Markus is a semi-professional photographer, based in Ennis. He started his first experiments in photography in the early 90’s when he used to live in Germany but to gain money for a car, he sold all his gear and never bought a camera for many years.
After he was working as a car mechanic and later as an office clerk in the company of his father he moved to Ireland at the end of September 2011.
As this country has lots of beautiful places he started to take more and more pictures of its landscapes, ruins and other gorgeous places, first with his mobile and later on with a bridge camera hie bought after he was invited to a wedding.
Now he had a better camera and this inspired him to visit more nice places to get some captures. This was also a good chance to travel through the country and enjoy nature instead of sitting at home. But after some time he wanted better results regarding picture quality. This brought him to buy a used APSC camera and it was a big difference.
He improved his skills more and more and so he decided to buy a new full frame camera, some lenses, filters and other accessories. This was the moment his hobby became more serious and after he had learned more about various techniques, his dedication paid off. He created a website, registered his company and sold the first pictures from his online shop.
