Who is the Forest Bear ?

My real name is Thomas J. Schmal.
I was born in 1970 and live in Vienna (Austria).

What describes me best is "FBI" - fast, broad, irregular.
That's why my lovely lady gave me the nickname forest bear.

I am not a full-time photographer, i am an ENT-surgeon and phoniatrician (specialist for voice and swallowing disorders), but i love taking pictures. 
When i was 5 years old, my grandpa taught me how to use his old camera and since then i am addicted to photography.

So, look around and enjoy !

How can i get a picture ?
