Last weekend on the drive back from a hiking trip in the Swiss Canton of Glarus, my faithful Saab 900 and I were to get on the wrong side of an Alpine thunderstorm.Read More

This year will be about going above and beyond - above my own expectations and beyond the limits that I know. To help me in that process, I bought a drone!Read More
A few months ago I was hired to photograph the new space-themed escape room 'Armageddon'. I had previously photographed all of there other rooms for EscapeQuest in Zürich as well, but this one was on another level in terms of staging and decorations, which made it a lot of fun to shoot. Plus, we had people in astronaut costumes doing astronaut things!Read More
The premise was strange: "the weirdest vacation ever". The prospects were looking good: a bunch of chocolate and a potential Yeti costume. The flights were booked and along came Toby.
I had lured him with the promise of a great Yeti-chasing adventure fueled by free chocolate (thanks to Lindt). The chocolate manufacturer was looking for brand ambassadors and the idea of unlimited chocolate for life (I'm just going to assume that's part of the deal) was very enticing.Read More

A few weeks ago Dave and I went for a little Sunday drive to the Gotthard Pass. Initially we were headed to the Sanatorio del Gottardo down the other side of the valley, but time constraints kept us on the sane side. Instead we wandered around the Passhöhe, explored some little bunkers, and took a sneak peak of an abandoned hotel further down the road.Read More
"Do we need a raincoat?"
"Nah, I think we'll be back before it hits"
...and that's how this adventure with Mike and Ed (the Adventure Dog) began. It was a breezy morning with an early-ish start. Rain and thunder were on the menu for later in the afternoon, but we weren't expecting to be out at that time.Read More
