The passionate mountaineer evolved to an internationally renowned photographer. Together with his wife Manuela and his daughter Clarissa, he lives in Kochel am See, with the mountains in his backyard.
“For more than 30 years, my camera has been my partner in the mountains. In the beginning, documenting our routes and expeditions was the focus. This was followed by a period of exciting advertisement photography. In the future, I’d like to spend more time with alpine adventure photography again, but also with abstract art photography. Spending an intense time in the mountains, on my own or together with some good friends - authentic, emotional, back to the roots.”
Currently, Bernd is working on the topic “Glaciers of the Alps”. After more than three years of intense work, Bernd was able to publish a book on this topic in spring 2020. In August 2020, Bernd opened the first exhibition on his work in the village of Vent/Ötztal Alps, Austria.
Today, Bernd is one of the most famous European mountain and outdoor photographers.
