Photographer of the week Rainer Mirau
I was born in 1976 in Vienna and have lived since my early childhood in Baden, an idyllic small town on the edge of the Vienna Forest. In my youth, I often travelled with a backpack and a tent. Now, I am often on the road (preferably with my family) in my camping van in the Alps and in Northern Europe.
My interest in landscape photography was awakened by my first trips to Scandinavia. With my father‘s Olympus OM-1 and through studying various books by photographers such as Andreas Feininger, Ansel Adams or Fritz Pölking, I learned the rules of photography time after time. Spending time in natural surroundings regularly is not just recreation and inspiration for me, but is a necessity in order to lead a balanced life.
For me, nature photography is the ideal occupation, as I can thus live out my creativity and grapple with technology (that whole big toy!) and in the process, still experience beautiful moments in nature as well.
