I wrote about Chienbäse (the […]

  • Wedding at Kulturhof Schloss Köniz

    I’ve added some new photographs to my online wedding photography portfolio, from a ceremony and party in October. It was a wonderful afternoon and evening for the couple and the location, at the Kulturhof Schloss Köniz near Bern, helped me to produce some wonderful shots. Two of my favourite photos from the event are the […]

    Emmental fire festival

    The Fire Festival in Signau, a small area in the Emmental valley, is a Swiss folk and artistic festival; a smaller equivalent of Burning Man in the U.S. My friend and independent filmmaker Yannick de Zordo – who plays bass guitar for Choo Choo and who produced the great video for their song “We Go” […]

  • Wedding photography for fun

    I gain a lot of pleasure through photographing the most important day of a couple’s life, and have spent a lot of time honing my skills to make sure that my subjects don’t just get a standard set of photos, but a unique visual documentary of the day through special moments.
