Thomas Aichinger   Photographer

Images    Portrait

Thomas Aichinger was born in 1971. He has been interested in photography since the age of 16.
Since then his main focus has been on underwater photography, which has been commended with the award "Staatsmeistertitel der österreichischen Unterwasserfotografen". He prefers to take pictures in the clear waters of Austria and especially turns his attention to Split photographs, which actually are half and half images. By using this method the photo has the unusual perspective of both underwater and above water scenes.
In the last 10 years he has extended the range of his topics to include outdoor subjects in general: canyoning, hiking, mountaineering, climbing, extreme sports and much more besides. Central aspects of his work are humans and animals in their environment. Moreover, as one of the few photographers working in the National Park Kalkalpen he made his mark as a nature photographer.
