I am a nature photographer living in Switzerland. My photography goes from beautiful landscapes to its small inhabitants, the insects. I collaborate with biologists who were seeking quality photos illustrating their work, especially in a research context. Some pictures resulting from these collaborations have been used widely in the public media. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or are interested in photos of your own model organism.
