I’M WORKING ON A NEW PAGE! YES I KNOW! IT’S BEEN A WHILE. BEARE WITH ME! :-)
It’s been a pleasure to once again shoot the talented Anna Känzig. This time in her home in Zürich.
One of the funnier shoots I’ve had! No wonder! Hazel Brugger is our new shooting star: Comedian, author, poetry-slam-dunking 20 something! Official press pictures, as well as her book cover an author pic by me. See & buy more pics here:
Ben Moore, astrophysicist, university professor and musician introducing his favorite spot in Zürich in this weeks Vivai Magazin. What an interesting person!
Another strong and creative woman in front of my lens! Yvonne Apiyo Braendle-Amolo! She’s a multitalent and so much fun to hang out with! More pictures and an Interview by the lovely Anne-Sophie Keller soon out in Migros Magazin.
Verwaltungsratspräsident der AHV, Marco Netzer in der aktuellen Bilanz.
Last but not least this month I had the chance to meet and photograph yet another inspiring woman, Simonetta Sommaruga, Switzerland’s Federal President 2015. More pictures and an interesting interview with her will be published June 24th in annabelle magazine.
It was such a pleasure taking this high spirited womans picture in Japan. She is the woman at work in the latest issue of annabelle magazin, working as a cleaner at a construction site, as well as being a yoga teacher and webdesigner. Thank you Ai Koshima for being wonderful and so inspirational!
I’ve been taking pictures of woman at work all around the world for annabelle magazine, many of them already have been printed and the next issue will feature lovely Kashena from Jamaica. This awesome street opera singer Melody Matthiews from L.A. unfortunately never made it into the magazine, cause she’s of bad handwriting and an unreadable email address :-/
Back in Switzerland, back at work, no more denying it!
Lucky me, my travels continue, one mountain to another, working on a lovely story on swiss hotels! Let the sunshine in and keep the good food coming!
Like pretty much every photographer in the world wide web I’m working on a new website. It’s an ongoing project, that needs more time and affection that I currently have. So please be patient and don’t hesitate to contact me for my latest work and updates! I’ll be better with this poor site till then :-)
We are back from Jamaica, where I photographed a travel story and met up with Switzerland’s most awesome reggae artist Phenomden (to watch the World Cup final,) but also to take some new pictures for him! Good times!
Jamaica! One Love! More soon…
Kuba and Food. Not usually mentioned in one sentence together, at least not in a positive one. Saison Küche Magazin sent us to Havanna to proof that there is a lot changing in the cuban cuisine! And yes, we found delicious restaurants an recipes and definitely no one lost any weight while in Havanna! Story out in November!
Time flies! The first story we shot upon our arrival at our first destination, Los Angeles, had already been published! We spent a day with the lovely daughters of Dieter Meier, Sophie and Ele and there family in there cute and cozy house in Silverlake. Here’s the PDF and some outtakes!
I’ve been MIA for a while from my site, I know I know. The reason is a great one though! I left Zurich for a year and am traveling the world. I’m still working and taking pictures, just a little less so. Instead there is more time to breath and live, which will bring me back to Zurich relaxed and full of new creativity in April 2015! So yes, there might be less news, but I’ll promise to update when I have time and Internet. Hasta luego!
