About me[edit]


I'm a hobbyist photographer living in Berlin. I'm mainly interested in architectural photography. In real life I am a German board certified lawyer for copyright and media law. I've studied law in Leipzig and Rome.

I'd call myself a panoramic enthusiast. Buying myself a Nodal Ninja 3 Mk II and purchasing a PTGUi Pro license were some of my better ideas. At the moment I'm trying to learn how to create spherical panoramics. If you need help with stitching your own panoramas, please leave me a message on my talk page or write me an e-mail.

I've won the first place of the international Wiki Loves Monuments contest in 2016 with this view of the Berlin regional court and of course I'm very proud of it. You can have a look at all of my WLM 2016 contributions here.

I'm a co-founder of the Commons Photographers User Group.

Re-using my photos[edit]

The pictures I upload to Wikimedia Commons are licensed under a free Creative Commons-License (CC 3.0 DE or CC 4.0). However, these licenses have some requirements to be met if you want to re-use the photos (attribution is just one of the requirements but not the only one). I think that it's a matter of respect to comply with the license terms when using a photographer's work. However, it's also a copyright infringement not to observe them. Please read the respective license carefully before re-using any of my photos. If you have any questions regarding license requirements, please do not hesitate to contact me by leaving a message on my talk page.

Photo requests[edit]

If you need a freely licensed picture of a subject located in or nearby Berlin please write me an e-mail or leave a message on my talk page. I'll do my very best.
