Olaf first picked up a camera thirty-five years ago. Since then his passion for “seeing” has become a lifetime journey with photography.
Widely known as a visual poet, Olaf’s unique eye and relentless pursuit of visual simplicity allows him to capture “superbly creative and aesthetically pleasing images.” The images, along with his writings, can be found at www.olafphotoblog.com. Discussions on seeing, creativity, inspiration, street and fine art photography parallel the images.
Olaf is a founder and editor-in-chief of the Medium Format Magazine – the only monthly publication dedicated to film and digital medium format photography.
Olaf spends most of his time writing and photographing in the field, usually exploring the side streets in big cities and less-travelled roads. He is a sought-after speaker and educator, leading photography workshops around the world. He is currently working on a series of books about creativity and his personal approach to image creation.
Olaf lives in Coquitlam, British Columbia with his wife Kasia, his son Olivier and their furry four-legged companion, Bailey.
Photography, reading, debating and writing. Love long road trips.
