I got into photography when I got my first camera at the age of six. I started my education in photography at the Höhere Graphische, Vienna. In addition to my art-degree at the school of Friedl Kubelka I also worked for the photo agency Anzenberger.
I never imagined myself to be an outdoors and sports photographer until I started climbing myself at 22. Since then I have been in a constant quest for the most interesting light and atmospheric conditions to experience moments of beauty, drama and, above all, intensity.
Now my images are used in catalogues for international companies such as Salewa, Jack Wolfskin, Ice Peak and Edelrid, and are featured regularly in magazines throughout the world.
My chief focus in photography is outdoor sports such as climbing, skiing, canyoning, paragliding, base jumping, kayaking etc. I like to call my individual style ‘dynamic photography’ which is my way of expressing the constant tensions between the activity I am shooting, the naturalness of the environment and the originality I bring to my images.
