WHO WE ARE
We are two freelance photographers / videographers from Germany. Due to our longing for a life in the mountains, the enthusiasm for sports activities and riding bikes we can call the region around Innsbruck in Tyrol our second home.

Motto: "The end of the road is just the beginning."
During a semester abroad in South Africa, Hannes discovered his passion for photography, traveling and the outdoors. He has been on the back of mountainbikes and dirtbikes for more than 16 years. In 2013 he went on his first long distance motorcycle trip into the Saharan desert and has been exploring the continent on two wheels ever since.
After his university degrees in sports management and marketing Hannes worked in the mountainbike industry for SRAM. A few years later his fascination for motorbikes and nature brought him to the heart of the Alps. In Innsbruck he is currently working as freelance photographer/videographer as well as marketing manager for the motorcycle touring company TWTmoto.
