|About the Artist:
Hello, I am a self - taught Wildlife, Natur- and Travel Photographer from Germany. My main goal is to produce a photograph that tells a story. I am focused to capture wildlife in a very specific moment, for instance such as animals eating, fighting or in other actions, revealing their secrets and stories. "It's magic when you discover the unforeseen, the nature as it is. Much time, good instincts, perseverance, care, and patience are required to create that special moment."
I grew up in East Germany and I started to take pictures, when I was 10 years old.
"I received a typical old-fashioned East-German camera and at that time it was just about taking any pictures that came along. These pictures have been only in black & white. When the wall came down, I was 14 years old. It wasn't until then, that we were freely allowed to travel."
I started my education in the hotel business and have worked in several hotels in Germany and the UK. I hold a bachelor degree in hotelmanagement (Level 6 of the European Qualifications Framework ( GQF & EQF).
I also have worked in the tourism industry, which allowed my desire for travelling to grow, becoming an international certified tour guide.
I hope my photographic work will inspire others to appreciate and respect nature and to acknowledge the importance to protect wildlife and conserve it's natural environment.
Even though my work has not reached my best hopes yet, please enjoy the efforts displayed and please feel free to visit my website http://www.ramonaheiner.com.
