Elias was born in 1994 in Austria’s Ötztal where he also grew up. Majestic mountains, which always pose new challenges, have surrounded him all his life. So he started climbing and seeing the world from above, matching with nature and testing his limits. Climbing became his passion, and through his climbing he discovered photography – to capture unique moments up in the mountains. For several years, Elias used every opportunity to accompany athletes around the world, gain experience as a sports photographer and develop his skills in other fields. Eventually he turned his passion to profession. In 2013 he established woodslave productions and doesn’t leave his house without a camera ever since.
Christian wurde 1981 in Tirol/ Österreich geboren und lebt im Kaunertal, daher hatte er schon immer eine enge Verbindung zum Bergsport. Klettern und Snowboarden sind seine große Leidenschaft. Als er 17 Jahre alt war, kaufte sich sein älterer Bruder eine Canon EOS 3 und von dem Moment an war es um Christian geschehen. Bis er sich seine eigene Kamera leisten konnte, lieh er sich immer wieder die Kamera seines Bruders. Mit 21 assistierte er einem deutschen Modefotografen mit Sitz in Innsbruck. Gemeinsam reisten beide um die ganze Welt, u.a. nach Sambia, Simbabwe, Kapstadt, Miami, Mauritius, Barbados, Chicago, San Francisco und New York. Nach 5 Jahren als Assistent, realisierte Christian, dass er den nächsten Schritt wagen und sich selbständig machen wollte. Gesagt, getan. Er machte seinen Magister als Fotograf und versucht seitdem seinen Beruf mit seinen Hobbies zu verbinden – Fotografieren, Klettern und Snowboarden.
