I was born and raised in Switzerland and live in Zürich, the biggest city, and started taking photos about 15 years ago when my dad gave me my first SLR camera. I worked as a graphic designer but wasn't happy with the work I got and started to think about being a photographer. In 2003 I combined two of my biggest passions and took my first snowboard photo.
Nowadays I work as a senior photographer for the biggest German snowboard magazine, Pleasure and travel all over the northern hemisphere to find good snow conditions. I also shoot for a lot of different snowboard magazines such as TransWorld, Method Mag or Snowboarder. Besides that I work for snowboard brands like Burton or Zimtstern.
During the season I shoot a lot with film crews like Absinthe Films to get the best riders in front of my lens. I also really like to go on photo missions without a filmer to focus on stills. Besides snowboarding, I like to shoot portraits, lifestyle and advertising during the summer.
My inspiration comes from many different sources – nature, people and places, the internet, other photographers and all the cool things I see during my travels.
