This is the ongoing journal of my travels, photography, experience with people, places and equipment.

 

     
 

"My overall goal taking part in the Rome Workshop, was to focus much at the light, which I can transfer to future photo and television news stories that I produce. And I got it.

The hands on practice and advice from Thorsten benefits both experienced pro´s like my self, and amateurs who wants to step up a level. So with my tired feets walking around hot Rome, I now will go back and let the experiences and inspiration go into my photography works. You are newer to old, too experienced or (especially) too good to learn."

"I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for your review of the Leica Q. I'm considering coming to Leica from a Fuji x100 and found your review balanced and informative. For a relative beginner like me the level of detail was very useful and your wide range of sample pictures were a great help. Thank you again."

My new morning ritual in Hollywood is to go on the rooftop before the sun starts to heat up the city. Here I read a chapther or two in my Jay-Z bible Decoded while zipping coffee and smoking my morning cigarettes. Leica M 246 with Leica 75mm Summilux-M f/1.4
