I wish you a warm welcome to my homepage "Dejavue ". As a “Déjà-vu” experience (in English "already seen") is defined as a psychological phenomenon (qualitative memory disorder), which manifests itself in the feeling that a new situation was already seen, experienced or dreamt in the past.
According to surveys 50 to 90 percent of people had at least once a “Déjà-vu” experience, but mostly forgotten, after a certain time, where and when it last occurred.
Do you sometimes have the feeling, when you see something that you believe to have seen or experienced this already? Like, for example, images, moments or situations that you have apparently "overlooked", but would like to have kept in your memories? Unfortunately, as is so often the case, in this beautiful moment, there is no camera available. If exactly this happened to you, I would like to offer you my help with selecting Photos.In my photo gallery, I have a variety of beautiful snapshots from different areas of photography that will give you a comprehensive overview of my work and my services. Maybe your "Forgotten” or “Overlooked” momentous, that you want to retain in your memory or experience again, appears in my photo collection for you.“Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again”. (Henri Cartier-Bresson) “Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.” (Robert Bresson)
I have already passionately devoted myself, as a young youth, with analog photography. Like all photographers, I also made the move to digital photography with full passion and dedication, which was not difficult for me, after several years of experience working for canon as a customer advisor. During my years working as a freelance photographer I have made numerous photographs of different categories. These can be viewed on my homepage, which are divided into various subject areas. Please have a look into my photo gallery and be inspired by the images done over the past years for various private and commercial clients throughout different continents, such as newspapers, magazines and event agencies.“A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.” ( Eudora Welty)
“It matters little how much equipment we use; it matters much that we be masters of all we do use”. (Sam Abell)

I am available at all times for your desired photography orders or any individual requests that may occur on a personal or commercial basis.
History and art of photography
The first pictures of Niepce
The Frenchman Joseph Nicephore Niepce (1765-1833) is regarded as the one who could capture images first on a light-sensitive layer. He took a "camera obscura" to help, a long-known apparatus with which images of the outside world were projected onto surfaces. He was able to capture these images on silver chloride paper. However, they were not resistant to light and faded after a short time. Only in 1826 Niepce managed to produce the first stable image. It shows the view from the window of his study. With exposure times of up to eight hours, however, it was impossible to photograph people or moving objects. Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre (1787-1851), a successful theater painter, learned of the work of Niepce and was so fascinated that he became his partner. Anxiously, they both tried to find a way to shorten the exposure times.
Shorter exposure time and multiple removals
After years of trying, Daguerre discovered that a latent image by brief exposure of a Jodsilberplatte, that can be fixed by vapor deposition of mercury. Louis Daguerre exposed a photographic plate, but the process was discontinued because the weather did not cooperate. He put the plate in his chemical cupboard. When he pulled it out again later, he was surprised to discover that it became a clear picture. Something in his closet must have shortened the exposure time of the plate. He removed piece by piece all chemicals out of the closet and kept on putting a fresh photographic plate inside to find out which of the chemicals has caused this effect. In the end, only a few drops of mercury, that accidentally spilled, remained. That, Daguerre realized, was the riddle. Photographic plates treated with mercury vapors require shorter exposure times than untreated. He succeeded, after numerous attempts, to reduce the exposure times to four minutes in summer and 15 minutes in winter. Daguerre and Isidore Niepce, the son of the late pioneer, concluded an agreement with the French government in1839, which was given the right to present the so-called "daguerreotype" to the public. The Government considered the discovery so significant that they thought it would give a boost in popularity. Images that were created with the "daguerreotype", however, were unique. This problem eliminated William Henry Fox Talbot with the so-called “calotype”, paper - negative-positive process. Quality and brilliance were not comparable to the "daguerreotype", but it was possible to make multiple prints of an image.
The plate method
The procedure of Talbot had a low resolution and was grainy. The grain of the paper was always clearly visible. Frederick Scott Archer overcame this shortcoming in 1851 with his "wet collodion". The name comes from dissolved cotton ( collodion ), which was used here. This one wore the light-sensitive material (silver halide) on glass plates. The resolution was significantly better, but the effort was enormous. Collodion is a colorless, sticky mass that hardens quickly in the air. Therefore, exposure and development had to be done, before the material was dried. The next breakthrough took place in 1871 by Richard Leach Maddox. With a silver bromide-gelatin layer, he managed to develop a dry plate, which rivaled wet plates of sensitivity in nothing.
Small cameras and color films
In the first decades of the 20th century, the improved light sensitivity of the films made it possible to produce small and micro cameras. In 1905 Oskar Barnack had the idea of reducing the negative format and enlarging the photographs at a later stage. Ten years later, as a development manager at Leica, he designed the first miniature camera in the world. However, the First World War delayed development. It was not until in the 20s, the first Leica camera was ready, which was officially introduced in 1925. This was a viewfinder camera with a lens of 50 mm focal length, a standard which was later copied hundreds of times. In addition to the viewfinder camera, it was able to establish the reflex itself from the 50s. The principle: the light input is reflected in the viewfinder. This allows the photographer to see exactly what will later reveal the image. The deflecting mirror which projects the image in the viewfinder, works in triggering aside, so that the light beam can expose the film. Then, in 1936, the company "Agfa", was the first to develop a color film. Now almost everyone could make more light loyal Photos of the surrounding area.
The digital revolution
Over the time, the use of more and more electronics let the cameras become increasingly more comfortable. In 1963 the company, "Canon", became the first camera with automatic focus. About ten years later, it was followed by a fully electronic camera from Rollei, where aperture, shutter speed and sharpness could be adjusted automatically. Towards the end of the 20th century the entire photographic technique was then once again revolutionized by digitization. Now it was possible to save the photos not just on film, but also on digital media. This is cheap and simplifies the use of the image. It can be viewed directly and optionally deleted immediately. Image editing software facilitates subsequent processing, making it possible to fix bugs in the photo. Today, anyone can repair or manipulate his images using appropriate software. In addition, the Internet facilitates the global exchange of images, which is now available as files.
