Stefan Schlumpf: I figured out my passion for photography when I took some pictures with an old analog camera. I was joining some friends in the deep snow in the Alps and then slowly started to accompany them in different extreme and outdoor sports.

Understanding the sport is very important to shoot good pictures, especially with sports like climbing or ski mountaineering and freeriding. I have to take responsibility for myself. Hanging on a huge wall while taking pictures of climbers or handling the avalanche risks during freeride pictures.

There are quite a few challenges like going to the Indian Himalaya to join an expedition, or to New Zealand or Argentina for freeriding road trips. Every trip is unique and special. Nevertheless, I have never had the possibility to go to Antarctica and organise a shooting. I would love to do that. Maybe someday if I have the opportunity. But the most challenging thing is to bring the gear to remote places and sometimes it is really really really cold!
