In 1999, on his second trip to South Africa, Peter started photographing wildlife. He did not get the chance to travel back for the next 15 years, so he photographed local wildlife close to his hometown of Dortmund, Germany. Although a passionate wildlife photographer, he is not a professional - he actually works as paediatric radiologist in a hospital in Dortmund.
