    “ARIGATO”

    Super stoked to land my newest double page cover in Japan. Backside Snowboarding Magazine SNOWBOARDING MAGAZINE ISSUE 9 “20 TRACKS OF THE GREATEST RIDERS” Footsteps of 20 riders who established a freestyle history, “20 TRACKS OF THE GREATEST RIDERS”. A book that is edited in order to tell to later generations and can’t express enough through internet. As we mentioned in our issue 07, “BURTON, SIMS, AND CRAIG KELLY ── Freestyle Onkochishin ──” , we have already passed roughly half a century since snowboard was born. Snowboarding was born to ride ‘freely’, not to compete, it created a freestyle culture while snowboarders, who have been obsessed with its value and devoted…

    THE REASON ANNUAL 2019

    I dedicate my newest cover to my godson Jesse Morice Schuler. This was one of those days where everything came together perfectly … I hadn’t been riding or shot any photos for a long time as I had spent the previous 7 months travelling through Australia, NZ and Asia. I was looking forward to getting back to the mountain to spend time with my friends, enjoying the snow, without any plans to shoot photos – although I’d still put my camera in my backpack, because you never know when an opportunity may come up. Then I had some inspiration for what I thought would be a great shot, so I…

    What is in my CAMERA BAG?

    What is in my MindshiftRotation180° Panorama 22L camera bag? I was often asked which camera equipment I will be taking on this long travel journey. Usually, I was always pleased with taking photos with the Canon mirrorreflexsystem for all my projects.When travelling however, I wanted to look for something else because my 5D Mark3 Canon camera with all the lenses was a little too flashy, large and heavy to carry around as a backpacker. Alternatively to that camera was a mirrorless camera, of which there are different possibilities from different brands. Since I have already made good experiences with a Fujifilm mirrorless compact camera, and the new Fujifilm XT2 system…

    “WE LOVE EUROPE”

    COVER of The Reason Snowboard Magazine “WE LOVE EUROPE” Very honored to land my latest Cover of The Reason Magazine. Together with Thomas Kälin! On this sunny spring day, Thomas Kälin and I chose a special location in the region of Hoch Ybrig, which, depending on snow conditions, offers many possibilities. After a long and cozy hike we were introduced to this beautiful view into spring, onto the lake Vierwaldstättersee and to the central part of Switzerland. Close to this view-point, there was a great spot for a sunset-shooting. At the end of the session, Thomas was not satisfied with his handplants, as he could not capture a good action…
