When asked where I prefer to be, where I feel at home, the answer is crystal clear – in nature, in the mountains, in the open air. The answer to the question of what I like to do is a little harder for me.
As a photographer, I love to take pictures – that’s also crystal clear. But I also like to take the whole preparation for a photo shoot into my own hands. Location and model scouting support me considerably in my work to capture nature and human beings in action. I found climbing very late but, today I can not imagine a life without towering cliffs, the light play from the early morning until the approaching night.
Although I do not always hang on the wall to take photos of gifted climbers, but rather use the photo studio of alpine nature to perfectly place people in the mountains of the scene.
For 12 years now, it has been driving me to the mountains of the world and my beloved home of Austria. I learned the profession from scratch. During my diploma thesis – in the Arctic, on the Polarstern – I really discovered the importance of the movement for me.
I got my first camera from the parents at the age of six. Since then, photography has taken a firm grip on me – it has lost nothing of its fascination to this day. With eye and lens, I capture irretrievable moments in the nature of the mountains – for eternity.
