Lorenz Holder Photo Slideshow 2015

Check out snowboard photographer Lorenz Holder’s winning slideshow from the 2015 WSSF Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown in Whistler. There are some truly stunning shots here!

Lorenz Holder is a professional photographer from Munich, Germany and as such, has the mountains deeply engrained into his lifestyle and up-bringing. As an ex-professional snowboarder himself, Lorenz has an inherent understanding of what works great in a snowboard shot, and today he is a true master of flash photography and looking at spots differently.

From his atmospheric shots, to his more creative endeavors (the underwater pond-skim shoot for example), to his shots on never-before seen spots (the satellite dish shot that claimed Red Bull’s Illume 2013 award), Lorenz is truly one of the best in the biz.

Take a look at all of his best shots in the slideshow that earned him the $10,000 grand prize in the 2015 WSSF Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown in Whistler.

About Lozenz Holder: I grew up in Munich, close to the Bavarian mountains, and it is those mountains that have always played a major role in my life. I was a semi-professional snowboarder back in the day, until I injured myself badly and I pretty much had to quit snowboarding for a whole season in 2003. In that time I discovered the pleasure of photography for myself. I was fascinated by photos that could describe a whole scene, a whole story or even a whole day, in just one small moment caught on film. This fascination was one of the biggest motivations for me to start my career as a professional photographer. Right now I work as senior photographer for Pleasure Snowboard Magazine and as a staff photographer for Nitro Snowboards. I travel pretty much the whole winter, always on the search for the best snow conditions and creative locations. I love shooting snowboarding in fresh, uncommon locations. In my photos I like to show the viewers a different angle, something they normally wouldn’t notice, even if they were there at the scene. I might use colorful flashes, different camera angles or tilt and shift lenses – always trying to capture something a bit different. On the other hand, I also love the documentary style; simple black and white documentary is something very real.
