Capturing the wild side of life...

 

I was born and raised in Switzerland and moved to Brisbane, Australia over 10 years ago. My passion for photography started here in Brisbane and after discovering Light Painting Photography. I dedicated many hours in the dark to the art of creating light sculptures with a long camera exposure.

I love to photograph Australian wildlife and try bringing the captured wildlife closer to my audience. By showing these beautiful animals I hope to make the viewer aware of the fragility of nature and what we need to protect. 

Unfortunately, humans have wiped out on average 60% of mammals, birds, fish and reptiles since 1970 a recent study finds.

I hope to capture a fraction of them before they are gone.

Only what you know, you will love and protect...

Please contact me if you like my style and would like to discuss your ideas.
