Simon Christen, I am a professional animator and an aspiring photographer.Grew up in Bern, Switzerland. During high school I was introduced to computer graphics and started playing around with programs such as Photoshop and 3D Studio Max. I quickly became fascinated with CG and threw myself into learning as much as I could.Eventually I decided to pursue an education in this new found passion and leave my home to study at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA. Since graduating, with a BFA in Animation, I have been fortunate to work at studios like Pixar and Disney. Today currently an animator at Pixar.
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. Eventually I decided to buy my first DSLR and began to experiment on my own, taking thousands of photos to only be satisfied with very few. Over time I have found my eye in some ways, feeling excited each time I catch something worth sharing.
