I am 38 years old, born and raised in Switzerland and living in the beautiful Swiss Alps with my wife Anne and daughter Meryll. I started photography by printing my pictures in the darkroom (my parents' bathroom) at night then delivering the photos the next morning to a local newspaper.
Fifteen years later and step-by-step from local to international clients, I have made my way as a professional photographer working for different media such as Bike Germany, Powder and Bike USA, 7 sky (Switzerland), The new York Times and other international brands. I have skied since I was four years old and I started mountain biking 22 years ago, so logically I shoot these two sports the most. I love to ride my bike for myself or go skiing in the backcountry with my friends.
Now I travel around the world more and more but I still like to discover and shoot in the swiss Alps, which is my favorite studio on earth. The magic of outdoor photography is that you don’t know the word ‘routine’ and for 15 years i never felt like it is ‘work’. i think that my main task as a photographer is to try to share a moment, an emotion and information. When you achieve these three things you can say, “i have a good picture.”
