Author: Biography of Wilfried Hinz
I was born 1959 in Switzerland. Today I’m living together with my wife and my two children in Belp, near the Swiss capital Bern.
From 1996 - 1998 I learned the basic skills and techniques of a photographer at the School of Arts in Bern/Switzerland. From 1999 - 2001 I continued my studies to become a professional photographer together with the GAF 99 (Group autodidact photographers).
Beside the photography I have another passion … travelling around the world. I have set my foot on different continents: Australia, Asia, North- and Central America, Africa and almost all countries throughout Europe. Through my travels I have started taking pictures.
I am not fond of studio photography. I always take pictures as they are in the moment.
I prefer clear and simple pictures. My motto in photography is: Less is more!
