2017_10 Grand Tetons Markus Profile.jpg

I am a global nomad who has been ‘on the road’ for over 10 years and has now is base in Berlin/Germany. During my tenure I’ve been living in Asia for 8 years and then moved to Ireland. I’ve had the wonderful pleasure of living in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Bali, as well as travelling through many countries such as India, Thailand, Philippines, Costa Rica, Panama, Northern America and many more countries.

My passion for photography started in my early 20's when I traveled for the first time to Indonesia. Equipped with a Sony compact camera I captured Indonesia's beautiful landscapes and people but soon reached the limitations of a point and shoot camera and invested in my first SLR gear. What started as a hobby to capture my travel and life experiences has quickly become a passion and an important part in my life. Landscape photography has been my focus at first but since my trip to Yellowstone in 2015 and encounters with Grizzly Bears and Wolfes (unfortunately without proper long lenses) I have slowly become interested in wildlife photography. In 2017 I returned to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park equipped with the Nikon 600mm f/4 lens and got since hooked to wildlife and nature photography.

I use my blog and social media accounts as an open forum, in many respects, with the intention to meet and work with photographers around the world. Feel free to connect with me and say hi!
