Why me?
Great shots rarely "just happen" and skilled photographers don't rely on luck to get the shot. I am  a swiss based professional with many years of experience especially skilled in making people and architecture look their very best.

Portrait - People

Thoughtful care and attention
I have years of experience with professional models and individuals with absolutely no modeling experience whatsoever (e.g., authors, musicians, politicians, business people, etc.). I will help you relax, assist your posing and work patiently with you to create high quality, flattering images.

The best team
I work with professional hair stylists, make up artists, image consultants, wardrobe stylists and set designers that will help you make your creative vision a reality.

The best equipment for people
I work with  Mamiya medium format cameras, Mamiya lenses and a
Leaf Aptus digital back featuring a 43x32 sensor which is 68% larger than a full frame Canon or Nikon. The much larger medium format sensor produces true 16-bit images for unequalled color accuracy, stunning clarity and an unrivaled 12-stop dynamic range of contrast.

Architectural / Industrial

Thoughtful care and attention
I have years of experience with architects and buildings. Enough time to discuss and stay on the object to capture the best, at the best time, specialized in mixed light situations, so that the beauty of space will speak for himself.

The best equipment for architectural / industrial
I work with  a Sinar Large format camera, Schneider and Rodenstock lenses and a Leaf Aptus digital back featuring a 43x32 sensor which is 68% larger than a full frame Canon or NIkon. The much larger medium format sensor produces true 16-bit images for unequalled color accuracy, stunning clarity and an unrivaled 12-stop dynamic range of contrast.

On-line proofs
I do personally edit and crop all of your images and present your proofs in a variety of looks (e.g., color, black and white, sepia, various cropping, etc.). Proofs are made available on-line usually within 4 Days of your shoot.
