I live, work, eat, drink, sleep, and enjoy the good life in Berlin Germany.
My Camera is a Canon 5D MkII, shooting mostly RAW for digital tweaking afterwards. I also make frequent use of the Urbexer's 3rd eye, the Canon 16-35 wide angle. I also use a Canon G9 which takes great pix, has a fast lens and makes great low light exposures which suits my budding hobby of Concert Photography.
I've also been bitten by the URBEX Bug, exploring and photographing old, abandoned, derelict and sometimes forbidden places of the past. There is a certain "high" in being lucky enough to visit places where time has stood still for decades, moving through history, capturing the natural decay of a place.

"The Urbexer takes nothing but pictures, leaves nothing but footprints"
