Photo of the month: Kiteboarding Doubleloop


Double kite loop, simultaneous kiteloop, perfectly synchronous Killerloop at Kahana/ Maui/ Hawaii.

"No, this photo is not a composing."
This is how the article above starts out - and for good reason.

This shot is the real deal. A windy day in Hawaii, two very gutsy riders in perfect sync looping the killer kite loop absolutely simultaneously, a photographer at high alert nailing it on the trigger... no photoshop fake involved.

That's what I like shooting the most - capturing top-athletes at peak performance action. Broad-ranging familiarity with a wide variety of action-sports and long-time experience help me in this.

Core, one of the leading German kite brands, trusts my work and commissions me with shooting their imagery for catalog, ads, banners, websites etc.
