Jürgen Lobert is creating fine art photography & insight
I am a fine art photographer and educator, based out of Massachusetts, USA, born and raised in Germany. I am also a scientist with a Ph.D. in atmospheric chemistry and have been in the US since 1991.

I am largely a self-taught photographer and specialize in night photography, daytime long exposures as well as urban exploration (abandoned stuff), infrared photography and I do the occasional specialty modeling.


The combination of science and photography is both intriguing and fruitful. Night and long exposure photography require a fairly technical approach as well as intricate knowledge about the equipment we use, how to adjust settings and the scientist wants to know why. The technical mind makes this easy for me, but also allows me to teach it, explain why certain things change or why some common concepts are incorrect. I enjoy testing hypotheses, pushing the envelope of equipment and myself, and then tell you all about it. The combination of the technical mind with the creative eye of the photographer is what I offer here for you to experience and support.

I stay connected to the community by being an executive member of several camera clubs and I founded and organize the Greater Boston Night Photographers Meetup group. Between that and dedicated events, I organize some 40 photo excursions and workshops each year. I am also a lecturer, instructor and judge for regional camera clubs and conferences, and an instructor at the New England School of Photography (NESOP). My artwork is in the permanent collection of the Art Complex Museum.

Night photography is special! It is a very slow and deliberate type of photography that relays a profound serenity. I find peace in roaming the nights to create otherworldly, eerily beautiful scenery and to capture the element of time. Daytime long exposure photography is an extension of that, borrows a lot of the same concepts, with similarly peaceful outcomes.

I invite you to experience that beauty through my artwork and benefit from my instructional insights.
