All about me

    Engineer/Photographer/Artist
     

    I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.

Since picking up my first camera in 2011, then the Canon 7D MkI, I've been largely exploring the different flavours of the art;  landscape,  portrait,  street,  abstract and so on, and I'm now beginning to understand the genre(s) of photography that excite me the most. My true style is still a bit in flux as I begin to discover exactly where I want to go, but I’m passionate about street photography and I find the work of a talented wedding photographer truly fascinating and totally inspiring. In my opinion they must be grand masters of the art, mastering all of the aformentioned flavours, seemingly effortlessly. This is why you'll find a mix of street and artistic portraits in my portfolio. 

On the streets I love images that demonstrate timing with perfection, images that portray mystery and intrigue with layers and depth that reveal new previously unnoticed things the more you look at them. Artistic view, strong lines, shadows and vibrant colours very much work for me when applied to an artistic wedding/portrait style. Whether it be wedding or street, it's  incredibly difficult to capture that perfect moment, while at the same time balancing light, emotion, composition and that uniquely artistic style every photographer has. The fact that good photography is not easy, is exactly the reason why I'm totally hooked. 

On a more personal note, I'm a project leader in ASIC design, living in Switzerland for the last 10 years. I speak German - Guten Tag!, Swiss German - Grüessech!, English - obvs, and I attend weekly Italian courses - Ciao a tutti!. Aside from photography, I’m largely interested in anything geeky: networking, web-design (hope you like it), tech-gadgets, audio equipment, you name it, but I'm also passionate about art and design. I have a somewhat OCD like attention to detail and I just love symmetry and minimalism - I spend a lot of time fiddling with things that no one would ever notice (any normal person anyway).

  • Your images give me a clear sense of your visual language, aesthetic sensibilities and astute attention to details, light, color and design element. I would highly, highly, recommend to continue working in that manner. You have the passion and the potential.
