Welcome to my website!

My name is Olaf Dziallas. I am 38 years old and live and work in my home town Frankfurt/Main, Germany. I am a real estate lawyer, but photography has been my passion for over 20 years.

Capturing a moment for eternity has always fascinated me. What impresses me the most however, is the skill of some photographers to capture landscapes and street scenes of everyday life in a way that the viewer is fascinated by it and the mood conveyed of that particular moment stays with the viewer, even years later.

I worked very hard and for many years to attain this skill and perfection what makes a photographer who he is, and one needs the popular ‘eye’, the sixth sense for photogenic situations even before they take place and last but not least the confident command of the technique and the picture development. The numerous possibilities of matured digital technology in recent years amaze me: Digital photography allows the photographer to see the result of a picture immediately, as well as other features in photography such as panoramic photography or HDR technology in order to portray extreme contrasts which are impossible with a film emulsion.

I am presenting you with a selection of my most recent pictures on these pages. My main focus is my home town of Frankfurt/Main and also landscape photography of worldwide locations. You can purchase my pictures, of course. I am offering the purchase of a licence for use as well as the purchase and delivery of high-quality prints in the desired formats. Should you be interested in further details simply go to Shop, or send me a message via the Contact form.

I will be very happy if I can convey my fascination with my pictures to you and I hope you enjoy having a look around.
