Stefan Hefele is a freelance landscape photographer from southern Germany. Passionate about nature, Hefele travels all over the world, aiming to capture the grandeur and beauty of varying geographical locations from the United States to Europe to Asia. In order to achieve the perfect photograph, Stefan often goes through extreme efforts to reach a location. Extreme efforts that are not seen in the finished photo. The result is a magical image of enchanted moments.
One of Stefan’s favorite locations is the state of Alaska: “The relationship to the cold has shaped me and I love the work in wind and harsh weather. Most of the time I live outside or in the car without having a real roof over my head. I like to feel nature with all my senses to create good photos.” Stefan Hefele is the author of several magazines for nature photography. In cooperation with fellow photographers, he published his first book in 2015.
