Passionate about photography (mainly that of other photographers) and addicted to photobooks. Most of my site is dedicated to things photographic, particularly from and around Vienna.  VEEP of the RPS, but all opinions are mine.  Once a year, I dabble in the field of novelling thanks to ‘winning’ NaNoWriMo in 2016 and 2017, so I do have a novelling page or two as well under The Phantom Pen.

Pic is me with Hanno Pöschl.
