I was dreaming of visiting this city for such a long time.
For me, Lisbon is a perfect mixture of many beautiful Mediterranean cities. Its picturesque viewpoints [miradouros], traditional Portuguese melancholic music [Fado] and narrow cobblestone streets with houses covered in tiles [azulejos] create the unique Lisboa experience.
Here are a few recommendations for you while visiting the city: Mercado da Ribeira (food court bringing together the city’s favorite food shops & restaurants), Embaixada in Príncipe Real (moorish-designed building with concept stores & restaurants), Pharmacia (very cool pharmacy inspired restaurant), Claudio Corallo (quality chocolate & espresso), Noobai Café in Bairro Alto (one of many rooftop bars in Lisbon with relaxed atmosphere). Make sure to visit Alfama for the most beautiful miradouros, Bairro Alto, Chiado, Príncipe Real and Belém (for the one and only Pastéis de Belém).
Have a look at some snapshots I took while traveling the beautiful city of Lisboa.

I travelled to a land far, far away. And it still feels very unreal. After a 24 hour flight you arrive on the other side of the world – Australia.
Life along the coast, endless summer and easy friendliness. Australia is a country blessed with natural wealth and, not surprisingly, happy people.
My highlights of this very special trip: taking my first surf classes in Manly, snorkeling and seeing turtles on the Whitsunday Islands, going on a 4WD tour on Fraser Island and soaking up the sun while eating the best sushi in beautiful Noosa. And on top of that, I was happy to see old friends and make new ones.
After returning, Australia does not feel that far away anymore.
Here are some photographs I took while traveling along the East Coast.

As the year end comes closer, I am reflecting on 2014 and the fourth year of my photography journey.
While collecting the highlights of this year, choosing from different editorial and portrait shoots, I always remember how everything has started.
Here I am again, saying THANK YOU. Thank you for your continuous support. It surely contributes to my development as a photographer.
I am happy. Why?
I created wedding inspirations together with THE WINDOW team
I shot campaigns for NOTABAG
I got INSPIRED
And finally, I photographed couples in LOVE

Help Portrait is the simple idea of making people happy by taking their portraits. Moreover, by taking pictures we are giving those in need a day of joy by showing how beautiful and special they are.
This year we dedicated our time to the teenagers and kids from the organization “Hilfe für krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt”, supporting children with cancer.
In contrast to the last years, this time we concentrated on a smaller group. This is how we started in 2009. We had time to talk, to ask questions, to get to know each other.
I would like to thank all these special people who helped us organize Help Portrait Frankfurt 2014. I am happy to see your faces every year and to know that we are creating something beautiful year after year.
Thanks to our photographers, make up and hair stylists, volunteers, and friends & family for making our Help Portrait day in Frankfurt again a great experience! Here are a few impressions of the day.
