Thank you for visiting my website. It's a great honor having you here since especially in todays times people have no time for anything.
My name is Martin Burri and I live in the beautiful town Rheinfelden in Switzerland. I work as a full-time electrical engineer. On this job I can combine my creativity with money-making business. It allows me to create things which are meaningful and that's the main driving factor for me as a kid of the generation Y.
In my spare time though I like to do other stuff. Besides some physical exercises which are not only required but also fun for me, I like to do small private coding projects and I love to drive my motorbike.
But probably the most time consuming hobby is photography. I was fascinated by the camera of my father already as a kid. Later, my parents bought me a compact film camera. At that time it was point-and-shooting exclusively, without any knowledge about photography.
The interest got awakened more seriously in 2006 where I bought my first DSLR camera. I was fascinated by the possibilities and the ease to take photos. In 2008 I finally dived deep into photography together with two colleagues. We learned a lot about light and off-camera flash techniques, posing, etc.
Nowadays, as time allows, I still grab my camera and go out for shooting, especially if a "project" attracts my attention. I love to take pictures of animals in the wild and I also love to travel with my camera. It lets me experience the scenes more deeply by taking time to really look at them. Sometimes I also take pictures of people

Weather forecast for Switzerland
Here you can see the actual weather situation and the forecast for Switzerland. They have quite reliable regional weather forecasts (indicating forecast probabilities).
Probably one of the best sites when it comes to off-camera lighting techniques. David Hobby, the owner of this site, explains how he uses several flashes to get the best out of his photos. Don't miss the Lighting 101 and Lighting 102 online-seminars that give you very detailed information on flash photography. Update: Lighting 103 is underway!
The best site I know for on-camera lighting techniques. Neil van Niekerk explains very nicely how he uses mainly one on-camera flash for his on-location wedding shootings. His techniques are intuitive and easy to learn. And they are fast. Very useful for events when you don't have time to experiment. The site also covers off-camera lighting topics, studio photography, working with video lights, and much much more.
My favourite site for camera reviews. The authors there offer very detailed and well-done, precise technical reviews.
A vrey versatile technical website about digital camera sensors. With technical SNR and Dynamic Range measurements.
Another site for camera and lens reviews. Check this out before you buy a new lens.
A collection of all Lenses that Nikon ever made. Interesting if you are looking for a new one.
A good place to sell and buy secondhand camera equipment.

Masterplan to save the world
This paragraph is not to be taken too serious - it reflects my thinking and it's up to you if you share my opinion or not. I hope that you have your own opinion, as long as you have one.
So, how can we improve the world? Impossible? - No! It starts with us since we are part of the world. Every small step in the right direction helps.
I suggest to consider the following points:
- Be a human. We are no machines nor are we gods. Treat humans like humans.
- Respect the others and your environment - think of how your actions influence both.
- If you can vote, then do it! It's your voice that counts how things will change.
- Don't believe blindly! Always inform yourself from several independent sources - don't trust the trolls.
- If you fear something, then ask yourself why? Do you have enough information and how probable is it that the fear comes true?
- Support recycling. What if we could make companies use only recyclable materials wherever possible?
- Use and support open source software.
