The pictures below show a selection of my work. Enjoy! :)
The next two shots were taken at the 2008 Adidas Slopestyle competition in Saalbach, Austria. Timo Pritzel was the only rider to pull backflips over the biggest gap, the 16m "Macho Gap" ;) I was there to shoot sequences for the organizers but during the final run the evening sky produced such a killer light that I had to set up the big flash and have a friend shoot a single shot while I shot the sequence below.
The next photograph shows Falco Ruppert, a German downhill rider. I was on a South Italy trip with him and his brother Gernot in the spring of 2007, when we decided to check out the bike trails in Finale Ligure on an extremely foggy day. We had a bit of a hard time finding a good spot, but when we came to this little bump, I decided I had to take a closeup shot. It was a pretty close call because Falco almost hit me and/or the camera with his pedal but I think the result was worth it. In september of 2007 this photo won the first price in Germany's biggest sports photography competition for young photographers ("Wettbewerb für Sportfotografie", PCS Stiftung Berlin).
