I was born and raised in a small town in the eastern part of Switzerland. I am now based in Zurich and studying media and communication. Although I've always been a creative person and knew my way around a camera from earlier projects, I really started to develop a serious passion for photography during the 2020 Lockdown. My main focus lies in portrait and studio work but I always try to experiment and challenge myself by capturing different subjects in all kinds of conditions.

What fascinates me so much about photography is the attempt of taking a moment in time and expressing it through one single image. When I'm sitting with a subject, my goal is not only to show their face, but to try and capture their personality, emotions and place in life. I think the art lies not in showing what can be seen by the naked eye, but rather through the expression of everything else. The craft of photography on the other hand lies in the technical ability and knowledge of the photographer, which enable him to present the art in a fitting way.

Pursuing photography has allowed me to view the world in a new and different way. It has enabled me to connect with new people, explore incredible places and find beauty where I least expected it. My goal is to keep on learning and expanding my skillset so I can capture this world and its people in even more ways.
