I was one of the first photographers photographing and publishing the Seychelles in STERN magazine and later GEO. In consequence Lufthansa and Condor (Lufthansa charter) established weekly flights and most European magazines published my Seychelles pictures. It was also a good business to sell the images to the different travel catalogues. From late 1970 into late 1980 I also sold books and postcards in Seychelles. The government specially the president Albert Renee helped me wherever possible and also gave me free helicopters and other assistance. So Seychelles became one of my babies. www.michael-friedel.com...
