Bjorn is a very well-travelled touring kayaker and his profession is photography and adventure journalism. He is based in northern Germany between Hamburg and Kiel, in the lovely region of Holsteinische Schweiz, famous for its lakes and forests. He regularly travels all over Europe to get to exiting photo locations, but also opens his back door to miles of Baltic Shores and towering old trees. He has written 9 books which cover outdoor sports in different ways. He says;
"First was my love for all kinds of outdoor sports activities. When travelling to new locations a passion for photography evolved. It took some time until I started my own business after finishing a masters degree in forestry and having different office jobs.
I am a passionate visual storyteller but at the same time a writer for outdoor sports for 15 years now. My work has been published in magazines like Kanu Magazin, Kajak Magazin, Trekking, Magazin, Outdoor Magazin, Ocean Paddler, Kayak de Mer, Paddle World, Nordis Magazin, Norr Magazin, Wind und Wasser Magazin, Foto Magazin, Four Seasons Magazin, Lübecker Nachrichten Newspaper, World Women Magazine, German Wings Magazin,and shown in many adverts from brands like Globetrotter, P&H Sea Kayaks, Werner Paddle, Kokatat Watersports Wear, Ortlieb, Hilleberg, Gadermann and many other publications. Most of the work was published in German language, with some in English too. From time to time I participate in photo contests and have had quite some success.
Most importantly I try to create striking visuals that embody the core of outdoor sports."
