Sebastian Marko has paved the path for the action/adventure sports industry with his progressive and inspiring work. Sebastian was born in eastern Austria and then moved out to Innsbruck where he continues to be engulfed in the sports community. In the early 90’s, Sebastian began his first work with analog cameras and it quickly grew into a passion. Being able to travel the world and capture memorable moments are the main motives behind his drive for photography. He loves the challenge in action sports that you have one shot, and one shot only to capture that image in the moment.
When asked what he loves about being a photographer, Sebastian says its the ability to travel to the most exotic places in the world and spend his days outdoors. Shooting moments of talented athletes in the rising sun of Machu Picchu are times that Sebastian lives for. A day in the life with Sebastian is always different, which is a good thing in his opinion. On most days, he is up early enjoying a good breakfast for the long day ahead and then packing the gear. Depending on the shoot, he will be able to organize and pack his gear differently mostly based on the climate. Sebastian states that organization is everything to him when he is on a job, and will always dedicate time to this task. Traveling the world and shooting photos is more than just a job for Sebastian, its a lifestyle. “There’s no bad weather just bad clothing”. - Sebastian Marko
