At the age of 13, Severin Aichbauer (born 1982) discovered his enthusiasm for photography. Since then he has consistently developed his technical and artistic skills and finally made photography his profession in 2016. The patriotic and nature-loving Upper Austrian is drawn again and again to the Salzkammergut, Salzburg, Tyrol or Styria, where he captures the unique Austrian mountain world on his hiking and via ferrata tours. Aichbauer is also interested in sports photography, especially motor sports with the Erzbergrodeo in Eisenerz, Austria. One could almost say, an interplay of extremes. On the one hand, peace, time and breathing freely in the mountains - and on the other, speed and action-packed scenes in sports, where the trigger has to be pressed at the right tenth of a second to get the perfect shot. "Whether it's in nature, sports or people shots - I always want to get the most out of it. However, I can only guarantee this if I keep raising my level, reflect, educate and be critical".
