Klaus started writing and photographing for newspapers, journals and magazines in 1975. After a BA with honours he wrote a M.Sc thesis about casuarinas. His first book was Huts of the High Country in 1982. It sold 14,000 copies and is still in print with a new cover and preface. Tabletop has published about 20 books, four of them for Alan Andrews who died in 2014. Klaus has written ten books, the last two on the south coast of NSW. He was awarded an Order of Australia in 2012 for helping to conserve and document Australia’s high country landscapes, oral history and built heritage.
