Rudiger Wasser photography

I am based in Byron Bay, Australia. My experience goes back to the days of film, black & white, colour slides and the dark room. These days I work in digital and Lightroom with the fabulous Fuji X-T2, X100S and X-E1 as well as Nikon D750 equipment in full frame format. My photographs are a result of observing the world and people around me, loving art and seeing the little moments that are so surprising and unique, and capturing the here and now – there and then – a personal observation and capture of the human experience.

Photography is a unique and challenging art medium. When taking photographs my focus is on content, timing and design, without regard to specific technique or genre.

With few exceptions, the photographs on this website are not posed, artificially created or physically altered.
