As he was injured a few times during the whole winter, Teo needed more video shots for his part so it was definitely time for him to go big! Unfortunately, he came a bit too short with a Backside 1260 and slammed really hard on his face and shoulder. After being knocked out for a few minutes we took care of him and took him to the nearest doctor.He couldn’t sleep the next night and got intense fever together with a horrible headache, so we had to take him to hospital in Innsbruck. They discovered straightaway that he also had a broken wrist and needed a cast urgently – it was a tough winter for Teo!BiographyGrowing up in the countryside in the middle of the French Alps I grabbed my first camera at the age of 18 – an old and dusty Nikon FE2 from my parents. I used it with black and white films to start shooting the decline of my teenage years. It was all about girlfriends, skateboarding, partying, painting walls and sometimes snowboarding – but mostly just goofing around and having fun with it. I started to learn printing photos in the darkroom which quickly became an addiction. At that time, school was not offering too much in the way of creativity, especially when you chose a mathematics speciality.So what could be the best excuse to travel around, meet people, make new friends, do some fun things, and still call it a ‘job’? Oddly, none of my teachers had that answer, so I had to figure it out by myself!Here I am 12 years later, living the dream with my different hats from Art Director to Photo Editor to Senior Photographer to Book Publisher to father of twins.
