About Maike

A photo is a memory of emotions and thoughts.

Maike Descher is a 28-year-old, self-taught photographer from Germany.


Living in New Zealand made her fall in love with landscape photography and ever since she’s been portraying her travels to places near and far.

 Fuelled by nature she’s dedicated to inspire others through her photos to go and explore the outdoors.

„For me a photo is not just something pretty to look at. It is a way to remember not only what a place looked like when you were there. A photo also reminds us of all the sensations that come with, say standing atop a mountain – the cold, the wind, the exertion from the climb, the happiness. That’s why I take my photos, to bring back all those feelings.“
