It all started 20 years ago with my passion for documenting and creating aesthetic images that tell stories. As an action sports specialist, I have been shooting outdoor activities all over the world, working closely with the best athletes in freeskiing, mountaineering, BASE jumping, kayaking, sailing and more.
By accumulating a lot of experience in various challenging natural environments, I have learned techniques to shoot, store and distribute content from remote places, ranging from capturing the best shots to workflow management in production teams and content distribution both online and offline.
I am Swiss, so my first natural playground was the Alps and the beautiful lakes we have, bouncing from mountain activities to water sports depending on the season. My inspiration comes from nature and unique lighting situations. I always try to think twice about the framing of a photograph and incorporate elements that are not expected. Silhouettes, shapes, shadows – my goal is to find different perspectives on any given subject.
I like photojournalism a lot. Through my travels I look for good subjects, forcing myself to tell a story through a single frame. I love the challenge and try to take timeless images, being more interested in ‘imperfect’ photography – images that are suggestive and can open a discussion – than obvious shots. I love to go out and play – and if at the end of the day I have one good picture to show... I call it a perfect day!
