Our four Dachshunds Kluftinger, Bajazzo, Urs and Milhouse (from left to right), during a shooting in Wiesbaden, Germany. My friend Ina, owner of 2 of them and I, wanted an image of the Fantastic Four (as we call them). This is never easy, because Dachshunds don't just "pose" and do anything to please their owner. They just do it, when they want to do so. That's what makes it realy special, always funny and never boring with the little guys.

I started photography in 1994,with a Nikon FG 20.I loved textures, lines and geometry.I also trained other skills like painting, silkprint,collage.In 2009 with my first Digital Camera and my little dog Molly,I started with Photography again,but I had to learn that it was difficult to bring a story into an image.Until today,I prefer the mood in images.Every good Photographer knows his gear very well and there is some technical perfection in every good shot.But what really hits me is the creativity,spirit and a certain mood of an image even if it is not perfect.That's what drives me until today.
