SPC Timeline

Meet the team

Osan (Oguzhan) Altun

Osan’s adventure with photography started as a “hobby”, trying to take good photos of the the Wine & Tapas parties he was organising in Geneva. This turned into a passion very quickly – after a 14 years finance career, Osan decided to leave his well paid corporate job to pursue his dreams and convert his photography passion into a full time job. After studying at New York Film Academy, he launched “Geneva Photo Club”, which quickly became “Swiss Photo Club” with incredible feedback from students. Osan is busy with three jobs at the moment, wishing for more than 24 hours in a day: managing SPC, doing photography and teaching photography.

Interesting fact:
His finance career started because of his passion for dancing. Just like photography started because of wine:)

Joan Berns

Joan Berns

Joan built her marketing career working for huge companies in the United States before changing everything at once and joining a startup in Switzerland.  Although she was first drawn to photography to capture happy family moments, she is currently focused on taking photos of her beautiful new country that do the scenery justice.

Interesting fact:

Joan’s natural body temperature is 1°C colder than the average human, which must be why she is so cool.

Jean-Baptiste Carrard

After his marketing degree and a four-year career in a very famous sports club in Geneva, Jean-Baptiste moved to New York for more than one year to study more at Columbia University. It’s while criss-crossing the streets of the Big Apple that his passion for photography materialised. Back in Switzerland, this lover of animals turned to the wildlife photography that he exercises as often as possible.

As a member of the Swiss Photo Club team, Jean-Baptiste combines business with pleasure, his work and his passion. The dream!

Interesting Fact:

His nickname “JB” is widely regarded as a good representation of his friendly nature and attitude.
