My name is Oliver Wintzen, and I´m a freelance travel photographer from Hamburg (Germany).
My first digital camera I just bought about 14 years ago after a trip to Australia with a friend who was so kind to let me use his digital camera sometimes.
Since then I also began to travel a lot and both traveling and photographing still excites me every single day.
In May 2014 I quit my job in a life insurance company to travel for one year around the world. After that journey I was faced with the decision either to return to my old profession or to try something new. Something travel and/or photography related, of course.
Finally I decided to become a freelance travel photographer and build up a portfolio of high-quality travel images.
Since then I already traveled in the following countries:
Brazil, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Turkey
