"Adventure is a state of mind."
Franz Walter is a guy who wears many hats: photographer, filmmaker, designer, programmer. He studied Media Technology, where he began his search for a way to combine tech and nature, resonance and reach, thinking and doing throughout his life.
The outdoors have always been an important part of his life, being introduced early on to canoeing. Franz quickly added whitewater kayaking and traveling, which took him to such remote places as the Tatshenshini and Colorado rivers. Nowadays he is an all-rounder, with travels taking him around the world.
Since 2007 Franz has run his own creative studio, where he has developed a long-term relationship with the majority of his clients, most of them athletes and brands in the outdoor industry. His work philosophy is based on simplicity, wit and problem solving.
As a photographer the creative nomad explores the relationships of landscape and human activity. He is also the co-founder of madebynomads, a creative collective of specialists with expertise in writing, photography, filmmaking, design, marketing and brand building.
