I found this unique spot in the summer and I really wanted to shoot a snowboard picture there. I told Xaver Hoffmann about the spot and he was also fascinated. My idea to shoot in heavy snowfall wasn't going to be easy, as it only snowed once in this spot last season. So there was pretty much just a one-time chance to get this shot.
I used two big Elinchrom strobes in the background to light up the snowflakes and create a ‘white wall’ where I could capture Xaver’s silhouette as he jumped. To get some light onto the dish, I chose a 4-second exposure time to get some light from the moon.
Overall, I'm pretty happy that we made it there that day!
I grew up in Munich, close to the Bavarian mountains, and it is those mountains that have always played a major role in my life. Being outside with my friends was always the thing that motivated me most, be it as a snowboarder back in the days or nowadays as a photographer.
I've never studied or learned photography but I was so impressed and fascinated, how one single image can describe a whole scene, a whole day or even a whole trip. This power of an image caught me straight away and passion became profession. I've finished my university for being a teacher and then went all in - All I wanted to do, is to shoot and create.
The biggest influence on my style of shooting comes from outside the action sport scene. I love to get impressed by creative work from landscape-, architecture- and fine-art-photography. But for me, this was always a little bit too boring to shoot, so I tried to combine those genres with action sport and that's where I found my true love for what I'm doing. Walking through life with open eyes and seeing possibilities.

The latest technology for extreme definition
The characteristics of the razor sharp ultraHD Photo Print are exhibited perfectly under acrylic glass. The light, shatterproof material enhances the appearance, making the colours and depth really pop. The 3 mm aluminium Dibond backing consists of two layers of aluminium sandwiched around a polyethylene paper core. This completes the overall look while providing additional stability.
1 . Glossy acrylic glass, 2 mm (1/16 in.) thick
2 . Photo print with shimmering look & silicone sealant
3 . Sturdy aluminum Dibond backing
With the ultraHD Photo Print Under Acrylic Glass, WhiteWall enables you to emphasize even the smallest details in your photo. Providing the source’s image quality is high enough to begin with, the ultraHD Photo Print remains precisely detailed – even in large formats and when viewed up close. The special development process results in completely realistic images that rival natural sight and the retina’s ability to bundle visual information into a single experience. WhiteWall achieves this level of realism through a combination of state-of-the-art technology and excellent image optimization software that analyzes images and refines image files specifically for this process. In an ultraHD Photo Print Under Acrylic Glass, the contours and details are more powerfully expressed.
Depending on format: two pieces for a horizontal edge length of 26-50 cm, around all edges for larger sizes.
