DPS Cinematic’s fifth season is underway and the second episode takes us behind the lens of legendary ski photographer, Oskar Enander.
“Drawn to the mountains in search of the ski bum lifestyle, Oskar Enander had no intention of ever becoming a photographer. Today, Oskar’s iconic and unique perspective is highly sought after in the ski world. And yet, he shoots very little outside of winter. This film goes behind the lens in Oskar’s hometown of Engelberg, Switzerland to explore a life in the mountains and the influences that shape a ski photographer.”
“I frame it but the athlete is painting it.”
Since becoming a ski photographer in 2002, Oskar has been awarded Powder Magazine’s Photo of the year three times.
“Everywhere I look, that’s what I want to shoot”
Check out some images from Oskar’s incredible Instagram account below…

I had a nice little insta break, good times. April has been quite different from last year when we had multiple cold storms. I do enjoy the summer feel we have at the moment though. Still plenty of snow up high for a potential pow day before winter is over. Quite a big contrast from today’s run with @jonas_engelin_ and last years cold smoke with @pierssolomon . . . #skiing #engelberg #powder #running #summer #winter #switzerland
