Actually, we had other plans that day. I wanted to try something completely different with Bernd, but the problem was that the weather wasn't really what we wanted. It changed constantly and it was very windy. So we decided to cancel our actual plan and drove to his personal training spot to see if we could create something there. When we arrived at the spot, we wanted to cancel it as well, because the wind was pretty strong too. But we were both very motivated to shoot something, so we tried to find the window between the wind gusts. It took a while, but in the end I'm really happy with how the photo turned out and that we didn't give up that day. Thanks to Bernd for always being so motivated for my ideas.
About the shot
Born and raised in Gleisdorf, an idyllic region in Austria full of apple orchards, I have completed an apprenticeship in carpentry and studied at the Academy for Applied Photography in Graz, I took up work at the Blue Tomato Headquarters in Schladming, where I gained extensive experience in media work and photography. Meanwhile, as a skateboarder myself, I have found my true passion in capturing outstanding moments in skateboarding and other action sports. Still, traces of my beginnings in landscape photography are visible in my works.
I always develop my skills as a photographer, trying new perspectives and moving out of my comfort zone, always pushing forward.
Whether during extended tours through Europe, or at home in my own studio, photography is my passion and my profession.
