10Photos says: There is not much to say about Bastian's images, they speak for themselves. Spectacular weather phenomena are his favourite subjects, which he captures in a unique way. With a drama and dynamism that sometimes makes you feel like you are in the storm. But his portfolio also includes gentle and atmospheric landscape images of captivating beauty, such as icy landscapes of the far north or atmospheric sunrises in fog. Auroras, astrophotography and geological spectacles such as volcanic eruptions round off his unique and fantastic work.
Bastian writes about himself on his website: "Weather hunter, adventurer and landscape photographer," we add, impressed: "Master of the natural forces".
