Fine portrait photography, beautiful art prints & inspirational book covers

I am a professional artist photographer. My work has been published and exhibited internationally and featured on radio and national television. I create handmade portrait photography and intimate portraiture for discerning individuals as well as for editorial and business clients. The resulting photographs are works of art in their own right. My photography for book covers and other creative uses is available for licensing through my representing agency. My work is also for sale as art prints. My artistic work often questions the perception of reality.

There is not much that can beat the combination of glistening snow and brilliant sunshine for breath-taking scenery. This photograph from February of this year is of the Austrian alps at Rauris in the Pinzgau area of Salzburg.

Over the last week, the elves at Wolf Kettler Photographer have been busy implementing an exciting new look for my website. Take a look, let me know what you think.

A frosty spring morning

According to the calendar spring is well underway – the vernal equinox occurred last Friday. I was sailing from Cherbourg to Poole that day. Compared to last year, spring is slow and late arriving.

A home-made loaf of sourdough rye bread, fresh out of the oven. “Brotzeit” is good solid, rustic (and probably out of fashion) expression used in Austria and southern Germany for what the British might call a tea break.
