Dear readers, 2013 is a big year for me! I just completed my first position on a feature film set as a 1st Assistant Director! The film is a swiss production called “20 Regeln für Sylvie” (20 Rules for Sylvie) and the shoot has been great (challenging and crazy at times, of course, but great!). I had a great deal of responsibility, and saw how all the mechanisms on a big movie set work. However, I was never terrified. To me, the joy was the dominating feeling. It is the strongest confirmation in my professional life so far that I have chosen the right profession for myself! Thanks to that amazing team and our crazy crazy CRAZY director Giacun Caduff, who gave me this chance!
The second big thing that just happened is: Photo Botos published a photo of mine on their site! It is one of my favorites, I took it on a spot I love: on the Isola Del Giglio. On it you can see a rock, shaped like a tooth, and behind it the Isola Montechristo (famous from the movie “the count of Monte Christo”). The light was perfect, it was a magic moment. Take a look and read the full story here 🙂
The wedding season has started! This was a very tumultuous setting, the weather didn’ t really play along unfortunately. We were all freezing when I took this picture (most of all the bride and me, which made them laugh, and was therefore a good thing:-)).
But even when the weather isn’ t as nice as you’ d hoped, it’ s still good if there are some nice photos there afterwards to remember the extraordinary, exceptional and emotional ‘most beautiful day of your life’. Our wedding couple was not distracted by the weather, they had a blast. This was the first wedding I photographed, so I plan on improving some things, but I’ m quite happy with the result.
If you’ re interested in having your wedding, birthday party, or another event photographed or filmed, or you’ d just like some beautiful photos of yourself, or want to surprise someone with such a gift, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I’ ve declared my love for this place a few times now, and I can’ t wait to go back. There’ s such a feeling of bliss when you swim in the clean, turqoise water in the baia del Campese, or take the surfboard and go out to the farthest rock you see there, which is called the “faraglione”, or the “tooth” by us. You can also go on foot to that spot. From there you can see the Island of Monte Christo, and if the sight is clear, you even see Sardinia.
What is your favourite spot on earth? Please comment below!
On a rainy weekend like this, I try to think of the sunny spots on earth, like my favourite Island, the Isola Del Giglio. Its name might be familiar to you because of the cruise ship that is still lying there, but I’ ve known the Island for over 20 years. I love the Italian culture, the ocean, the climate and size of the island, the fact that two thirds of it is integral nature reserve and the macchia. Then there is good coffee (like anywhere in Italy) and in autumn you find Porcini. Then take a look at the picture and you’ ll find a couple more reasons why I love this place so much. And I don’ t like the fact that the island’ s pure waters would almost have been polluted and lots of animals would have lost their natural habitat. All for a captain who wanted to show off instead of taking his responsibility seriously.

Here are some shots of a photo shoot I did last week: enjoying all the colours of spring, and the feeling it gives you: joy, freedom, and so forth…enjoy!
Here are some “bubbly” shots:

On a winter’ s day, when the clouds were hanging over the city, we decided to go onto a mountain top to have the sun above and the clouds beneath us. The choice fell upon mount Rigi, and it was one of our most marvellous days this winter! There is nothing to relax you more than the mountain view and air! And some real snow:-)
This is one of the pictures I shot that you can buy. Take a look at the gallery here.
When I was in Ticino recently I enjoyed the sunny weather immensely and that’ s how I got the idea to express the great atmosphere with an experiment. I know this photo won’ t match everyone’ s taste, but I wanted to try something new and a bit out of the ordinary. May the seagulls flying in the glistening sun make you smile for a moment despite the icy temperatures we have on the northern face of the alps.
Any opinions are welcome, please comment below!
In the winter months the grey misty scenery can be a bit grinding, that’ s why I enjoyed a day in Ticino (the southern, italian-speaking region of Switzerland) so much. There was blue sky and the sun, and it was about 6 degrees warmer than on the northern side of the Alps. This Gabbiano was very happy to be fed some bread by a walker, and so was I because I got to make this picture! Hope you enjoy!
