Gerhard Zwerger-Schoner

Born 1969 in the Austrian Alps, I recognized about the age of 19, that "being somewhere out there in the world" is what I want to focus my live on. My first camera I bought in India - a russian "Zenith 122 SLR" with a 60mm and a 17mm fixed lens. That time, I knew almost nothing about photography, except the fact, that I would need film rolls as well. ;-) So, nicely equipped I travelled half a year thru the Indian Himalayas and had the greatest time in my live.

Back home in Austria, looking upon my first own taken photographs made me known the hard way, that slide photography is....well, let´s say, quite challenging, haha! But at least I got a handful of shots I really, really loved. Realising that these represent unique views of my very own experiences was awakening something burning inside me what I never felt before. This burning thing came to fire and changed my live forever....

So nowadays I still live in the Tyrol in Austria, working as professional Travel Stock & Landscape Photographer and Filmmaker. If you like, visit me on http://www.zwerger-schoner.com
