I am a self-taught freelance photographer based in the centre of the Alps in Austria. After graduating as an architect I decided to take a year off and focused on action photography, primarily snowboarding. The mountains in front of my house gave me first hand experiences and allowed me to spend every day in the snow with my friends, which resulted in a quick progression of my photographic skills.
In 2011 I turned my interest in photography into a professional career. As a staff photographer at Nitro Snowboards I was assigned to shoot their athletes and to accompany them on their journeys around the world. Photography gives me the chance to travel around the globe and my goal is to capture the sport by documenting landscapes, surroundings, or structures in which the athletes find their playground.
Beside the sport, I always try to discover new genres of photography to keep my work challenging and to enhance my skills.
