While taking some time off in Australia, Stefan Hefele discovered his passion for photography. After completing his training as a commercial photographer, he soon realized that he didn't want to spend his days in a photo studio. He became a freelance photographer specializing in landscape and architectural photography. For Hefele, discovering and experiencing the power of the natural elements is what makes landscape photography so interesting. He captures this fascination for nature in his breathtaking images. His photographs have been published in calendars, for example, by GEO, Dumont and teNeues.
