die Macht des Bildes / the power of the image

Photography is my hobby. Travelling is my passion - especially to the Philippines. The combination of shooting while travelling means paradise for me. All published photographs are carefully edited in photoshop where I spend more time then with shooting.

My name is Karl Fluch and I am based in Upper-Austria and I have vacation houses in the Philippines on Cebu, my major destination for shootings (for pics please scroll down). I shoot with available light as with studio strobes depending on the theme.
I don't have any financial interest in photography, it's my hobby only. My favorite subjects are people in general, portrait, models, fashion and landscape. If you like my pics and would like to model for me feel free to inquire a shoot. Please read more in detail on the 'shooting' page.
About gear - I am a Nikon guy as I grew up with it. My first Nikon was a F3. I saved hard to afford that cam as my intention was to aquire the final camera of my life... What a misconception being unaware of the digital revolution. The only thing which stayed the same since then is the full frame format.

Photography is about photographers.
A camera didn't make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel. - Peter Adams

My main house, with an orchid garden and an outdoor studio and guest rooms

My second location, mainly to stay overnight. It has an outdoor bathroom (meaning walls without roof) and a garden in a very early stage. It's located 15 min by motorbike from my main house on a hill.

This is after Odette, the storm which killed many trees and virtually all neighbor houses. My houses were strong enough to withstand the desaster.

View to the northern part of the lot from the main house in Jampang - the area is planned to be a syntropic garden
