Hi there and welcome to PETEOGRAPHY!

I'm the guy behind the camera and I'm happy that you have found your way to my website.

Photography has always been a fascination of mine. To be able to capture a moment with a technical instrument still feels like magic to me. When I take pictures, my aim is to create images that make people who are looking at them later feeling the same way I did when I pressed the shutter release. It is all about trying things out, experimenting with different light situations, perspectives and motives that I like. Hence, you will find different GENRES on my website. I’m not just a portrait devotee or a landscape enthusiast. I take pictures every time that I see something interesting.

In other words:

My pictures tell HOW EYE SEE THE WORLD.




I bought my first digital camera about 10 years ago. It was a small pocket camera, a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W170 (e.g. all the pictures of PARIS were shot with this camera) when I realized that actually, I yearn for more possibilities. At that moment, I decided to buy a bridge camera with a huge zoom range (50x!), the Sony DSC-HX400V (e.g. all the pictures of our SOUTHEAST ASIA trip were shot with this camera). I still like this camera because it's very versatile and lightweight and has a pretty good image quality compared to its relatively small sensor. It's a perfect camera for travelling.

But with the passing of time, I started to long for more creative leeway (bokeh [background blur], better ISO and dynamic range, etc.) That was when I decided it was time for me to move to the next level and to invest in an APS-C sensor camera.

In the beginning, I had no preferences or real knowledge regarding the system and I asked myself whether I should go for a classic DSLR (digital single lens reflex) or a mirrorless DSLM system (digital system lens mirrorless). I haven’t had any experience with neither of them, so I read tons of online articles about the advantages and disadvantages of the different brands and systems.

Finally, I went for a mirrorless system and of course, coming from Sony, I first checked out the Sony cameras in my range of interest.

The Sony α6500 seemed to be exactly the camera I was looking for, thus, I gave it a try when I was in the store. But when I held the camera in my hands, it just didn't feel right. There was no emotion, no positive feelings, no desire to use this instrument at all. I don't know if the camera was just a little too small for my hands or if the buttons didn't feel the way I expected them to feel, but I realized that this wasn't the camera for me.

However, the salesman proposed to have a look at the new Fujifilm X-T2.

When my fingers touched the edges of this camera, I had exactly the feeling I was looking for. This sounds quite dramatic I know, but seriously, the camera body just felt perfect in my hand and I wanted to leave the store immediately and start taking pictures right away. Of course, I couldn't do that because first, I had to safe some money...

... Eventually, however, I got the money together and bought the X-T2 with the kit lens, the Fujinon XF18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS.

I'm still very happy with my decision and since then a
Fujinon XF 35 mm - F/1.4 and a
Fujinon XF 50-140 mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR have joined the family.


Well I hope you now have an idea of who I am, why I take pictures and what I take them with.
