Willi Nothers

Photographer

discovered his passion for photography in school during a photography-workshop. After school a Hi-8 videocamera found the way into his backpack, next to his skateboard. When the young man not has been working in his apprenticeship, he was outside with his friends to do what he loves and lives –skateboarding and in the early days also wakeboarding and exploring the citys around him, never without his video camera. In the age of 17 he started snowboarding, he got addicted to the mountainsport and lifestyle. That means to him a lot of journys between his home in the mid-west of germany and the austrian and swiss alps. Finally he spend two full winter seasons in the austrian alps. Don´t call him a freak or a nerd, but all this new digital media possibilitys growing fast in the late 90´s navigated
Willi´s life in a new direction. Willi still loves till this day every recordbuttom-push and every single trigger he did with his video and photocameras. Finally it was the thrill to freeze the millisecond and tell a story with one single picture that makes him found his way as a photographer.
