Christian began to study to be a pilot at the age of 14. "Since the beginning of my career, I was firmly convinced that I just needed to capture the unique atmosphere of the beautiful views I see from the cockpit," he says.
"Attempts to create a good photo is often seen as difficult and thankless job, but I still try to make for your audience, great pictures, in order to convey the feelings that I feel when they are in flight," added Christian.
"My colleagues support me, because now they have the opportunity to show your family and friends all the beauty that we are seeing every day with our jobs."
