Bayreuth: Lars Scharl

Lars-Arne Scharl constantly looks for new challenges as a photographer. His origins lie in action sports photography, a field known for its versatility and beauty but also for its physical demands and often extreme shooting conditions.

Lars began his photographic career in 2006 and a year later won the 'Wettbewerb für Sportfotografie 2007', Germany's biggest competition for young sports photographers.

He loves to spend his time in the wild, capturing action sports in natural environments when the light is best - even if that means spending hours in -20°C temperatures and then having about five minutes of great light to work with!

Recent photo travels have taken him to Russia, South Africa and Finland. Besides his photography, Lars also produced a short video clip in 2012 - a low-budget film edited by Fabian Kluhs, for which the two of them travelled to Spain and Finland to accompany a young bike athlete. The clip has been viewed more than 80,000 times on YouTube alone.

Recent clients include Red Bull, Kempa, iXS, DMR Bikes, Dartmoot Bikes and NS Bikes.

Since 2011, he has been a member of the f-stop Staff Pro team.
