  • The Rescued Film project

    In 2016, photographer and archivist Levi Bettwieser, who runs the Rescued Film project, put out a call for sponsorship. He had come into possession of 66 bundles of unprocessed, exposed film and needed help to cover the costs of developing it for archival purposes.

  • That’s the long-term plan, anyway. As promised in a previous blog post, I’ve completed the new Photos section of the site, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of permanenttourist.ch. Nothing is ever truly finished around here, so there will be improvements and tweaks as time goes on. It’s better to get something working online, than to spend…

  • Eleven years later, and Interlaken Town Council are still using the website I built for them. It may not be programmed for optimal use on mobile devices, pre-dating the iPhone by three years, but it still works flawlessly.

  • The latest project we’ve launched at !frappant is for SBB (Swiss Railways): a microsite for the Rail Control System team, which promotes their work controlling the flow of rail traffic throughout the national network.

  • Twenty Sixteen

    2016 sees the tenth anniversary of this website. I decided that this was to be the year when I’d do some major overhaul work on my site: improved technology and a long-awaited clear out of some legacy data problems. That’s all been completed, so now it’s time to work on the appearance of the site.

  • CSS Flexbox has been ready for mainstream use for a while now, and I’ve implemented it on a third client project for my employer.

  • I’m not a fan of one-page websites, as a rule. But making sure that they load as quickly as possible goes a long way to making them acceptable.

  • Remembering my work in 2008 on Swiss t.v.’s Funky Kitchen Club.

  • Back in 2011, the organizers of Bike To Work Switzerland approached my employer !frappant Webfactory to re-develop their website and the participants’ admin system. I worked with a third-party usability consultant to re-think and re-design the project, before I carried out the design work in Photoshop and the team and I subsequently produced the website on the base…

  • Flexible by default

    One of the great things about being responsible for the technical direction of a team of developers is that you get to bring your ideas to a project and, in many instances, try out new techniques which would otherwise only be seen on a personal website or blog. I wrote at the beginning of the…

  • The thronging crowd

    As I wrote earlier in the week, I was honoured to be allowed to show 20 of my photos from the One Frame Movie series at the 50th anniversary show of Pix Mix in Bern this week. I hadn’t quite anticipated the number of people who would be attending and during the break, I quickly…

  • I love taking portraits of people; whether I know them or not. I do it because of my passion for the image, not for financial gain, and I really wish more people would volunteer to let me photograph them. Here’s why.

  • I was delighted to be invited to submit to the upcoming “Open Show” in Lausanne, an evening of photographic presentation by a small selection of photographers, and honoured to have my submission confirmed earlier today. I’ll be showing twenty photos from my One Frame Movie series next Thursday evening, 18th August, at the Espace Carbu…

  • A photo shoot in a cellar cinema in Bern adds a new photo to my One Frame Movie series.

  • Now that the spring is here once more, I’m looking for volunteers for my photo series “One Frame Movie”.

  • I was contacted a while back by the editor of Czech photo blog Odcloněno, Michal Fanta: Michal asked to interview me and use some of my photos on the blog. The interview was published this morning; here’s the English transcript. Many thanks to Michal for the exposure and, as he’s mentioned; please do get in…

  • My biggest work project in 2010 was the re-building of the wide network of websites for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region of Burson-Marsteller.
