It was the daily rattle of the cable car to the Helm, one of the ski resorts in the middle of the Dolomites that
woke up the photographer already in his early childhood. Born in 1986 at the foot of this mountains, Harald
tried very early all kinds of wintersports, from sledging to snowboarding and free-style skiing. Today he
often leaves his bed much earlier than the cable car is able to wake him up to catch a spectacular sunrise
or trick in the fresh morning powder. In summer he traces mountainbikes, kajaks and slacklines in
breathtaking moments out in the nature. He travels a lot, but the Alpine region spanning from the North of
Italy to Switzerland, South of Germany and Austria he knows like his pockets.
But back from outdoor activities, Harald enjoys very much also to photograph architecture. The most
fascinating part for him behind every image are the persons, and how they perceive and express their
passion – be it sport or architecture.
“Everybody has a very personal life philosophy I try to capture with my camera”, says the young
photographer. His spare time Harald dedicates to his hidden passion, abstract photography and all shades
and forms of lights.
