Mit dem Licht kommt das Lachen.

Mit dem Licht kommt das Lachen.

Welcome everyone to my support-page. For all of you who don’t know me yet, I am David, an independent photographer from Germany. My main focus used to be travel and nature photography. But in 2016 my life completely changed, when I decided to volunteer in Idomeni, one of the largest refugee camps in Europe since WWII.

Since then I have spent many months volunteering in various refugee camps on the Balkan route, in Greece and in the Middle East. I have witnessed the lives and daily challenges refugees are facing in Europe and in other parts of the world. I have seen fears and sorrows, but also unfailing hope and the joy people find in life despite all hardships.

For everyone back home, I have tried my best to share these experiences and shed some light on the situation on the ground through photography, social media and on my blog.

It’s the most valuable work I’ve ever done and I would love to continue working on humanitarian issues and create compelling and challenging photo documentaries from around the world now and in the future, in some form or another – for this I need your support.


How you can support me:


For those who want to support my photojournalistic work and would like to help me keep on doing what I do, there are four great ways:

1.) Spread the word. A free way to help in a massive way is to simply tell your friends about my blog and share my articles on social media.

2.) Become a Patron. Patreon simply is a crowdfunding platform where you can contribute a small monthly donation. Think of it as a voluntary subscription where you decide the amount you would like to pay. Of course you can cancel or change your pledge at any time. All contributions through Patreon are deeply appreciated as they will really help me and will allow me to work on future projects in a sustainable way.

3.) Make a one-time donation through PayPal. If monthly pledges aren’t your thing, a normal donation works great too.

4.) Subscribe to my Newsletter. The best way for a blog to grow a long-lasting readership is with email subscription. I know how overloaded everyone’s inbox is, so I treat my email list like gold, sending an email only when I have really important posts or updates to announce and of course, I would never share your email with anyone.

Thanks so much for everything. Your support will go a long way.
