jcw_3411-011I was always interested in birds. Even as a little child my parents had to watch birds with me….. 😉 My interest for photography came a bit later, but rapidly. Like most guys I also started with a small Point and Shoot camera and shot mostly in Zoos. However, I really wanted to get more and especially rare  domestic birds here in Germany. So I got myself my first digital SLR Camera. A Canon 20D together with a 100-400mm lens. Well, that still wasn’t really it and in Summer 04 I made the big step and bought a 500mm lens and a professional camera body (1D Mark IIn). I am still using that camera and I am really happy with it. My main interest are small songbirds and so it was only a matter of time till the wish for the one and only wildlfe lens grew inside me. The EF 600 L IS 🙂 Needless to say that I couldn’t resist this wish…..

This is also that little baby you see on the pcitures. 

Well, that was a bit techy and more for guys who are into photography. Now this is the version for normal people. 😉  

I am really crazy about birds, run around with a really big and heavy lens and do crazy stuff like…..crawling through the mud…standing with chest waders in the Pacific at 3°C….climbing up steep mountains…..and more 😉 The ones of you who thought it’s just sitting around a waiting for birds are really mistaken….bird photography is fun, action and excitement, however, knowledge, patience and a good eye are very helpful 😀

Cheers !
