Rolf Mauer is a freelance travel photographer, architect, urban designer and journalist.

His images focus on the character of places and architecture are acclaimed for their graphic quality, use of light and composition. For Rolf photography acts as a physical and emotional adventure. His work is always a journey, an exploration of the perfect moment. Rolfs interest in cultural scenes took him to Europe, Australia, North America, Arabia and spending days in many cities all over the world.


He travels the world to photograph the people, celebrations, icons, architecture, lifestyle and culture that make each country unique. When not on the road Rolf lives in Germany.


“My aim is to take photographs that capture the reality of a place, by shooting strong individual images that build on each other to create a comprehensive coverage of a destination, so that viewers get a sense of what it’s like to be there.

This website is part of my journey to see the world in my personal way and share that vision with you. I love what I do, as well as the people and places I photograph. Each person and every place has its own story.

When I’m not traveling, I dedicate my time to work as a architect and journalist here in Germany. But I do travel internationally for work, so you’re never too far away for me.
