Simon Christen, grew up in Bern, Switzerland, is a professional animator and an aspiring photographer. Having graduated from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA, he has worked at studios like Disney and Pixar (where he is currently an animator).
In the past few years I have developed a passion for photography. It started as just browsing portfolios I admired; wondering how their photos were taken, processed, and treated.
