My name is Timo and I am a 28-year-old nomad originally from the southern alps of Germany (currently based in Oslo, Norway). In the past 9 years I have traveled across 20+ countries, had more than 15 side jobs and became a self-taught, award-winning photographer.
It all started when I was 19. I was unhappy and needed a complete change of scenery. So, I solo ventured across the globe to Australia. I immediately fell in love with the freedom and uncertainty everyday had. Ever since then I have chased my dream to travel and not looked back, even if that meant camping at -20 degrees outside or taking the cheapest flight that takes +60 hours. I turned into an adventure addict chasing the unknown beauty of earth, be it atop a 3500m mountain peak in Canada or in the depths of the New Zealand jungle.
In 2016, after having acquired sponsorship in New Zealand in the best paid IT job I could ever dream off, while visiting family in Germany, I did a spontaneous trip to the northern parts of Sweden. The plan was to see the Northern Lights. I borrowed my dad’s camera and managed to capture the aurora! From then on, a long-lost love with photoshop combined with my newfound love of travelling and adventure piqued my interest in Photography. In fact, it piqued my interest that much that I decided against the IT job and continued travelling and taking pictures with the dream to one day make a living out of it.
In 2018 I moved to Iceland, in hopes to further craft my photography obsession. After a whole year of intensive studying, processing and shooting pictures 24/7, I placed 1st place in the 2019 annual International Photography Awards and silver in the TIFA. At the end of the year I decided to quit my night-shift job and dive fully into photography. Since then I have won Nature Photographer of the Year and Photographer of the Year in Norway (One Eyeland Awards).
I specialize in fine art landscape and travel photography.
