Manfred (Manni) Kostner, born 1970, grew up in the South Tyrolean Pustertal, where he still lives with his family. At the age of 14, his uncle took him to the mountains for the first time - a key experience from which his passion for nature and photography grew. His hobbies eventually turned into a passion. Manfred prefers to travel in the Dolomites, which he explores hiking as well as on via ferratas and easy climbing tours. Of course, his Nikon camera is his close companion. Manfred Kostner's images are in international demand and have already been published in numerous books and magazines.
