My name is Björn Engelke, I was born in 1978 in Goslar. Currently I’m a software developer, working and living near Munich, Bavaria in Germany. Photography is my passion since my school time in the early 90s.

Cats’n Rockets was an idea of melting my two passions into one Brand:

At the age of 14 my passion for rock music began to grow and never stopped. It began with AC/DC and The Toten Hosen on tape. At that time, you could borrow music tapes in the community library. During all the years passing by so many bands worth listening to were written on the list. Later I started also listening to the basic stuff like Rock’n’Roll, Rockabilly. So The Stray Cats came into sight, still one of my favorite bands though I don’t listen to them as often as I used to. This is where the Cat is from. So I try to be always there, when some cats of any kind are comin’ to town…

My second passion is about aviation. Also in my youngster time I was infected for aviation and it’s technic. Community library was again the cause for ignition. My main focus is on military Jets of any kind. I try to spend as much time I can afford on air shows or spotter days provided by any Air Force around Europe. So this is it about the Rocket.

In the beginning of this website I’ve shown both themes on one site. End of 2016 I decided to split both passions to different sites. So Cats’n Rockets is now only for concert photography while CR-Photos is dedicated to aviation and the other stuff I do. CR stands also for Cats’n Rockets but I wanted the best logo for the real cool theme.

I hope you enjoy the pictures the same as I do. If you want to hire me or have only some questions, don’t hesitate to contact me via:
