I'm a Euro-American commercial, editorial and art photographer based in Berlin (formerly San Francisco). I specialize in environmental portraiture with the world as my studio, striving to create unexpected compositions of people and the unusual spaces they occupy. Combining both natural light and studio strobes, I sculpt light to create a mood, an atmosphere, a photograph that tells a story and, hopefully, sparks curiosity in the viewer. I love taking on additional roles during my personal projects: art director, producer, location scout, wardrobe stylist, assistant, retoucher; but nothing beats collaborating with a dedicated team of like-minded creatives. It's been a long road from Switzerland to California and now Germany, from Science to Graphic Design, from New Media to Photography. No matter what the medium is, being able to create, meet extraordinary people, and travel this stunning world is the ultimate reward. "At the age of nine, I would draw caricatures of my dad's work-colleagues during business dinners. They got passed around and generated some great laughs, except for one woman. I later found out that the woman I drew with emphasized wrinkles and exaggerated features, got a face-lift soon thereafter. From that day on, I knew I would always be doing art, that it could change the world, or at least inspire facial reconstruction."
