I love teaching other photographers how to use today’s advanced cameras to photograph both day and night, as well as experiencing the quiet beauty of night photography in the field. Through my workshops, books, seminars, and one-on-one custom instruction, I can guide you through this learning process.
For me photography is a hobby and a passion that brings me closer to the nature and its miracles. By taking photos, I've seen places I probably wouldn't have seen otherwise, for which I'm very grateful.
Photographing the Milky Way has always fascinated me.
Photographing and editing the Milky Way fascinated me so much that I wrote an online course (in German) about it.

Name: Manuel Wagner
Manuel Wagner ist ein Astro- und Landschaftsfotograf aus der Region Pfälzer Wald.
" Die Fotografie ist für mich ein wichtiger Part meiner Work-Life-Balance, durch sie entfliehe ich aus meinem Alltag. Sie hilft mir, meinen eigenen Fokus zu setzen, die Welt aus anderen Perspektiven zu entdecken und das Verborgene sichtbar zu machen. Das Zusammenspiel zwischen faktenbasierten Tiefgang und Detailfreude gepaart mit Kreativität und Kunst, gerade in der Astrofotografie, fasziniert mich jedes Mal aufs Neue.
Meine Heimatregion, der Pfälzer Wald ist ein absoluter Geheimtipp für Fotografen. Durch seine einzigartigen Wetterbedingungen erlebt man häufig Nebel in den Tälern in einem der größten zusammenhängenden Waldgebiete Deutschlands. Hoch über dem Nebelmeer ist der Ausblick von den rund 140 Felsmassiven aus 250 Millionen Jahre alten Sandsteinfelsen unbeschreiblich. Ihre bizarren Formen und die oftmals darauf wachsenden Wetterkiefern eignen sich besonders, einmalige Bilder entstehen zu lassen."
