Analog Pool Photos – Eurotour Sankt Johann

This time I shot with film too, manual focusing and pretty low light in Sankt Johann Alpendorf was quite a challenge and very interesting for me.
Scroll down to see the gallery and let me know what you think about shooting with film theses days.

Eurotour Sankt Johann – Alpendorf

It has been a while since I visited the Eurotour in Austria. This time it was double sweet because I had my charming girlfriend on my side and because I was able to meet many friends again! I saw lots of new (young) faces on the tables, this made me feel a little old school 🙂
Happy to see that new talents are on their way and this makes pool alive. Congrats to Joshua Filler to stay on the winner side till the finals. Great way to be a runner up! Congratulations to Niels Feijen to win the title again in Austria!!

Emotions of the European Pool Championships 9 Ball Finals

What a long day that was. After finishing the gallery I went running to the peer. It’s so beautiful here…
With the breakfast I tried to get some energy for the day and afterwards I went to the tournament.
This day I captured a lot of emotion from all the players with working at the same concept as the day before. No std shots, because I think this way I can make you feel how it is to be here. So enjoy the finales with me and Click on the picture to enjoy the gallery.

European Pool Championships Portorož day 18 (my first one ;)

Because I have so many other stuff to do, I decided to just join some days at the EC. After I told my mum I go to Portorož, she was so excited and wanted immediately to join me on that trip. We left my hometown at 8 am and hoped to be there 4,5 hours later….
6,5 hours later we arrived at the venue (with some nasty traffic jams in between)
After checking in, we went straight to the tournament area and as you can imagine, I started to take photos.
Somehow taking standard photos of pool players (down at the table) was getting a bit boring for me, so I decided to share how I see the people.
So after you entered the gallery, you will get my view of the tournament and the people around it.

Creative exhibition in my hometown

Scroll down for English version!

Am letzten Wochenende gab es die 1. Muckendorfer Kreativausstellung im Haus der Generationen. Dort stellten die kreativen Köpfe unserer Gemeinde Ihre Arbeiten aus. Ich bekam in letzter Minute auch noch einen Platz für meine Bilder. Da ich einen Workshop die Tage davor hatte, war ich natürlich ein wenig gestresst vor der Ausstellung und dachte auch nicht, dass allzu viele Leute kommen werden. Da hatte ich mich aber getäuscht, das Haus der Generationen war richtig voll und wir hatten sehr viele nette Menschen an unseren Stand.
Vielen Dank nochmal an Barbara Vacha und unsere Gemeinde für die wunderschöne Veranstaltung. Im Anhang meine Bildergallerie von der Veranstaltung

English Version:

 

During the last weekend we had our first Muckendorfer creative exhibition in our hometown.
All the creative people from our neighborhood displayed their work there. I got a last minute chance to get a space there also. It was a little stressful because I had a workshop the days before. I also did not expect to have lots of people there. But I was mistaken the “Haus der Generationen” (The house where the exhibition was) was quite full and lots of beautiful people where visiting our booth. Thanks again to Barbara Vacha and to the city hall for creating such a great event. I attached my gallery underneath. Enjoy the pictures!

Eurotour St. Johann im Pongau Day1

Another very long day in my life….

 

Went up early in the morning and drove to St. Johann. On my way the police forced me to have a break…..because of the “Österreich-Radrundfahrt” (a bicycle race).
After my arrival it was as usual here….super nice weather….a beautiful view and a super nice hotel with very friendly/polite people.

 

Finally I had the opportunity to show (and give) some of my pool photos to the players and visitors. The reactions were very positive and a lot of people think the same way like I do…..that’s the way to go.

 

If you are in St. Johann….don’t hesitate to contact Sunny or me if you are interested in high end Pool Billiard Pictures …..also if you just wanna see how they look like. Just give it a chance and I am sure it will make you smile.

 

It was happy to see all of you guys again 😉

 

Normally I don’t have that much time to watch matches, but this time I spent like 25 to 30 minutes and saw one from the beginning until the end. Chris Melling rushed like a hurricane over Kemilev Nikola (9:0). Chris was running around the table like he had too much coffee 😉 He played super well and I think he was really running sometimes…..more and more people were watching that match. Chris only slowed down a bit (still fast) for kickshots. Congrats for a great performance!!!!
