Introduce yourself in a few words and describe your background in a few lines.

My name is Jean Smerecnig and I come from Widnau in the canton of St. Gallen. I have a small family consisting of my wife and my 4-year-old daughter. My project is to become an independent photographer. Before taking this step, I worked as a supplier in a technology company.

What inspired you to become a photographer?

Photography has always been a part of me all my life, because I like to capture my memories in pictures, pictures say more than 1000 words, pictures are timeless.

What do you like most about taking pictures? and why?

What I like best about photography is that you have a lot of freedom, it gives me the feeling of holding on to something for eternity, even though almost everyone does it with a smartphone, knowing how to use a DSLR or DLSM is just beautiful. My speciality is landscape photography, because I do it with passion. I have been actively photographing landscapes for almost 5 years now, and real estate photography for almost 2 years now.

What is your go-to camera / lenses (your set-up)?

It's simple, the cooperation with Backbone allows me to turn my hobby into a profession. I also owe you a lot of contacts with people from the real estate sector.

Why did you choose to work with Backbone?

Backbone is a very reliable company that allows photographers to live from their passion. With high quality assignments, it is very pleasant to work for them as a photographer.

How has the collaboration with Backbone benefitted you?

It's simple, the cooperation with Backbone allows me to turn my hobby into a profession. I also owe you a lot of contacts with people from the real estate sector.

How would you describe your relationship with Backbone?

The relationship with Backbone is very good and always professional and serious. Thanks to the regular contact with them, it is very easy for me to do my job perfectly, and if there are any questions, Backbone is always there for me. I would like to continue working with Backbone for a long time to come, because it is a very competent company and I like our collaboration.
