I’ve studied media and politics and am autodidact in photography, but I went through a lot of stages and worked a long time as an assistant for different photographers. My specializations are movement and portraits, including music artists as well as athletes. From my home base in Zürich/Zizers, I work for clients like Nike, Head, Burton, Zimtstern, Sony, and Opel. I publish contributions regularly in magazines such as Pleasure, Swiss Magazine, Lodown, Snowboard UK, Snowsurf, and Word, and one of my photos was chosen as the cover shot for Transworld Snowboarding’s 2006 Photo Annual. My work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in Munich and Zürich.
My recent book, Nature of Snowboarding, is my magnum opus, resulting from an intensive concentration on the theme of snowboarding over the past years. Instead of being full of high-gloss pictures, it provides an unusual view of snowboarding by focusing on the characters from different cultures and countries I have met on the scene. They all have one thing in common: a love for snowboarding. The book uncovers the nature of this sport — the life. You can read much more about the nature of snowboarding in these faces than in anything else published so far about the sport.
