The idea behind ImageTime is a photographic journey.

About the Author:
If you want to know anything about the author of this photo blog, meet or contact me on Facebook or Twitter (on both you will notice posts in German language too, though I know English well). Consider Google+, check out my “Pinterests”, my personal Flickr photo stream (and maybe my past, exclusively documentary Flickr stream which was part of a project from 2010 to 2011), Picasaweb albums, Panoramio pictures or my YouTube channel.

The first camera I shot with was a 35mm Minolta X-700 with motor drive MD-1 (3.5 frames per sec), a 35-135mm and a 70-210mm zoom lens (to be honest, I had some cameras before, in my childhood, but they were very simple). The X-700 was made from 1981 to 1999.
My first photography skills resulted from working as a stringer for a local newspaper (gazette), the “Glattaler”, and as editor for my school’s magazine (I still was a teen those days). Films (Ilford B/W), processing (C41) and prints were paid by both employers, I received some training and gained experience in all kinds of photographic situations, from football match to open day at the day nursery to a violent riot. I love photography ever since.

In 2002 I got a digital camera. It was good for snapshots. I continued to use the X-700 and attended a B/W photo laboratory course with it in 2003. In 2006 and 2007 I worked for a local newspaper again, the “Sihltaler”. The desk’s snug Canon something DSLR inspired me to get my first DSLR (a Nikon D40X), and the photo lab moved to the PC.
In 2009 my first smartphone allowed true preparedness with its 5MP camera and its internet connection (an 8MP model with an unlimited, fairly speedy data plan replaced it in 2012), and I started this blog that year. One snap, two upload, three – published. These always-in-the-pocket-cameras really rock… 🙂 So, of course I like to snap whatever (and whoever) calls for it. Whenever. And wherever.
