With over 25 years of experience as a professional airline pilot and as an avid amateur nightscape photographer, I am equally at home both in aviation and in astrophotography.
Presently I fly as a Captain on the Boeing 777-300ER for Swiss International Ailines Ltd., the national carrier of my home country Switzerland.
I started photography during the film age and expanded into deep sky imaging at the beginning of the millenium. In 2015 I went the "wrong" way and "downgraded" to nightscape photography, because I not only love the stats, but also like visiting great landscapes. So this was the logical path.
During my night flights I have been pushing the limits and quality of my airborne astrophotography out of fast-flying jet airplanes.
