Wolf Paulus’ Journal


Hi there and thanks so much for stopping by!
My name is Wolf Paulus, I’m a photographer, hiker, hacker, and technologist, based in Sedona, Arizona.
This is my journal, where I share quick thoughts and ideas on technology.

INSPIRING VIDEOS
Many of the new concepts I’m working on, are communicated best through video clips or short films.
Take a look at some short HD films that I have created over the last few months and years.


STUNNING PHOTOGRAPHS
“Amateur Professionalism”, a concept used since 2004, describes an emerging sociological and economic trend of people pursuing amateur activities to professional standards. That pretty much describes, how I look at my photography work today.
If you like, take a look at some of my photos and the stories they tell.
