When looking for fascinating sports footage for the Photo Münsingen 2020 we came across the photos of Thomas Stöckli.
We would have loved to show his fantastic, dynamic snowboard shots. Unfortunately, it didn't work out for various reasons. We have now received an email from Thomas. After hectic years combined with many trips, he has now used the Corona time to clean up his archive and website.
Thomas Stöckli was born in Switzerland in 1978. Snowboarding became his passion. At the age of 23 he had to end his professional career due to a knee injury. He took the opportunity to learn the craft of photography, has since traveled the world and documented the freestyle snowboarding scene under the pseudonym «Creager».
In 2014, his unique, timeless style earned him the title of “Advertising Photographer of the Year”. The aesthetic movement in sport continues to inspire him. But he also deals with meditative landscapes, portraits and still lifes. Among other things, he has been photographing the innovative shoe brand ON, a Swiss success story, since 2013.
