I’m a photographer from Bern, Switzerland, with an emphasis on travel, street and editorial as well as architecture photography. I have shifted my focus from digital to analog photography throughout the last few years. These days, I mostly stick to film for personal projects and use a digital camera for commissioned work. It’s the beautiful looks, the colors and the slowing down in the analog process that fascinate and motivate me. I compose my photos much more carefully when I shoot film. Although I like the process of developing film myself, I usually send it to the amazing Carmencita Film Lab in Valencia, Spain or the awesome Richard Photo Lab in Valencia, California. I recently got into darkroom printing and hence spend more time in the darkroom, so I still develop film myself sometimes. Besides taking pictures, I spend a lot of time with travel, coffee and food.
I follow a minimalistic approach, trying to have as little equipment as possible and as much as necessary. I usually work with available/natural light only and mostly shoot a Hasselblad 503 CW medium format camera and a Leica M6 rangefinder. My preferred film stocks are Kodak’s Portra 400 and Tri-X 400.
