Biography: I grew up in Munich, close to the Bavarian mountains, and it is these 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 pretty much had to give up snowboarding for the whole season in 2003. During that time I discovered the pleasure of photography.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 usually travel pretty much throughout the whole winter, always in search for the best snow conditions and creative locations, but last year I became a father of two awesome twin boys, so right now I'm a bit more at home than before. But the good thing about that is that I'm now even more focused when I go out shooting!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. I might use colorful flashes, different camera angles or tilt-shift lenses - always trying to capture something a bit different. On the other hand, I also love the documentary style; simple black and white documentary is something very real. The Shot: I had the idea to shoot a snowboard waterslide from underneath the surface a couple of years back, but I found out pretty fast that it wasn't as easy as I thought.
