I am a 30 year-old Swiss freelance photographer based by Lake Geneva, Switzerland, shooting both editorial and commercial assignments. I am passionate about visual storytelling and strive to create surprising and graphical content for my clients on a daily basis.

Over the last ten years my pictures have been published worldwide by numerous corporate clients and major news outlets via collaborations with news agencies such as Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg and Keystone_ATS. Above all else I seek diversity in my projects, my interests spanning a number of fields as I believe that a good story cannot be told from a single angle. I proudly hold a MSc in micro engineering and a PhD in nanoscience and photonics from the Swiss Federal Institute of technology in Lausanne. Although my research days are past, the geek that I am looks forward to finding novel solutions and solving technical challenges to get the magic picture on the ground, in the air or under water!

Valentin hates biographies written in the third person, wasting his time and jobs that require more time editing than shooting.
