Nature, wildlife and landscape photographer Frank Krahmer worked as a software developer for 20 years before making the switch to photography. Combining his love of watercolor painting and nature, he approaches landscape and wildlife photography not as a documentarian, but with a painterly eye, playing with vibrant colors, dramatic lighting or deliberately blurring part of an image.

Based in Germany, Frank feels that photography is like “painting with light”, travelling from the Congo to the Sahara, from Antarctica to Australia in pursuit of the beauty of the world's flora and fauna. Fascinated by extremes, he equally loves the chilly climes of Greenland, the arid deserts of Algeria, the blistering heat of the Nyiragongo volcano and the peaceful quiet of a meadow in spring.
