about me

about me

I was born and raised in beautiful Dusseldorf on the Rhine in Germany. After primary school and high school, I trained as a travel agent. I switched from travel agency to the tour operator side and worked in the sales department for Meiers Weltreisen, later LTU Touristik, which is now named Rewe Touristik, and led the sales department for Jahn Reisen until family planning came to the fore. During my parental leave, I started my own business as a housewife and mother of 2 sons, next to the management of the „family business“, as a photo designer and photographer, when I lived in Frankfurt am Main/Germany. After moving back to Düsseldorf in 2014 I decided to stop working as a freelancer and made my business again to a hobby and creative part of my life.

My first photographic training began already in 1984 in the black-and-white laboratory of the school-based Foto-AG. The world-wide travels associated with my work as travel agent were the trigger for first experiences with the travel photography. As a self-taught artist, I continued my education in various fields and concentrated on travel and sports photography and all-round photography in combination with web design and consulting for medium-sized companies.

I have been running various blogs since 1999. I started during my time in the tourism industry with www.reisefotografien.de, which is now www.traveladdictrepoter.com, where travel reports and travel photographs are published. Later, more blogs were added.

On my portfolio page www.fdts.de/blog is my main blog and information about my photographic work.
