Photographer's Bio

I grew up in Munich, close to the Bavarian mountains, and it is those mountains that have always played a major role in my life. I was a semi-professional snowboarder back in the day, until I injured myself badly and I pretty much had to quit snowboarding for a whole season in 2003. In that time I discovered the pleasure of photography for myself.

I was fascinated by photos that could describe a whole scene, a whole story or even a whole day, in just one small moment caught on film. This fascination was one of the biggest motivations for me to start my career as a professional photographer.

Right now I work as senior photographer for Pleasure Snowboard Magazine and as a staff photographer for Nitro Snowboards. I travel pretty much the whole winter, always on the search for the best snow conditions and creative locations. I love shooting snowboarding in fresh, uncommon locations.

In my photos I like to show the viewers a different angle, something they normally wouldn’t notice, even if they were there at the scene.

About the Photo

What I like about snowboarding in the streets is that there are almost no limits when it comes to selecting spots. Basti Rittig is riding up the stairs, jumping over the rail on top and doing a wallride on the colorful building. I love the picture because it shows what you can do - and what spots are rideable - on a snowboard.
