I'm from Slovenia, where I've spent all 33 years of my life – most of which were spent on the slopes of the Slovenian Alps, trying to fullfil my love for snowboarding. Eventually, it turned into a career, as brands started noticing my freestyle snowboarding skills. Many injuries later, that part of my life subsided, but never really ended because I gained an interest in photography. The first camera I had was the one I borrowed from my dad to take pictures of my friends skating and snowboarding. Working in a steel factory to try and make a living helped me earn enough money to buy my own camera and some photography equipment. I've had a lot of luck to be mentored by Samo Vidic, one of the best sports photographers in the world, in my opinion. I decided to quit my factory job and make photography my main career at the beginning of 2021 and so far, this contest has been one of the biggest accomplishments in my photography career.
