Bachelor Project



As a professional photographer filming comes very natural to me. I mostly do small productions for online platforms filming with my DSLR camera. I’ve assisted on a few bigger productions for TV and advertisement but also produced for my own clients.



I did a 3-year apprenticeship at a photo studio in Zurich where I learned classical photography. I use my camera almost ever day. I shoot events for clients, projects for and use it a lot for school projects.



Animation is my newest skill and still needs some practice. I’m perfectly capable of doing easy things in After Effects. I do not intend to be a professional animator, but it’s great to be able to add infographics and texts into videos.


Graphic Design

Even tough I’m not formally trained as graphic designer, I can easily handle InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop and have a good eye for design and esthetics.
