Currently roaming planet earth (and taking photos of course)
Hello to whoever is reading this!

My Name is Niklas Siemens and I am 20 years old. I was born in Berlin, Germany but now live in Linz, Austria. I went to High School and just finish to work as a paramedic due to the Austrian civilian service. Now I am travelling a lot before attending university.

I started to photograph when I was 14 years old. At the beginning I just edited holiday pictures my dad has taken using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. But then I tried to make photos by myself too after my father bought a DSLR. I quickly improved my photography skills with learning-by-doing as I have most things taught myself. There is nearly no week I don't make new photos and maybe I will work as photographer full time someday.

I am not only creating still images, I also do videos. Before I began to photograph I started to produce short-films with some classmates in a school subject called "media". We learned there how to make films, we made contributions for the school radio and we have been involved in the school newspaper. Filming was always the most interesting part and we won a lot of prizes at film festivals over the years.

The most of my work is published on my Instagram. Here at my website I just want to highlight some work I did in the last time.
