Reinhard Fichtinger eats, sleeps and breaths climbing and has built an incredible career around his passion. Reinhard lives in Innsbruck, Austria where he works as a photographer specializing in climbing and bouldering. He started climbing over 25 years ago and photography always paralleled climbing through the documentation of his trips. About 10 years ago Reinhard started to take photography more seriously and began his career as a professional working for large outdoor companies and magazines. When asked what he loves most about his job he said the ability to travel, giving him the ability to venture to untouched climbing destinations around the world.
Reinhard first began taking photos working with analog photography. As his career progressed, he made the leap to digital, but more and more he finds himself going back to analog and working in different formats such as 35mm. He finds that his creativity can be expressed through the manual modes in various camera systems. His creativity also plays a large role in setting climbing routes for amateurs and professional climbing competitions while working Sqaudra Climbing Holds. All in all, Reinhard’s incredible talent brings recognition to the strength and dedication that these climbers posses.
