In 2015 I established the STROB-Galerie to satisfy the growing demand for high-quality Salzburg photos. Since then an ever-growing number of clients got delighted by my unique artworks.


My goal is to create fine art photo prints. A fine art photo print is an image that is both: artistically inspired and technically excellent. Technique without art is cold and uninviting & art without good technique prevents the viewer from enjoying the work.


For me a work of art is primarily the product of a person, not of a machine. For this reason, a photo printed straight from the original capture is unsatisfying. Such an image represents the output of my camera - which is no more than a tool kit - rather than the expression of my emotions.


While, as a photographer, I can to some extent choose the type of light, composition, lens, equipment and other technical aspects of the image, I have very little control over the artistic aspects of my work during image capture.

To satisfy my creativity I need to work on my photos after I complete the image capture. Therefore, the creative aspect of my artworks starts after the image has been recorded by the camera. This process can last up to 4 months!


It is then that I can infuse the image with the emotional content that I experienced while being at the location where I took the photos. 


To this end I do to the image everything that I deem necessary: I adjust colors as well as contrast so that it reflects the feeling of open, glowing light or of deep, mysterious shadows, according to my memories of the original scene. I also eliminate elements that I regard as visually unsatisfying or unaesthetic as well as any other unwanted elements.


On the level of image composition I routinely collage multiple captures (up to 30+ photos) into a single image. The goal of these collages is to expand the field of view represented in the image far beyond what a single capture can show.


After weeks of meticulous work the result is an extraordinary vibrant image!
