I was born and raised in Lucerne, Switzerland. I have been shooting for 30 years in different fields: nature, landscape, architecture and travel photography. Now I specialize in shooting people: portrait, nude and erotic photography. As a professional architect I like forms, proportions, structures and light. For me, photography, architecture and art are related. In 2005 I won the Black and White Spider Awards (www.thespiderawards.com) for nude photography (Black and White Spider Awards Outstanding Archievement in Nude). I am Swiss Champion in photography 2006 and 2009 and I am writing teaching-books about photography.
