Christoph Seebacher – #Winter2018/19 Hero

“My Name is Christoph Seebacher, I am an 28 year old tech and design enthusiast from Austria, addicted to minimalism and with a degree in computer science.

I started taking photos in late 2016 when me and my girlfriend decided to buy our first DSLR cam. I totally fell in love with the technology of photography as well as with capturing our own special moments and creating unique compositions. Since then I try to improve my photography skills on a daily basis. In the last 2 years I have also slowly increased my collection of photography equipment with some new lenses and a DJI drone to get most out of my shots and get to know different angles and new perspectives.

I found the AGORA Community six months ago and was very impressed with the idea of this online platform. I have only had positive experiences with this platform and will definitely continue participating in more of AGORA’s interesting Contests in the future!

I hope you all enjoy my work or at least got a little insight into my unique point of view. Please take a look and my AGORA profile and follow me!”


The guest judge for this Contest has been photographer Oscar Penelo

We called upon Oscar Penelo (@oscar_penelo) our #Blue2018 Hero from Spain, to lend the Community a hand with choosing the #Winter2018/19 Hero.

Guest Judge’s selection criteria:

“I have chosen @the.rolling.drone’s photo as the winner because of its perfect composition and symmetry. The lighting is ideal, as in many situations shooting snow can lead to over exposure! The colours are also very harmonious. Congratulations!”

On behalf of the entire AGORA Team, congratulations to Carles Alonso for becoming our #Winter2018/19 Hero! 👏🏽🎉
