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

During a trip through Norway in the late spring time, our crew passed this place with a pretty funny wind-blown-natural-halfpipe. We still have no idea how this pipe was created. Anyways, it was perfect for doing a handplant with a nice glacier background.
