About the artist ...
Ralf has been a photographer since the early '80s, when he was given his first serious camera of the time. It was a 35mm film single lens reflex camera and he was hooked! Ralf attended classes to learn about composition, lighting and darkroom techniques. During those years, his work was a mixture of self developed black and white as well as some lab developed color.
Flash forward a couple of decades to 2002, when Ralf began experimenting with his first digital camera! It was a “point & shoot”, but he used that camera for many trips and adventures as he discovered the benefits of digital photography to share his mind's eye view on the world. Ralf still continues to carry a point and shoot as a backup to this day.
Currently, Ralf continues to attend various workshops and events to learn from and with others, honing existing skills and adding new ones. His current emphasis is on various types of portraiture and investigating more and more into the real estate and dental photography markets.
Ralf has learned and has said many times to aspiring photographers, "Someone once told me that your first 10,000 pictures are your worst... so get out there and shoot!" (Ralf's current image library is fast approaching 100,000 images... he's still learning and going to need a bigger hard drive soon.)
