Volker Meinberg, GMPSA/B
Volker lives in Hamburg, Germany and also in New York City. He used to be partner and business litigator with a major international law firm before deciding to take early retirement and finally focusing on his true passion - photography. He kept his competitive approach through intense engagement in international photo contests. By now, his list of successful participation covers exhibitions in more than 60 countries on five continents, with countless awards and a considerable proportion of prints. He also judges in international competitions.
Volker's photography education has been predominantly self-taught. During his many trips to polar regions, he understood the complexity of light and how to capture it in a profound way. Thus traditionally, most of his work has been nature and travel photography. With his presence in NYC, however, recent work increasingly focuses on street photography. Volker joined PSA in 2012 and earned ROPA distinctions in the following years. His GMPSA/B was earned in 2019.
