I was born in 1982 in Aarau (Switzerland). After graduating from high school, I served as assistant to Laurent Schmid in Zurich. He worked mainly in advertising and still life. A year later I worked for the fashion photographer Hannes Kirchof. In 2005 I entered the photography program at the École d’Arts Appliqués de Vevey (CEPV). After graduating in 2007, I left for Paris, where I started an internship at Daylight Studios. I was hired as an assistant in 2007. A year later I began working as a digital and lighting assistant for several photographers, including Stéphane Gallois, Grégoire Alexandre, Vincent Peters, Jeff Burton.
