Philip Platzer

I was born in Graz, Austria in 1979, and developed a passion from a young age for outdoor adventure sports such as mountain biking, surfing and snowboarding. Photography was a natural compliment to my outdoor pursuits, as it allowed me to capture the dynamics and emotion of the incredible moments I was experiencing. When I bought my first proper SLR camera in 2008, I was hooked. I honed my skills as an autodidact and by spending countless hours assisting for various fashion, advertising and sports photographers.
When I turned pro in 2010, I found a lot of excitment and opportunity in motorsports photography, which is still a big part of my work today. Having been in the photography business for many years now, my respect for the art form has deepened. I am constantly pushing my own limits, looking to capture truly unique shots, and fueling my passion for this incredible work!
