I'm a 28-year-old designer in visual communication and photography student from Lugano, Switzerland, now living in Paris, Frnce. I got started in photography by my parents when I was 8 years old. They got me a point & shoot for my birthday and passed me the photography bug. Soon I dropped it for my mother's more enjoyable film SLR and stack of lenses, and kept shooting with it until the digital revolution came along. At that point I decided it was time to get my own camera. After a brief affair with a Fuji digital bridge camera I then moved to Pentax. I started with an *ist D; then I also worked my way back on older Pentax film cameras to complete the experience, putting some darkroom time under my belt. To this day I'm using a Pentax K-5 and various Pentax film cameras (LX, MX, K1000, 645 and 6x7).
