I’m John Wilhelm, I’m a photoholic. My profession is IT, my passion is photography.  I was born 1970 in Winterthur Switzerland where I still live together with my wife and my three girls.

Photography was always important in my life. My father was an experienced hobby-photographer and founded at least two local photography-associations. So I grew up in an environment of cameras, magazines, lenses, self-made camera-baggage’s, darkrooms and funny weddings.

I wasn’t very excited back then about those films and development processes. It was such a lot of fiddling in my opinion.

The importance of photography changed into joy when I was holding my first digital cam in my hands. The fire was sparked off and a long journey begun, a journey through lots of camera systems, techniques, experiences and finally software products. February 2011, I decided to take a step across the border of plain photography. I entered the world of composing and retouching. That was the best thing I every did… now photography is a complete passion!
