Rolf was born in Freising in Southern Bavaria, Germany and has been passionate about photography since his childhood. He became a full time professional photographer once he turned 18. Don't miss to visit rolf's german website: Rolf's Tier- und Naturfotografie.

He travels the world over photographing in remote locations where he captures dramatic impressions of nature, breathtaking scenery, and sensational animal pictures. He is frequently commissioned by governments seeking to increase travel and interest in their countries and has filmed and photographed in North America, South America, Galapagos, Africa, Europe, New Zealand and Asia.

He specializes in North America and has spent more than seven years following the seasons capturing images in Canada, Alaska, and in the USA before moving to British Columbia, Canada.

He is using analog as well as digital technology (he is very well known for his skills in digital technology as well as web development). His cameras include formats such as analog 35mm, 4,5x6cm, 6x8cm, 6x17cm, 4x5 inch cameras as well as 12/16 Mio PX digital Cameras.
For filming he prefers S-16 mm film, and for industrial work he uses digital video, either Beta SP Digi or DV.

He has moved with his partner Michelle, who originates from New Zealand, to the wilderness community of Port McNeill in British Columbia on the northern tip of Vancouver Island, where he has opened a fine art photography gallery.

Over past several years Rolf has worked on a freelance project, and succeeded in producing "never seen or filmed before" film footage of Killer Whales (Orca whales) travelling at high speed, up to 20 knots beneath large boats. This stunning footage will soon be available for the public.

His Whale Portfolios are known to be some of the very best available today!

His motto:
"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes" (Marcel Proust 1871-1922)
