About

markusjaisphoto.com is the website of Markus Jais.

I am a software developer based in Germany.
In my free time I spend a lot of time photographing nature and sometimes other subjects.
My main interests are nature photography, digital photography, cameras, lenses, Photoshop and Lightroom. I am also very interesting in ecology, evolution and conservation, particularly of raptors (birds of prey) and carnivores like Leopards or Wolves.

People often ask my about my equipment. So here is what I currently use:
