Bio & Contact
My name is Philipp Rassel,
I am a passionate amateur photographer.
I'm also a graphic designer with over fifteen years of professional experience. I used to work in small businesses as well as in big enterprises, and I worked as a freelance graphic designer on my own.
Since my father, Pol Rassel, died suddenly of a heart attack on 1st of November 2018, I decided to get more in touch with his favourite thing: BIRDS! He was very close to nature and a birdwatcher. Among others, he was also a scientific collaborator for the National Museum of Natural History.
In loving memory of my father Pol Rassel

Well, the name of my website might be confusing a little bit. So the "shots" stands for the photos that I take, I don't shoot birds!
Another thing is the term "deluxe", which is not meant to be of "superior" quality, it's way more a wordplay, as I'm from Luxembourg. So it stands rather more for "from Luxembourg".
And that's as well one of the reasons why I keep the bird names in the TOPShots section in Luxembourgish. Believe me, they are not always easy to find out.
