My name is Thomas Gleixner, born in 1991 in Warstein Germany, resident in Switzerland. Since 1999 I'm annualy visitor of Warsteiner Internationale Montgolfiade and I started to photograph in
2006. Two years later I had my first flight, which took me completely into hot air ballooning.
Currently I'm taking pictures with NIKON D810 and D7100, which are used in different festivals around the globe. Photography and Ballooning are my most important hobbies. I'm photographing all
kinds of balloons, particularly special shapes.
I want to thank all pilots with their wonderful balloons, without them it wouldn't be possible to take these pictures. If you like them, please share my website and visit me also at
