Rainer Eder is a talented photographer and enthusiastic climber, who was born in Austria and has lived in Switzerland for over 20 years now. A professional since 2005, Rainer shoots amazing outdoor, extreme sports, landscapes and climbing photography. He has focused on working with some of the best rock and ice climbers in the world, such as Ines Papert and David Lama. “I am a climbing enthusiast and natural networker, knowing literally everyone in the climbing scene, which has given me the chance to shoot the world’s best rock and ice climbers,” he says.
Originally, I started out as a painter, but even before my time as a professional, I regularly shot assignments for popular outdoor brands such as ODLO, Mammut, Black Diamond and Red Bull, to name a few. When doing shoots for them, I always try to put less spectacular activities such as hiking, running or golfing into perfect focus. One of my skiing shots was awarded “Best Mountain Adventure Photo” at the Banff Mountain Photography Competition and I was a finalist of the 2010 Red Bull Illume contest.
