After one year of my timeout I had the chance to work with friend, muse and like-minded Elsa Destange on a new project called “Queen of Crows”. A dark minded theme in the style of my first works, when i started with photography. It was fun to do that and lucky enough we had some foggy weather. Special thanks to Elsa for this.
I decided to finish 2015 with the exhibition and taking a break for personal progress. Special thanks to all who worked with me since 2008 until 2015 on my projects. Personal thanks to Elsa Destange for your friendship which increased during the last years since the first shooting in Paris. Special thanks to my wife for taking time, helping me and being patient with me. May we see what 2016 will bring.
Since I finished my last project for 2014 I have the chance to show one of my projects i created in 2014 at the biggest national exhibition in photography the photo15. From January 9th to 13th 2015 the photo 15 will take place at the Maag Halle Zurich. Would love to see some known faces there. I would like to say thanks to all the lovely people working with me on my concepts and supported me in the past years. www.photo-schweiz.ch
I`ve just finished the post production on my latest project entitled “Voyeur”. I decided to do the post production in a movie style colored scheme. The reason for my decision to go in this direction was, because the Voyeur is actually the one looking at the picture not the male protagonist in the picture itself like it implies first. To reach the impact on the pictures, I had to do a lot of thinking and tests until I finally got the angle and cut I felt a voyeuristic impact. Part I is the soft part, PartII shows a harder sexual impact while the first set has a more erotic content. Special thanks to the models Alex and Alexander for your trust and professionalism. I am aware to not be able doing such projects without you.
Just finished the intense post production of “bigotry.blindness.stagnation”. The three portraits show aspects of human error about belief, love and hope. I choose contrasts in clothing by using an evening dress and leather gloves to achieve a harder impact of the theme. The post production goes in the same direction with a mixture of HDR and clean beauty retouching. Special thanks to Chantal and my wife for your support.
Last weekend I shoot different styles of images including a series, some with long time shutter speed and portraits. The series entitled “Legacy” just hit the website. I would like to thank Chantal Styger for taking her time working with me and my beloved wife for her support again.
Elsa and Aleksa are definitely my two all time favourite models I worked with. The reason is the devotion to their modelling and their mindset. I never met other models wich impressed me more with their talent and character in every way. Now for maybe the only time I had the chance to have a shooting with both together. What more can i wish for. professionalism, fun, devotion, friendship and kindness would describe the atmosphere in the studio. We worked out an editorial with graphic clothes about Love and Hate. Some images are done like real life scenes and others are symbolic. The story is about one part of the relationship is taking too much of the other because love is not on the same level. Thank you for this incredible shooting experience.
