My love for photography dates back many years when I was a young boy. I got my first camera as a birthday present from my mum. The camera was made of plastic, basically a great toy.

Coming from a family of hobbyist painters, photographers and filmers, I very soon got in touch with framing, looking for a nice spot and waiting for the right light to come.

But it took me years to find that out.

I’m a native Austrian born in Graz. I spent most of the last decade on the seaside in Croatia and Spain. I’m a 100% self taught photographer, on Canon. I had a previous career as a DJ who played in all kinds of clubs and bands, I still like to go with the flow and keep the groove.

I was a windsurf freak always looking for wind. I’m a beach boy. I really like swimming, play tennis and golf. I often need to walk or hike on top of a mountain.

I love to chase the light, waiting for the right moment. I can be very patient. I photograph with all my senses literally driven from one point to the other. I like to be in the middle of the action. I must feel it.

I did a bit in graphic design, a lot in promoting events and produced numerous videos. I’m working part time as head of PR and Marketing for Springfestival in Austria.

I run a blog called
