Extreme and Motorsports Photographer
Philip Platzer was born in Graz, Austria in 1979 and since then developed a passion for outdoor adventure sports such as mountain biking, surfing, and snowboarding. His love of photography grew naturally from his outdoor pursuits, allowing him to capture the emotion of the moments he experienced. After buying his first SLR camera in 2008, he became hooked. He developed his skills as an autodidact by assisting various fashion, advertising, and sports photographers. When he turned pro in 2010, motorsports photography provided a lot of opportunity and excitement and remains a key part of his work. Over the years, his respect for the art form has deepened and he continues to push himself to capture truly unique shots, fuelling his passion for photography.
