About me

Aviation lends itself to reach for higher plains, harmony and beauty. At age 16 I was given a little box camera. As a fighter pilot I learned to broaden my field of view and attention to detail. As a corporate pilot I was afforded travels to many lands and continents. It was natural to pack my camera gear and look for the perfect “shot”, be it looking for the ideal waterfall, the most vivid sunsets, or the abstract way of looking at the Eiffel tower. Sceneries are my first love, yet, people too, tell a big story in just a fraction of a second.
For years I have favored the Canon SLR as my first weapon of choice. It is natural for me to want to be at the forefront of technology. Thus going into digital work was easy and welcomed.
My hobby is now graduating into a full time profession, I now have ventured into commercial photography. “Wandering Win” a photographer friend of mine has called me. So you’ll see me on top of mountains, below cascading waterfalls, on the sea or where ever I find the need to preserve the beauty of a fleeting moment so others can enjoy what I had the luxury to observe. (EOS 10S, EOS A2E, EOS 3,) EOS 10D, EOS 1D MARK II
EF 16-35 2.8, EF 28-70 2.8, EF 70-200 2.8, EF180mm f/3.5 Macro, EF180mm 1.8.

    It's a pleasure to have you among us. I stumbled unto you when admiring your Hummingbirds. Super shot.
    Each spring, I look forward to these little warriors to flutter about my feeders.

    Hallo Winfried,
    viele Grüße von einem "Jungspund" der Sheppard AFB Klasse 89-05.
    Wenn ihr nie eine Kamera mitnehmen durftet, wie sind dann die Aufnahmen mit den T-38 entstanden *grins*? Das Mitführen einer Kamera war bei uns auch verboten...:-).
    Wie Du siehst, es hat sich nichts verändert.
    Weiterhin viel Spaß in der FC und man liest voneinander.

    Viele Grüße aus Bayern,
