After a really long weekends work to set up the structure, to get the design done and to write a few starting posts I finally launch my blog 'Blogging from the Bush  -  This and that about Photography, Wildlife & Conservation'.

My blog covers topics ranging from background stories of my work (e.g. a monthly series 'Behind the scene'), my opinion on events and trends of wildlife photography, insights into conservation issues, interviews with people who are involved in the photography business, news from the gear front and lots more. And of course not to forget plenty of my wildlife pictures. Keep your eyes peeled.

I hope you will like my stories, insights, news and pictures.
