Gold Coast, Australia
Kurt grew up in a more suburban surrounding until he finished school and eventually moved to the city life in Brisbane where he resided for a few years working in the engineering industry. Kurt now lives on the Gold Coast surrounded by beaches and waterfalls, which is far more inspiring to him than the congestion of bigger cities.
Kurt had always been interested in design and art but had no real interest to pursue any of these disciplines as a full time career. That was until a few years ago when the urge to travel spurred into the urge and need to capture his surroundings. Kurt bought his first camera exactly two years ago to document his travels in Europe. Since then he has photographed many countries, brands, bands and humans. Kurt's love and knowledge for photography grows daily and pushes him to want more and widen his horizons.
