You want to discover photography and understand its technical basics?

Then this course is the right one for you. We will learn the basics of photography and how to apply what you have learned to the settings of your camera.

Short bio
My relationship with photography began when I was 9 years old. In the 1980s I worked as a client consultant. Special attention was paid to the need for photographic equipment. With a passion for technology and human relations I worked for one of the leading brands in this field. I have been advising professional retailers and photographers for 26 years. For 3 years I have been giving photography courses for amateurs and advanced photographers. Since 2018 I am also active for technical support as a member of the Fotofestival Lenzburg.

I bring a personal vision and proven experience from many years in this field.
