about the shot
"Wake the Glacier"

A crazy location in Hintertux, deep in the mountain and below the surface. The ‘nature ice palace’ is a fairy tale world inside a glacier and also contains an underground lake with -0.8°C water. Red Bull set up a crazy crew to realize the first ever wake action in such an environment. During a two-day production we managed to get a cool action shot of Dominik Hernler, who completed this challenging task like a champ. With a 6.5mm wetsuit, he didn't hesitate and was able to ride and turn in this very narrow location and under very difficult (AKA freezing) circumstances. In terms of photography, this was an extreme challenge as well, as we were facing extreme cold and moist and also very cold water. After more than three hours in the water I didn't feel anything below my waist and one of my cameras failed as well. When Dominik finally arrived and pulled the action it was also a matter of luck if I got the camera to trigger at the right moment. Such a relief to see the image pop up on my screen and get the shot. Right after this shot the camera shut down and didn't work for three days until it dried up completely.

about the photographer
Markus Berger

I am a commercial sports photographer based in Austria. My goal is to be creative and capture the essence of an athlete, sport, movement or moment. I strive to put my heart and soul into projects and love the teamwork aspect of a shoot. My background is professional sports and over fifteen years working in the commercial sports industry. Understanding the athletes’ perspectives and at the same time the sports marketing side enables me to connect both worlds. The goal is to achieve credibility and impact at the same time. In a world that’s flooded with imagery, it is more important than ever to be personally connected to projects and inject that extra personal touch to make stories interesting and believable. Unique ideas and creative approaches growing from personal beliefs lead to a credible outcome that is loved in return. After years of working with sports brands, agencies and top athletes around the globe, I learned not to take anything for granted. In a fast-paced world where humanity and kindness often get way too short, I want to focus on projects connected to people and their stories.
