Half Swiss, half Iranian, born in the UK, spent my younger years in Austria but native in Luxembourgish, French and German. Yes, that’s my story…
I dedicate my life to developing concepts that focus on immortilising one specific moment in time by utilising my creativity and passion for the still shot.
I love to take pictures that tell a story.
Photography, to me, represents observation, the creation of history, the capturing of culture and the embracement and reflextion of an era.
This all links to my lifetime purpose, the preservation of memory.
I specialise in taking an idea and developing it into a creative concept, gradually adjusting and tweaking it until I attain the quality I am looking for.
Architect of your Life.
Each and every one of us is the designer and architect of our own life. It's up to us to decide which direction. I belong behind a camera, paving out my path whilst capturing every moment.
Each experience allows me to grow as a person and as an artist. My lifetime goal is to be able to leave something behind. Something classic, human, authentic and quintessentially, timeless.
Why is photography important to you?
Personally, I see photography as a way to pause a specific point in time, thus making it ageless and establishing its place in history.
How did you get into photography and what experience do you have?
I was brought up with photography as my mother was a photographer. I
remember loving helping her out back in the day, so this is where my passion
came from. I recall the mystery and bewilderment of the “dark room” and
being surrounded by art in picture form. That was over 15 years ago
My favourite picture is that of my grandfather. This will always hold a special place in my heart. It's a classic memory that embodies our relationship.
What gear do you use?
I mainly use the new Lumix, a digital full frame in combination with a
Hasselblad and Leica and occasionally pick up my Pentacon 6 or a Bronica.
Do you do analog?
I believe analog photography adds a more personal feel as it requires a lot more attention and care to take a single shot. As an enthusiast myself, I see analog as going back to the roots of the art of photography and understanding how to use it is a testament to the craftmanship itself.
Do you do workshops or teach?
Absolutely. I am always interested in passing on what I know and offering a different artistic perspective. Additionally, being able to network with people that share similar passion and values for photography is something I find compelling.
