Already as a young boy, at the age of four, I had the great opportunity to fly with my parents in a Swiss Air Douglas DC-3 Dakota, from Basel-Mulhouse to Geneva.
At this time my father uses to work for Air France, Switzerland. Many
times I could listen to his stories about aircrafts and airlines. More and more I got fascinated by aviation. In the mid seventies I’ll earned my first money working for former airline SATA and CTA at Zurich airport. At this time and later one when I was abroad I’ll discovered my passion to photographing aircrafts. When ever I got the time you will find me and my “Spotter” collogues somewhere at an air show, either in Switzerland or abroad.

Mein erster Kontakt mit der Fliegerei kam bereits als ich vier Jahre alt war (1961) und mit meinen Eltern in einer Swiss Air Douglas DC-3 Dakota von Basel nach Genf mitfliegen durfte, da wir eine Verwandte in der Rhonestadt besuchten.
In dieser Zeit arbeitete mein Vater für die Air France, Schweiz und so bekam ich
schon in frühen Jahren allerlei Geschichten über Flugzeuge und Airlines zu hören, die mich immer mehr faszinierten. In den 1970er Jahren verdiente ich mein erstes Geld als Stationsangestellter der ehemaligen Schweizer Fluggesellschaften SATA und CTA, in Zürich-Kloten. In dieser Zeit und auch danach als ich im Ausland war, kam auch noch das Fotografieren dazu, dass ich dann intensiv, in Kombination mit der Aviatik, ausüben konnte. Wann immer möglich besuche ich mit meinen Aviatik Freunden die diversen Air Shows im In- und Ausland und finde es toll wenn unsere Leser an unseren Berichten und Fotos gefallen finden.
