About me

My name is Sascha Böttcher and I come from the Heidelberg area.  My hobby is photography!  How this interest came about and turned into a passion of mine is actually quite simple. 

At first, I took photos here and there just like anyone.  Then my first digital camera changed everything overnight:

There were new possibilities and I started to spend more and more time with my camera.  Soon, taking a few odd pictures turned into

Photography

I love taking photos because a picture can say more than 1000 words. There is so much to express, and my passion allows me to do this easily.  

I enjoy turning photos into personal works of art which depict me and allow my creativity to flow. The challenges of this hobby are judging it right and being able to capture things effectively. Take a look at my photos and decide for yourself if I have succeeded in doing this…

I take a photo of everything which appears before my lense, I spend a lot of time out in the nature and around where I live. Put in the limelight in the right way and a true masterpiece evolves.

I would happily photograph living motives if I had the opportunity as I have the right ideas for this, too.

Have I got you interested too?

What else photograpy means to me...

Since I can remember I have suffered from severe social anxiety. This means I get very anxious around strangers. Public places, public transport, phone calls and most interaction are big challenges for me. In short, social anxiety restricts my life. That's where photography comes in. In the last couple of years, I've learned that photography helps me not to avoid situations I've avoided before. In the meantime I'm able to take pictures in a lively pedestrian zone or lay on the ground in public for a good photo.

Photography has also offered me new opportunities to confront my fears. In 2015 I had the chance to show my photographs in an exhibition. The problem was that I also had to present myself. Although it wasn't easy for me, I managed to be at my exhibition stand for a whole week, at least 1 hour a day, to talk to people and answer their questions about my work. It was one the biggest challenges of my life. But I did it, and I'm very proud of it.

Photography isn't just my favourite hobby, it's also become some kind of therapy for me. Social anxiety still restricts my life very much, but I have made more progress than I could ever have imagined.
