Born in Wald am Arlberg, in the heart of the Austrian Alps, i got used to alpine environment already as a young boy at my grandfathers hand. Besides getting an educational background, i spent a lot of time in the mountains with climbing, skiing and taking photographs of course. In 1996 i took the step towards my own business and since then i have worked as a professional photographer with the main emphasis on landscape, sport/sportfashion and promotional photography. If the job allows i spend time in exotic regions far away from any semblance of civilisation in order to photograph special occasion and experiences. So far i have been to the Canadian woods, Norway, the North Indian Himalaya, Nepal, Tibet as well as the icy heights of Spitzbergen.
