Rainer Gulbins began taking photographs while he was a student, and spent many years experimenting in traditional darkrooms. For many years he lived abroad, and has enriched his travel writings from the Sahara and the Canadian wilderness with his own photos.
In 2003 he switched from analog to digital photography, and has since devoted himself to the study of digital image processing. Rainer uses Nikon cameras and Windows-based computers to archive and process his images, while his brother Juergen uses Canon cameras and Apple Mac computers.
Rainer has translated photography books into German for dunkt.verlag, and has worked as a consultant on many photographic book projects. He currently lives in Munich, Germany.
