Rainer Eder was born in Austria and has lived in Switzerland for more than 20 years. He has been a professional for many years. The passionate climber is now an excellent connoisseur of the scene and works primarily with the best rock and ice climbers in the world, such as Ines Papert and David Lama.
In 2010 and 2013 he became a finalist in the Red Bull Illume photo competition; he has also been awarded the “Best Mountain Adventure Photo” at the Banff Mountain Photography Competition.
In addition to climbing, he also photographs other extreme athletes such as base jumpers, speed flyers, freeriders and kayakers - the main thing is that he can move outside, meet extraordinary people and document what they are doing. His photos appear in numerous outdoor, mountain and glossy magazines, and he also works for several large sporting goods manufacturers who particularly appreciate Eder's eye and his skilful staging.
