“Photography for me is not just a means to an end – it is like a “second” mother tongue. It is a language in which I can visually write and express my view of subjects.”

Stefan Hefele is a freelance landscape photographer from southern Germany. The trained commercial photographer lives there with his family in the little town Schwabmuenchen. From his homebase he travels all over the world.

His weakness for Nordic landscapes is hard to miss. But his heart also beats especially for the landscape on his doorstep. The Alps, the Allgäu and the Bavarian countryside immediately outside his doorstep offers plenty of creative freedom.

With the prestige project “Mountain 2016”, he can call an XL Calendar from GEO his own. Stefan Hefele is the author of several magazines for nature photography.

Several months ago PI Photography and Fine Art rolled out with a new series of blog posts called Photographer in the Spotlight. For a full week we will showcase the bio, artist statement and seven images of a selected landscape and nature photographer’s work that we found most interesting. Our hope is that our audience not only sees the beautiful work created by these passionate photographers but also learn a little about the artists behind the pieces. There are so many wonderful photographers in the world and a lot of the time we only see the photograph, not the artist.  So we thought it would be nice to show appreciation for the artist, for their dedication to their field, and share some of their work along the way.

Think about it, if it wasn’t for the artist then there would be no art to admire and honestly, life would be pretty boring without it! So show your appreciation to them for spicing up your life and showing you their beautiful perception of the world. Share their stories and captivating work for others to experience.
