Born: Steyr. Raised in Mühlviertel, now living near Linz (Upper Austria)
Based: I’m based approx. 1 hour away from the beautiful Salzkammergut region. I can easily grab my canoe and get to a great lake for sunrise or hike a mountain for sunset.
There isn’t only one dream destination I’m dreaming of. I love northern located countries like Greenland and Canada.
Dramatic mountains inspire me the most and also rough coast lines.
What means „traveling“ to you?
I enjoy packing my photo gear and plan the whole trip with spots I would love to see. It takes a lot of time and effort but I enjoy it everytime. Before every trip I’m excited and curious if my expectations will be met. I’d love to see all spots at once but to really enjoy a country it takes time. To some places I would return several times to fully experience them.
Best experience while traveling?
I had my best travelling experience in Patagonia so far. After an exhausting 5 hours hike I finally reached my most desired view: Fitz Roy. I’ve dreamed to see this mountain for so long and I got rewarded with perfect shooting conditions. The hike was really exhausting but every step was worth it.
Plans for the future?
Enhance my skills in videography, improve my recognition value and for sure ticking off more countries on my bucketlist.
