WELCOME

Welcome to my website www.captures.ch. I’m a landscape, nature, wildlife and travel photographer from Switzerland. One of my favorite hobbies is to travel around the world. To make photos from the most exiting places at the right time, takes often much endurance and a long travel or hike in. You can find the newest photos under Blog and my portfolio under Portfolio.

Enjoy my photographs, the captures of my life!

Lapland: Arctic beauty

Als wir Zürich mit dem Flugzeug in Richtung Kittilä verlassen, sind wir froh dem Nebel und dem schlechten Wetter zu entfliehen. Unsere Entscheidung letztes Jahr war richtig, Anfangs Februar die Schweiz für eine Woche zu verlassen und nach Finnisch-Lappland zu gehen. Mit dem Wetter scheinen wir auch Glück zu haben. Schnee hat es soviel wie schon lange nicht mehr und auch ein paar Tage Sonnenschein prophezeit die Wettervorhersage.

LIGHTS OVER SWITZERLAND – The four seasons (4K, UHD)

Four seasons by day and night

After more than a year of work it is now here, my third and so far most elaborate timelapse film. It was shot with a high-resolution Nikon D800 at some of the many beautiful places in nature. Winter, spring, summer and fall, all four seasons united in one film, this was a big part of my motivation. I planned my recordings meticulously and even had to write a small script, because I had too many ideas, which I sorted out and later realized. The action didn’t always come as desired – no snow, no fog, covered instead of a starry sky. The result is a five-minute-long short film with the most beautiful shots I took.

It won’t be long before nature is no longer to be found like this. Steady climate change, environmental influences and mankind. All factors that lead to accelerated change. Today we move faster, want to discover more, want to enjoy lonely moments and push further and further into the untouched nature. Well-known places around the world are wildly shared, shared and commented on social platforms. In our search for something new we launch photo drones, make selfies in the most daring places. I am also part of this world. Therefore:”Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints” based on the model of the oldest national parks in the world. And now enjoy my film!

5 minutes film
20-30kg luggage
26 scenes
800 GB data
7000 single images
