Welcome to bewegtezeit. Time is motion, and photographs are a wonderful means of trying to capture that magic moment in time before it is lost forever. A good photograph will make your eyes wander, discovering more and more as you linger in this second when the trigger was pulled, this second that is frozen forever. At the other end of the time spectrum, time lapses are short movie clips put together from a series of photograph taken over time – things slow to the human eye suddenly are agitated and moving – bewegtezeit.

If you have seen a little bit of my website by now, you may be interested who I am and what my motivation for the site and my photography is.
I am Swiss born and based, currently living on the shores of beautiful Lake Constance. Photography is not my main profession – I am a geophysicist by training, with a MSc degree from the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich). My major was in seismology, but currently I am working as a flood specialist with Zurich Insurance. However, the intricate and fascinating realm of Geosciences is still at my heart, trying to understand how our Mother Earth (“Gaia”) works and what we can learn from it. Photography is a great means of capturing moments of nature, at any scale, at any time, in any dynamic way imaginable.
Whenever possible, I have my camera equipment and tripod with me and try to discover the world with this “third eye” of mine. I have extensively traveled all my privileged life, from Australia to Mongolia, from Hawai’i to the Canary Islands, from the easternmost tip of the US to the westernmost and southernmost. I am very forgetful of all the many things that I see, discover and try to digest, and so I used to keep a diary before blogs were invented, and still now I think taking notes and capturing both text and picture is key to understanding where one has been and perhaps where one is going. As such, I have tried to combine my photography, geoscience and writing skills, and for six years now I have been a somewhat successful but not-so-well-selling author of the travel series “Georeisen“.
But I don’t just keep my hobbies to myself – I am available for your assignment! Check out the assignment page to learn about my experience and my equipment to convince you that I am the right person for your job, task, idea or vision.
