Photography by Sven von Schlachta





Landscape- & Travel photography

Dramatic natural scenes, stunning scenery and inspiring places - my pictures tell of the beauty of our earth in versatile form. My favorites are to explore the original, wild nature, as well as popular motifs from a slight different viewpoint.

I am focusing on many outdoor sports activities, specialized on downhill skate
(Longboard / Streetluge and other wheelbased downhill activities like inline skating).
(Also other Actions like motorsports are always in my field of vision.

According to my motto "A picture is worth a thousand words"
I want to tell real life stories and special situations with my pictures,
for bringing people closer to these unique moments.



About me

Sven von Schlachta

I was born in Bonn/Germany and started as a photographer in 1984. I learned my handicraft through self-instruction in diverse situations including landscape, travel photography, reports, sports, people and by available light-photographs in stage shows. In the beginning I started with (analog) film photography and switched in 2000 to digital equipment. Based on this new technology I started a new way of creative photography.
