About me

Photo: Youssef Amaaou

Good morning! I’m happy you are here. My name is Sebastian. I am a geologist and photographer from Germany. I grew up in a small village called Niederkirchen, close to the city of Kaiserslautern in Palatinate, where my passion for photography began at the age of eight.

My studies and my love of nature brought me further and further up north. I used to live in Tromsø, the heart of Northern Norway. Here I worked full time as a tour guide and photographer, mostly during the night when the Northern Lights light up the sky in shimmering shades of purple and green. My image galleries are therefore predominantly made up of pictures from the Arctic. I love the minimalist beauty of the north with its spectacular colours. Today I live in Königswinter close to the city of Bonn in Germany. At least once a year I return to Norway for work and travel.

On this site you’ll find a small selection of my work. Besides the more classical nature photography I have also become passionate about creating abstract art. I like to play with the small details in the cracked ice structures that form along the coast of Norway. You’ll find some examples in the gallery here!

Have a look around! And please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions. I am open to new ideas and joint projects. You can reach me by e-mail: info@fotoromia.com.

If you want to see my most recent works, have a look at my Instagram and Facebook pages.

Thanks for passing by my website!

Wishing you a wonderful day,
