I always try to think twice about the framing of a photograph and incorporate elements that are not expected." Biography: It all started 20 years ago with my passion for documenting and creating aesthetic images that tell stories. As an action sports specialist, I have been shooting outdoor activities all over the world, working closely with the best athletes in freeskiing, mountaineering, BASE jumping, kayaking, sailing and more.By accumulating a lot of experience in various challenging natural environments, I have learned techniques to shoot, store and distribute content from remote places, ranging from capturing the best shots to workflow management in production teams and content distribution both online and offline.I am Swiss, so my first natural playground was the Alps and the beautiful lakes we have, bouncing from mountain activities to water sports depending on the season. My inspiration comes from nature and unique lighting situations. I always try to think twice about the framing of a photograph and incorporate elements that are not expected. Silhouettes, shapes, shadows - my goal is to find different perspectives on any given subject.I like photojournalism a lot. Through my travels I look for good subjects, forcing myself to tell a story through a single frame. I love the challenge and try to take timeless images, being more interested in 'imperfect' photography - images that are suggestive and can open a discussion - than obvious shots. I love to go out and play - and if at the end of the day I have one good picture to show... I call it a perfect day! The Shot: The lower part of Mesa Falls in Targhee National Park in Idaho is definitely - KERALA, India - Saturday 1st October 2011 (2 Pictures)

Category: Experimental Category Finalist Credits: Photographer: Elias Kunosson Athlete: Fredrik Berggren Location: Åre, Sweden Camera: Canon EOS 1D Mark III Lens: EF50mm f/1.2L USM ISO: 200 F-Stop: 5.6 Shutter Speed: 1/1000 Flash System: none "Eventually I ended up in Åre, Sweden's ski and bike capital. This was about two years ago and I've been photographing ever since." Biography: I think I've always been quite an image-oriented person, being much more drawn to imagery than words. As a kid I used to look in magazines and dream of the places I saw. My interest in action and adventure sports started a bit later on, some time in my teens. My best friend and I were crazy about snowmobiling. We used to watch Slednecks movies and dream of one day being in one. It carried on and when we got old enough to get our licenses we took every opportunity we got to go out and ride. It didn't take long before we started making movies and taking pictures of each other, still dreaming about one day riding with the Slednecks crew. I remember looking at the images and movies in the summertime, dreaming of winter and snowmobiling.Then I went on to university, moved to a new city and kind of lost touch with both photography and snowmobiling. I studied for about a year and a half until I realized it really wasn't for me. I dropped out, not really knowing what to do with my time. I picked up snowmobiling again and raced sno-x for a while. And with snowmobiling also came the urge to document it again. I decided to take a few photography classes and did so for about a year.After I had finished, I decided to pack my car and drive around the country. I lived in my car for a couple of months, photographing everything I did. Eventually I ended up in Åre, Sweden's ski and bike capital. This was about two years ago and I've been photographing ever since. My dream is to one day make my living as a full time photographer. I pray for that day to come! The Shot: I shot this imag
