Born on 22.03.1958 in Zug, Switzerland I have been in Tokyo since 2001. Before I was living in Paris for over ten years. Japan is a great place for photography, nature and urban alike. My wife Yuko is working for JICA in projects for development in South and West Africa. Visiting her I could take photos in many great places in Africa. Photography was a hobby in my twenties but later my job took most of my time. In 2006 I was searching for an extra professional activity that could last and since then I am rarely without a camera. I enjoy taking photos when travelling in Japan, Africa, Asia and Europe. I work for BVLGARI in charge of client care in Japan.
