Markus Gültzow

Hello and welcome to my page! 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 nature and people but soon reached the limitations of a point and shoot camera and invested in my first Nikon SLR gear. What started as a hobby to capture my travel and life experiences has quickly become my passion and an important part in my life.

My photography is diverse as is my background. Born in the former GDR, I call Rügen, a beautiful island in the baltic sea, home. Being young and unappreciative of nature I left Rügen to explore the world and make a living in the Tech Industry. For the passed 13 years I have been living in Bali, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dublin, Berlin and most recently moved to Singapore. My travels and many years of living abroad has teached me to see the world with open eyes. But as most of you know, living in a concrete jungle can also be extremely stressful and demanding on your body and soul. Landscape & nature photography has helped me to balance my hectic day to day life and together with my wife and biggest supporter - Caroline, I am exploring the world and documenting nature's adventures with my camera.

I use my blog and Instagram account as an open forum, in many respects, with the intention to meet and work with photographers around the world. Feel free to connect Rediscover Nature with me.
