Working as a freelance photographer is one of the few jobs that are always varied. There is no other job like this where you have to be creative and where you can use high-techical gear to produce incredible images. Photography is not only a profession for me but it’s more a passion to me. There are so many different fields of photography you can be creative in and you will never get bored.

In this blog I will show you the fields of photography I am covering and what or who inspires me. Someone will ask why I do cover so many fields – the reason for this is that each of those fields inspires me and brings variety to my work. I also want to tell you stories behind the images that are always unique.


I was born in Vienna, Austria in 1976. After a photo contest in 1994 I received my first SLR and started shooting landscape and travel images. During my studies I was a freelance photographer for local newspapers and magazines taking portraits and reportage photos.

I was always impressed by images showing pure action and dynamic of a situation. The work for an online sports media company in Austria as a web developer and project manager helped me to get into sports and action photography and so I started with this kind of photography, manly shooting Rally, Mountain Biking, Beach Volleyball, Motocross and Triathlon action images.

Currently I am shooting action, lifestyle for different media as a freelance photographer, as well as nude images. In january 2012 I was asked to shoot during a concert of a new soul-rock-band. This gave me the opportunity to try how to handle in dark and difficult light situations. Since then I am booked for nearly every gig they do as well as for promotion shots.
