Born in Munich in 1968 Bernd Römmelt has worked as free-lance photographer and travel journalist since 2001. The focus of his work is located in the Alps and in the far north of this world. He always tries to work theme-related. Once he has found a theme, it may occupy him for several years. His goal is to complete a project with a photobook which represents all facets of the respective theme. His main focal point is directed at working with special light atmospheres: According to him, you don’t have to travel far for this. The most beautiful motifs are right at your doorstep. Thus he can re-visit a variety of places without much effort and get his “special motif”. Bernd Römmelt has been awarded international prizes für nature photography.
