Jakominiplatz

The Jakominiplatz is one of the most important public transport centers of Graz. Tram lines meet here as well as it is the starting point of many local and medium distance bus lines. It is indeed a very busy, sometimes seemingly chaotic, ever changing colorful…

Balcony door portraits

Light quality is extremely important to a photographer, just like snow for an Inuit. We have  countless names for the different types of light while any average people would only call them “strong” or “weak”. The amount of light we get is very easy to…
