Bavo Swijgers

This Belgian dude first picked up the camera aged 8 and hasn’t looked back. Since the first time he strapped in 13 years ago he’s been training his lens on snowboarding, and snapping mates pulling backscratchers started to become more serious from 2000 onwards. Mainly shooting with Belgian and Dutch riders means there’s no shortage of eager subjects when it comes to throwing down the hammers in the European hills, and last year he was shadowing the Euro Forum team for the winter which he claims was a sick opportunity. The best place he’s ever shot? Easy: Japan. And to chill he likes nothing better than a cool beer and a chance to hang with his daughter and girl. Probably not in that order. Probably.
