Hey everyone and welcome to my website!
My name is Nicolas Armer and I’m a 27-year young photographer from Bavaria, Germany. I’m an Red Bull Illume Category Finalist and also an ambassador for MindShift Gear , Berg Outdoor and Kingston Technology .
Photography to me is pure magic. Being able to control the time just like you want to simply never gets boring. The neverending chase for the ideal moment, the long waiting hours for the perfect light … the endless hours spent in the most beautiful environment there is: nature.
Since my childhood days, I feel magically drawn to nature.
Therefore my favorite things to photograph are: outdoor, adventure, nature, landscapes but also reportages.
Before I started my career as a photographer I worked at a Survival-School in Austria and served 4 years in the German military.
Whenever I’m not taking photos I like to spend my time with stand up paddling, kayaking, hiking, bushcrafting and fishing. In addition to my nature activities I’m also a huge fitness lover – working out one to two hours every day is a must for me.
So in case you got interested in working with me or buying one of my photos for a personal print – just drop me an e-mail or give me call.
Thanks for reading this, have a great day!
