Hi, I’m Maike!
I’m a German photographer that somehow ended up in Central California. My name is pronounced “Micah” – I figured you might be wondering. :)
I love the scent of pines, Berlin subway stations and horses and am happiest in any place you can find one of the three.
I’m all about honest photographs full of atmosphere and collect snippets of life wherever I go: mountains, llamas, giggle fits and everything in between.
One of my favorite, quirky quotes is this one by Roald Dahl: “It’s impossible to make your eyes twinkle if you aren’t feeling twinkly yourself.”
Let’s hang out and feel twinkly!
