I was born and raised in a small wine village in southwest Germany. When I was about 12 years old, skateboarding and taking photos with my dad’s Canon reflex cam were about my biggest passions in life. I was sure that either I’d become a pro skateboarder or a pro photographer. Needless to say, my skate-career didn’t go far. My favorite sports changed over the years but the photography has stayed!
Finally, at 27, I decided to learn photography as a profession. My time as a trainee was characterized with lots of food and fashion photography. Still, having a sports mindset I gravitated towards shooting pictures of all different extreme-sport genres when I was unleashed onto the world.
I am really happy to say that I earn my money with the best job on earth; who else gets the chance to work with interesting people all over the world at the most beautiful places you could imagine? And capture these moments for good!
