Rainer

Rainer’s passion for photography dates back to the early 1970s. In his makeshift darkroom he developed black & white films and made prints. Ansel Adams became one of his heroes. In the digital era, however, he replaced the darkroom with the computer. 
His photographs have been published in more than 40 countries. 
Since the late 1980s Rainer is also a photo instructor and has conducted hundreds of workshops and online courses.
