The past years as a photographer were a hell of a ride! I’ve been able to travel to countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, India, the Philippines, Cambodia, Ecuador, Palestine, Libanon, France, Belgium, Sweden, Germany and of course many places in Switzerland. I’ve met and photographed people in their darkest hours and the happiest days of their live. While some shootings demand very quick actions and are rather superficial, others need a lot of persuasion to even be able to come close with a camera.

Being a good photographer is hardly about gear but rather having the ability to connect with people, making them feel comfortable, show empathy and to merge discreetly in the background at given times.
