Welcome to my 500px.com Portfolio!
I am a passionate nature and landscape photographer. I love the outdoors and being in the wilderness.
Born in 1982 in Vienna I spent a lot of my childhood in the austrian Alps. Since then I always tried to spend as much time as possible outside, exploring nature.
I received my first camera around the age of 6. When I was 14 my grandfather gave me one of his SLR cameras. After a few years of mostly snapshots and photos of my friends on their skateboards photography became less important for me and I turned to videography. I spent most of my free time in front of the computer editing and animating all kinds of videos. Eventually my hobby lead me into the film industry. Right now I am working as a freelance unit manager for film production companies in Vienna.
With plenty of freetime and an increasing budget I rediscoverd my interest in photography. In the meantime technology had adavanced and so I bought my first DSLR. With growing interest and experience I soon started to want more. After 3 years I switched to a professional full-frame DSLR and a set of professional lenses and filters.
Thanks to my girlfriend I am able to travel the world quite freely and after travels to North America, Asia and Oceania I finally got hooked.
My love of nature, the possibility to travel and a pretty good amount of free time made me a semi-professional landscape photographer wanting to explore as much of our beautiful planet as possible. I hope to be able to show people the world the way I see it.
