I’ve been snowboarding for the past fifteen years, and it’s from this that my interest and career in photography have developed. Most of my work is based around snowboarding and its scene, which I have documented on and off for about ten years. My major international breakthrough came in 2004 with the cover of the Transworld Snowboarding Photo Annual. Since then, I have worked with various magazines and companies, including Transworld, Snowboard, Pleasure, Onboard, Methodmag, Oakley, Whiteout, K2, Burton, Helly Hansen, and more.
In my photographs, I try to balance creativity with clean graphical lines. I usually find a simple composition that brings out the rider and tells the right story. This way I aim to create photos that are aesthetic and comfortable for the eye, and at the same time true to the riders’ personal styles. I also try to add new components to my work to make it more dramatic, lately including different sorts of flash action and a lot of backlighting. I like, however, to focus my work on being unpredictable and ever-evolving. I am highly dedicated to learning and am always looking for new ways to develop my skills, as there are always ways to improve both technically and creatively in photography.
