Ahoi, my name is Stefan Liebermann! I'm a physicist at the Ilmenau University of Technology, Germany and an international awarded landscape and night photographer. I found my passion for photography in 2015. Fortunately my family enabled me to visit countries like Venezuela, Sri Lanka, Cuba and Egypt since I was a child. My fervor for travelling was born. Because of my closeness to nature and my wish to understand its complexity I decided to make a degree in natural science. As a physicist with specialization in optics I have the technical knowledge about optical systems like cameras and lenses and generally in photography. I have the dream to travel around the world with my camera and capture fantastic moments in nature. Therefore I toured around countries like South Africa, Namibia, Italy and Spain. I love the beauty of nature and its phenomena. With my photos I want to share my fascination in Night Photography. By the use of a more light sensitive device as our eyes we have the opportunity to get sight into a magic new world. It’s a special kind of art because it’s not seeable with our eyes but it’s real!
