Born in England, I've lived in Switzerland since 1994. I trained as a graphic designer in Zurich between 1997 – 2002. More recently I have moved on to work as photo editor and joined the team at swissinfo.ch in March 2017.

Photographers were asked to showcase the charm of the countryside – a wide-ranging topic for a photography competition. Images were sent in over the period of a year, resulting in thousands of pictures for the jury to go through. Prizes were awarded to the top three photos, plus there were winners in nine categories.
competition was launched by External link Swiss Farmers Welcome You, a campaign run by the External link Swiss Farmers’ Association. The aim of Agrimage.ch is to document the people, countryside, products and animals in the agricultural sector, giving an intimate portrait of the work and identities involved. External link
