Hi! I’m Maike, a 32-year-old photographer from Germany. I live for early mornings when the world is still asleep, snow-capped mountains make me tremendously happy, ferns are my favourite plants out there, and I like watching the sun-rays dance underneath the oceans surface.
How it started
Aotearoa, New Zealand is my home away from home and I get daily doses of Fernweh just thinking about it. The land of the long white cloud also got me hooked on landscape photography and now I’m carrying my camera with me everywhere I go.
I want my photos to inspire you to get out there and explore the beauty of our Planet. I want you to appreciate the way trees grow, the way the little ant works to support its colony. Because with appreciation comes caring & our Planet could do with a bit more love, don't you think?
Over the years I got to try different kinds of photography. Nowadays I feel most at home taking photos of nature, of people and for companies. It brings me joy to get to know and work with different characters, all of whom have their own story worth telling.
