Our professional approach to filmmaking and photography is the result of longstanding experience and feed backs from all around the world. The first publications about rock climbers in Yosemite National Park back in 1999 paved the way in our future. In the following years we concentrated our attentions on advertising and alpinism photography: South Tyrol was a good place for this quest and our friends and professional athletes Martin and Florian Riegler the best partners to make our passion come true. The next couple of years went by quickly: thousands of pics found their way into our archives and many others were published in international magazines and workbooks.

The intensive time during our adventures has always reflected our personal approach to freedom, independence and, especially, to going beyond our own limits. These elements were to be reflected later in our future works again and again. 2010 after the works to the climbing film Borderline in Spain, Martin Riegler inspired us to attend base jumping and skydiving pilot courses. So a new chapter was opened and the first professional film and photo material was produced. The content of bigwall productions is the result of these long lasting workouts, experiments, professional advanced trainings, escapes from normal life and sometimes even escapes from the illusions of our modern society.

“Safety is the biggest illusion of human imagination” The constant aspiration for safety takes us the courage to find our limits and live our dreams.
