DOCUMENTARY / EDITORIAL / CORPORATE PHOTOGRAPHER
VISUAL STORYTELLER
My cameras, notebooks and I have explored some of the outer reaches and hidden cracks of our world: from the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro to the floating slums of Bangladesh's capital, through to Rio's favelas, Ethiopia's rock-carved churches, Gaza's beaches, East Africa's refugee camps, Beijing's Olympic venues, Georgia's ski slopes and India's railcars.
To be perfectly honest, we've also wandered around each and every conference room in Geneva. Wherever we found people, we found stories. And today, we'd be happy to document and tell yours.
My gear and I are based out of Geneva, Switzerland, but will happily come to you, wherever in the world that may be.

MY APPROACH
'Real is Beautiful'.
To cut it short, this is my motto. Better described as my search for purpose, sincerity, empathy and truth in my work. I also try to include some humor whenever appropriate (or not) and I welcome contradictions, absurdity or complexity. This means I am not only interested in the making and taking of images, but also in their using. For me, the good photo is one that serves a need, or even better, a cause – and preferably a worthy one.
Because of my professional experience in branding/PR coupled with my educational background in social sciences, I strive to combine aesthetics, the central message with the impact of each image. Or as photojournalism legend James Nachtwey once eloquently put it: “Photography can cut through abstractions and rhetoric to help us understand complex issues on a human level.”
