently. Her macro lens creates a world where insects are as giants and the petals of a flower form abstract landscapes where pollen are rocks and bolders. She creates art from a broken chain-mesh fence and sees beauty in the vapour trail of a speeding jet. He pictures have gravitas, depth, they please the the eye and fire the mind. Ladies and Gentleman... I give you Funny Fish."
