Tirol is one of the hot spots for outdoor sports in Europe and growing up there has influenced my personal and professional life in several ways; like experiencing my first turns on a snowboard, my first climbing experiences, and pressing the shutter button on my first camera. Fortunately, I was able to combine all of these values in my professional life. After my economic studies and my earliest international marketing job in the outdoor sports industry for Burton Snowboards, I was in contact with photography regularly and instantly knew it would lead me into professional photography. I started my career as a professional photographer with the main focus in outdoor photography and I got the chance to work with amazing athletes and brands all over the extreme sports sector. In 2019, I got the opportunity to work for Leica Camera and I guess there is no need to explain my excitement about working for such an iconic brand.
“A truly great action and adventure image has to highlight an outstanding athletic performance in a breathtaking surrounding and be taken from a unique perspective. It should be able to stoke a spectator without any explanation.”
