Silvano Zeiter’s magnetic attraction to powder sparked an interest in action photography as he began shooting his friends on the mountain. At the age of 20, Zeiter made the finals in the international Red Bull Illume competition‹, the youngest photographer to ever do so. Still just 25, Zeiter has established himself as one of the most creative young image-makers in action sports, nature and lifestyle photography with access to riders frequently gracing lists of the top snowboarders in the world, such as Nicolas Müller and Frederik Kalbermatten. His work appears regularly in snowboarding magazines around the globe and his advertising clients include brands likeBillabong, Dakine, Swatch and Volcom. Based in the Alps but frequently traveling to shoot locations as varied Japan, Norway and the Canadian backcountry, Zeiter says his goal is „to keep learning and adding layers to who I am and what I do.“
