About me


I am very glad to join the fotocommunity, hopefully I can find some interesting members who see photography as a means of self-expression, maybe art and a great way to see the world.

A professional I am not. I believe it was the great American photographer Alfred Stieglitz who wrote that ...'that only the true amateur has the personal freedom to express himself without any restrictions...'

I was born in Germany but live now in Taiwan for 15 years. In 2007 I rode by bike (my other passion) from Los Angeles to San Francisco, cycled Wine County. America is a great country, I met there so many kind people. Unfortunately is has lost its direction somewhere...

If interested you are welcome to share a fruitful discussion of my pictures, I am looking forward to any suggestions to make my photos more interesting.

Please enjoy,

    Hi there Gerhard, welcome to Fotocommunity! :-)
    Fotocommunity is The place where beginners, amateurs and professionals can share their passion for photography.
    You can view pictures from others, upload your own and exchange comments with people around the world, and you can discuss or ask about anything you might want to know about our common interest.

    At this address you can find a tutorial for new members, and I recommend you take a look at it. It helped me a lot when I joined:

    You can also get lots of information in our online-help.
