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 want high quality photos illustrating their work, especially in a research context. Some photos resulting from these collaborations have been used widely in the public media and have been featured as front covers for multiple scientific journals.
