about me

My professional approach to adventure and action photography is the result of my own record as a sportsman. The first publications about rock climbers in Yosemite National Park back in 1999 paved the way for my future. In the following years I concentrated my attention on alpine photography: South Tyrol was the best place for this quest and Martin and Florian Riegler the best partners to make my dreams come true. The next couple of years went by quickly: thousands of pics found their way into my archives and many others were published in international magazines. The intensive time during my adventures has always reflected my personal approach to freedom, independence and, especially, to going beyond my own limits. These elements were to be reflected later in my future works again and again. 2010 after the works to the climbing film Borderline in Spain, Martin inspired me to attend sky­diving and wingsuit pilot courses. So a new chapter opened and the first professional film and photo material was produced. The content of www.mmARts.at is the result of these long lasting workouts, experiments, professional advanced trainings, escapes from normal life and sometimes even escapes from the illusions of our modern society.“Safety is the biggest illusion of human imagination” The constant aspiration for safety takes us the courage to find our limits and live ourdreams.       Michael Maili……Owner of mmARts Photography, lives in Bruck an der Mur, Styria, Austria.
