About the Photographer
The spotlight of this website is to show you my best aviation pictures. The photography it's only a hobby for me. I still work as a design engineer for a world-famous aircraft company in Switzerland.
I’ve been interested in aviation since I was a boy and saw my first airshow in Birrfeld 1997 in Switzerland.
In 1999 I had a formative experience in Payerne: impressive JATO-assisted Mirage takeoffs and very fast low level flyover of two reconnaissance aircraft Mirage IIIRS are one of my best highlights in my life. My heart beats faster when I feel the power of the military jets.
From this past Airshows I only had the analog photos from my fathers camera.
My first own digital photos I took with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1. It was very difficult with the fast jets without a viewfinder and only the LCD Display. But some photos are also nice.
Later I had the privilege to borrow the mirror reflex camera from my father. After then I teaching myself to improve my knowledge of photography.
But the best is practice, practice and practice....
In less than a second you have the chance to get a good dynamic picture .... otherwise the jet is miles away from you in the next few seconds :)
That's the facination of aircraft photography...You don't have a second chance!
In 2014 I started with my own camera the Canon 70D. A really great camera for someone getting into photography. In Summer 2022 a new era began with the Canon R7. In combination of the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM objective I shoot the most shoots.
Sometimes I pushed my camera to it's limits. But the woman or men behind the camera is the much more factor for good pics that a good cam body. I shoot RAW only as it affords me the ability for greater editing techniques with Lightroom and Photoshop. These tools allows me faster edits and to catalog all my photos.
