As a photographer, I’m self-taught. I picked up my first SLR camera in 1993 and started shooting photos inspired by all those great photographers from Magnum. In 1998 I moved on to start shooting snowboarding, and I turned professional the same year. My photo philosophy is “less is more,” and my favorite way of making photos is with film and natural light. My areas of specialization in addition to snowboarding are documentary, lifestyle, portrait, and travel.
I am senior photographer for Snowboarder Magazine and team photographer for Head Snowboards. I submit to snowboard magazines worldwide, and my photos have made the covers of fine publications like Snowboarder Magazine, Transworld Snowboarding, Onboard, Pleasure, Snowplanet, Document Snowboard, Playboard, Fri Flyt, Freerun, Droppi, Deska Snowboarding, Snowboard Italy, and Board Russia. My work has also appeared in magazines like Sports Illustrated, Rolling Stone, Lodown, and Reload. I’ve contributed to international ads for a number of snowboard companies, as well as Arnette, Oakley, Dragon, Volcom, Billabong, Quiksilver, DVS, Westbeach, Airwalk, Sole Technology, Sweet, and Nokia, among others.
